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 Freedom of Religion. Many around the world will never experience what we take for granted here.

I’m thankful weekends. It’s a time to go out and explore the world.

I’m thankful for all the pets I visit while blogging. Although we don’t have any anymore, I sure have fallen in love with so many precious babies that my blogging buddies have. I grieve when they leave their peeps and go to the rainbow bridge.

I’m thankful that I can read. Many can’t. I can travel around the world and never leave the comfort of my chair.

β€œGratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie

What are you thankful for today?

    I am also thankful for freedom of religion in our country which many have taken for granted. Thankful also for the internet, computer and smart phones which we cannot do without.

  2. Ann Thompson says:

    Love that quote. Being grateful can make a big difference in how we view everything.
    I feel the same way about all the blogging pets I’ve met. I’ve cried over severeal who have left their humans.

  3. Victor S E Moubarak says:

    There are so many things to be thankful for in our lives, but we go along and take them for granted. God protects us and saves us from so many dangers and troubles that we are not even aware of. Yet we forget to thank Him.

    God bless.

  4. Sandra Hangey says:

    I too am thankful I can read just like you are not only does it let me travel around the world and visit places that I would never visit and meet people I would never meet but it means that my eyes are still healthy and that I can see which is something that I’m very thankful for. Mysite my hearing and the fact that I can still walk

  5. My GBGV Life says:

    I think most people are more thankful then ever having had our freedom taken away with this virus thing. We are all now thankful for basic life things that we all used to take for granted.

  6. Linda Arthur Tejera says:

    This virus thing has been a wake-up call to many. This is the first time in the history of this country that our freedom of religion has been impacted by government closure of churches. We’re on a slippery slope and I hope people wake up soon.

  7. Margaret Elmendorf says:

    I am thankful for all of our blogging buddies, even if we don’t blog any more. We love reading the blogs. We are thankful for the roof over our heads and for the food we eat. Sandee hope you and Zane have a perfect day.

  8. Eastside Cats says:

    I remember when I discovered the library at my elementary school; the trajectory of my life changed in that moment!
    Reading, especially non-school books, has been a major force in shaping the person that I am today.
    Very powerful stuff.

  9. Paul Pietrangelo says:

    Canada has allowed me to have the freedom to have religion, talk whatever I want within the rules. These people who think that they can say whatever no matter, they want are wrong. Respect is important, I’m thankful that people respect me. I’m thankful for having my friends. They give me strength everyday. Enjoy your day Sandee and please keep safe.

    Freedom of religion and being able to read are things we take for granted. I am thankful for these things, as well, plus a slew of other things. It pays to step back and think about things we are grateful for. Happy Thursday!

  11. Invisibly Me says:

    So true on freedom of religion and, at least to some degrees, freedom of speech, of choice, of dress, etc. That should never be abused or taken for granted. And yes, I’m incredibly thankful I can read, too. I consider it a blessing to be able to write and a joy to be able to read, especially how books are a big part of my life. Are you busy reading blogs or do you have a good book on the go at the moment?
    Happy Thursday, Sandee! xx

    That traveling around the world from a comfy armchair is divine, isn’t it? So much which to be grateful especially these days where pandemic life lends itself to it. Thanks for sharing and loving Blogville’s pets. πŸ’™

    I also enjoy reading about other people’s furbabies. It’s almost like you know them, and I always feel welcome in the pet loving community. Like I always say, furbabies bring humans together.
    Have a wonderful Thankful Thursday!

  14. Lisa says:

    I’m trying to write in a gratitude journal a few times a week. Some weeks are successful, but some (like this week) are not because by the time I remember to record my thoughts, I’m too tired!! Freedom of religion is something in which to be thankful. Did you know the country with the largest increase in Christians is….China! Yes, we Americans take such freedoms for granted and sometimes we tend to twist our “religiosity” to fit our political opinions. Wonderful list! Hope this week has been kind to you. xoxo

    Those were some great Thankfuls, Sandee, where we can fully relate to. When another furriend has left our planet, it feels like one of our own :'( That Quote is beautifulπŸ’—Pawkisses for a Happy DayπŸΎπŸ˜½πŸ’ž

  16. Jan K says:

    I’ve cried so many tears over other people’s pet losses that I’ve never even met in person. But they also bring many smiles and laughs! It’s the best thing that’s come out of blogging for me, so I’m thankful I decided to start a blog.

    • Sandee says:

      Yes they are part of the family and often cared for even better than our kids. Just saying. I think it’s because they can’t tell us what they want sometimes. πŸ™‚
