Thankful Thursday

It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for.

I think it’s a good thing to do each week. Focus on the positive things in our lives.

Make sure you link up to the Blog Hop at Brian’s Home and get the code to put on your blog. Then visit all the participants.

True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.  Seneca

Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.  Ralph Waldo Emerson

We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.  John F. Kennedy

What are you thankful for today?

    Wonderful quotes. So many don’t appreciate their “now”, and spend their lives “wishing”. Enjoy what you have and in the moment because life can change in an instant.

    We are thankful for work, even though it’s not our favorite thing in the world.

    And if you want to add to your quote collection, “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and in everything give thanks, for this is the will of G-d for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 It means a lot to me that He says to be thankful “in” all circumstances, not “for” all circumstances.

    I am thankful that our Vet who constantly kept getting high BP readings for Dakota, sent us back to the specialist that Dakota had gone to in June (where he had NORMAL BP readings). My Vet was getting readings of 180, 190, etc….well, we went to the specialist Vet today and they got the highest as 154, the lowest was in the 140s. My Vet had said if they got a 170 he would leave it alone and assume that THEY are the problem. Obviously, while I love them, THEY are the problem!!!! Now I am wondering what possibly takes place at grooming (because Dakota gets groomed at our Vet too), that could be making him have “white coat syndrome” there. Waiting for that Vet to get back to me, but am beyond grateful my boy had GOOD BP READINGS! Sending lots of gratitude and love!

    These are all very profound quotes. It makes me a little bit sad that so many people still are so greedy when even Seneca told us so long ago we should just appreciate what we already have.
    Have a wonderful Thankful Thursday!

    I love those quotes about being grateful and at peace…especially the Seneca one. It’s my definition of experiencing true joy in life. I linked up late over at Brian’s. I hope you and yours have a wonderful weekend. xoxo

    I like all of these! I am grateful for wise people who share their wisdom with us. I have always said it is better sometimes to learn from others wisdom and experience than to make the same mistake yourself.

    Thanks for sharing friend!

    Sandee ~ this is a magnificent thankful post ~ sometimes, though, it is hard when one is missing people who have died and loneliness sets in sometimes ~
