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.

I’m thankful for the hints of spring. I start to really get a spring in my step when the hints of spring shows up.

I’m thankful for my husband. I told him I wanted to replace my Claude Monet prints with hand painted ones. He said yes. I ordered my first one with a Piccadilly Classic Gold frame. This one will go in our dining room.

I’m thankful for all my blogging buddies and all their wonderful pups, kitties, horses, donkeys, and birds. You all bring me so much joy.

On a sad note a blogging buddy, Jan Williams, of The Poodle (and dog) blog, was killed when a drunk driver crashed into her home. Also seriously injured was her son and daughter in law. We bond with so many bloggers over the years. Love each other and cherish the time we have together.

What are you thankful for today?

    I’m so sorry to hear about your blog friend. She’s not one that I know. Prayers for her family.
    That’s a beautiful painting.
    Today I am thankful for my neighbor who I heard outside snowblowing the end of my driveway.

    Oh my goodness, that’s awful about Jan. I really hope her son and daughter in law make it through and recover fully but that’s just so, so sad. A tragic loss of life for the sake of alcohol.xx

    Thank you for being so wonderful and hosting so many fun hops each week so we bloggers can get to know each other better. That is just beyond words awful with Jan. To be killed in your own home by a car, and a drunk driver – there is no excuse, and there are no words. Such a tragedy.

  4. Brian says:

    Such nice thankfuls and that painting really is very pretty. We were sad to hear about Jan, sad indeed. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

    I’m thankful for a wonderful cruise with MaryLou & my friends. It was amazing.

    I’m so shocked about Jan. She was new to my blog and she was excited to find out about my cruise. This really shocks me. RIP my new friend Jan.

    Oh my gawd…I cannot believe the news about our blogging friend, Jan. She will be sorely missed and we send oodles of poodles of loving thoughts and prayers of comfort to her family and all those who were touched by her. πŸ’”

  7. Cranky says:

    Just glad to be healthy. Looking forward to Spring as well. This Winter has been a dud, wet and boring, none of the fun Winter stuff.

  8. Eastside Cats says:

    I love impressionist art, and attended a Monet exhibit at the National Gallery in London in 2018. There is a Van Gogh exhibit coming to the Detroit Institute of Arts this summer; you can bet hard cash that I’ll be there!

    That’s terrible news about Jan. She and I never crossed (virtual) paths, but her family will be in my prayers.

    Best wishes to you and your husband. I cherish our interactions. ~hugs~ Take care.

    What a beautiful painting….lots of pops of red…my happy color.
    I was so sorry to read about Jan. I didn’t know her; however, after reading the post I know how very special she was.
    Hugs Cecilia

    Sorry for the little puddle and the specially the humans injured. You are very correct about this wordpress community. I too have gotten to meet great interesting people and not only through the internet but actually through the years a few of those people we have met face to face. I can truly say they are my friends and not only those I have met face to face.

    IΒ΄m grateful my mother is still alive, she has stage 3 cancer and now after one chemotherapy that lasted 6 months failed to get rid of the cancer, she went into a test program approved by the FDA in the U.S but not here in Spain nor Europe and that one also didn’t work. So now she goes to the third and last option which is to take one pill of chemotherapy a day and one chemotherapy session in the hospital once a week. IΒ΄m her caretaker full time. IΒ΄m basically moved into her new apartment and sleep in the same room since a lot of nights she sweats a lot so we have to change sheets and basically I barely sleep just having an eye out in case something wrong happens suddenly. So grateful she is still alive even though she is weak, grateful my presence makes her happy, she is an extremely strong an independent woman and often says she’s sorry for me to be asked to clean this or that, buy this or that, take care of the dog, e.t.c. I smile and tell her sheΒ΄ll pay me with interest in 20 years plus.

      I love Monet. I can finally afford to own a few reproductions. It makes my heart happy. Yes it’s so sad about Jan. A lovely lady and so very kind. Like you. πŸ™‚

    • Sandee says:

      We’re getting around 6 paintings, but not all at once. Kind of pricey with the frames, but I’m so excited about having oils instead of prints.

      Yes so very sad about Jan. She was a wonderful blogging buddy. πŸ™‚
