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 had the honor of being in charge of the links for the Dr. Seuss Day celebration this past Tuesday. I gladly accepted this task and set about to make everything perfect. I didn’t come close. The comments were closed and the link to my Dr. Seuss Day post was all messed up. I was in tears trying to unravel what a mess I made. I finally succeeded. I have no idea how I made such a mess of it, but at least the links were out there for folks to link-up.
You’re wondering why I’m including this in a Thankful Thursday post? I’m thankful that I got up early and set about fixing things as quickly as I could. I’m also thankful for the kindness shown even though I dropped the ball. You all ROCK!
What are you thankful for today?

I think we’ve all been in situations like that at one time or another. You did a fine job.
I do dumb stuff often and it’s okay if it’s not a huge hop with multiple people involved. Not the time to mess up. 🙂
It seems to us that you did a great job, Miss Sandee.
I’m happy you think so, Miss Molly. Smooches. 🙂
Blogging seems so easy to most, but when you blog and you are not really tech savvy, it can bring one to tears. When links break, people can’t comment all of the sudden, or your pages don’t show up correctly, it really is hard. Thank you so much for taking on the hosting task! We didn’t notice any issues but even if we had, stuff happens. Blogging should be fun and if someone gets too uptight, that is sad. Thank you to you for being you and doing the best only you can do 🙂
Yes to all those things. I was having a time of it for a bit. That’s all I can do is do the best I can do. That’s all any of us can do. 🙂
you must have fixed it before i got there, i did not know you messed up. join the club with me, been there done that to many times to cound and thanks for doing it.
I’m happy about that, Sandra. It was a mess for a bit. 🙂
Awww you did FINE!! I noticed the comment thing but I kept checking throughout the day and came back when it was fixed. You didn’t do anything wrong!! You are always such a support to all of us, be kind to yourself!! We all love you! xoxo
I’m glad you checked back. I’m glad for all those that did. I love you back. Scritches to the furbabes. 🙂
Well we thought everything looked wonderful and beautiful, it all worked just right!!! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
I’m happy you think so, Brian.
Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. 🙂
We’ve all been there, Sandee! “stuff” happens! Happy Thursday!
You’re right, stuff happens, but what a day for it to go so wrong. 🙂
Sandee- you are the best!!!! I have been so busy this week I have not posted since MOnday! See ya on Feline Friday! xoxoxo
Thanks, Kathe. You post when you post. You have to do what you have to do. Love you. 🙂
What a nice thankful. Just to let you know… We had a FABULOUS Seuss Day! You ROCKED and thanks so very much. It was an honor to be a co-host with friends and have such a super way for us all to Hop along. Thanks for all the great hops you have we have fun at them all
You were a wonderful host too. Thank you for all you do. Thank you for the kind words. 🙂
I’m sorry you felt stressed to tears. ~hugs~ You rock, for sure, my dear. 🙂
It was pretty awful and then trying to figure out what I did wrong and fix it. 🙂
You got an :F: for your Seuss work. You’ll always get an A+ from me.
Aw, you’re so sweet, Kismet. I love you bunches. 🙂
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Sandee absolutely don’t worry about it…bless your heart. I understand though ’cause techie stuff is just that stuff and all screwed up sometimes. I only had one attempt at leaving a comment but then it worked okey dokey
I am thankful for YOU for stepping up to take on the linky issue…it can be a grizzly bear sometimes. I’m sorry your day started out with so much stress!!
The stress didn’t last long, but it was awful while it was here. I’m just glad I got up early. Hugs back. 🙂
I’m thankful for your Dr. Seuss post! <3 I visited a few of the participating blogs and appreciate so many bloggers honoring The Good Doctor in a year when Reading Across America has gotten little positive attention. Hip, Hip Hooray for Dr. Seuss and all his fans!
It’s such a worthy day to celebrate a great man. 🙂
I think we are always surprised at the grace shown us by others when we “mess up.” We are usually harder on ourselves than we are on others, or than others are on us. If it’s any help, I didn’t even notice! Thanks for being willing to do all that you do.
You’re right, I can be pretty hard on myself over the simplest things. It was just that so many were depending on me to get the links right. 🙂
Sandee! You rock! Seuss Day was magnificent. Things happen and we never would have known! Sending you virtual hugs and strength! I hope you get to go boating and enjoy the weekend! Have a marvellously Happy Day!
Many did know though. I’m okay now, but when you’re asked to help in some way and it fails it leaves you feeling pretty badly. Smooches to Marv. 🙂
You could have fooledc me that anything went wrong. You always do a top notch job, Sandee. I suspect foul play by gremlins. 😄
I didn’t that morning, but straightened it out finally. It could have been foul play. I hadn’t thought about that. 🙂
In all things there is a reason to be thankful.
Yes indeed. 🙂
I’m sorry it caused you so much trouble but it all worked out perfectly in the end!
It did in the end indeed, but a rough start. All past me now. 🙂
I am thankful you hosted Dr. Seuss Day. It was a lot of fun. XO
It was a lot of fun indeed and even more fun once I got things working right. 🙂
The best things in life take the most work. Your Dr. Seuss post rocked.
Thank you so much. I felt deflated for a bit, but got it back on track. 🙂
You’re a gem of a friend. You work so hard to help everyone have a good time. Thanks for all you do. I love your stories of Little Bit and all the sweet comments you leave everywhere you go. You are such an amazing and kind heart. I am going to stowaway on your boat one day sh………don’t tell the others. (wink wink)
You’re welcome on our boat anytime you want to show up. Love you, Anne. 🙂
Actually, it was a great post. Just only that I tried to comment but couldn’t find the comment box. Thankful that you finally get to set it right again. Have a wonderful thankful day!
Yes that was one of the issues I had. Somehow the comments were off. It was quite the morning. 🙂
Aw, I am glad you learned and persevered and that others were kind when things went awry. Hugs to you 🙂
They couldn’t have been kinder. Hugs back, my friend. 🙂
You did a great job. It wasn’t anything you did, technology is what fouled up. Thank you so much for all you do!
Thank you my friend. I think I’m the one that messed it up though. The question is how. Oh well, it’s water under the bridge at this point. 🙂
Hey ~ Sandee ~ I am thankful that you are you ~ mistakes we all make and biggest one is to ‘beating ourselves up’ over stuff that happens ~ Be loving and gentle with your Self as you are with others ~ We love you ~ for you ~ perfection doesn’t exist ~ right? ~ You will have to remind me someday of this too.
Lots of love and hugs from me and Angel ~ Xox
