      I didn’t know he had surgery. I’m glad he’s home and resting. I know you’ll take good care of him. Healing hugs coming your way. 🙂

    I love Thankful Thursday Sandee. It’s amazing how people don’t give thanks. I like them all but I especially love this one…..5 Listen to your body, it will lead you to unlimited health. After my fall last Friday, my body is really telling me many things. I’m not sure what it is telling me but I know that thank God that I’m still alive and kicking. See ya Sandee.

      I love thankful Thursday too, Paul. It’s time to focus on the good things around us. Some need to do far more of looking for the good. Have a great day, my friend. 🙂

    I think it is a wonderful idea too! Today I am thankful for a rest day from running. I have a race coming up on Saturday that I want to face with fresh legs! 🙂

    I tell myself to stop worrying about things, but it’s hard not to!
    I know lots of people are getting too much rain and flooding, but we sure could use some rain. We have a small chance in the forecast for the next day or so,thought. Hope it happens!
    Happy Thursday! <3

    That is a fabulous mantra! It’s so hard to live up to all those points, but wonderful to keep in mind as we struggle through life. There are so many things that can steal joy. I continue to have problems in that area. Hope your weekend is wonderful. Looks like spring is well on its way here….finally!!

      We just need to focus on the positive and never on the negative. Some folks can’t see anything but the negative. Sad. 🙂

    I am thankful I woke up today as always, at my age I have to be thankful for that. I am also thankful that I have a guardian Angel that gets me up on a daily basis. I hope you are having a wonderful Thankful Thursday honey. Love you bunches ❤ 🤗

      • Jody @I'm All About says:

        I so agree with you, Sandee. I mean that for real though, it seems the older I get that fear of not seeing the next day has really set in on me big time. I mean I don’t sit and stress over it, but it is there for sure. I guess I think of this more than the norm because my oldest sister passed away in her sleep, and I am happy that she passed peacefully, at least I look at it that way. Her husband said she was in the same position she was in when he had checked on her earlier that evening, so I assume that would have been the case, I like to believe that was the case. Have a beautiful sunny day honey ❤

        • Sandee says:

          I’m so sorry about your sister. Going peacefully in ones sleep is a good thing. There are so many horrible ways to go. You have a beautiful sunny day too. Love you. 🙂

    Sandee, I am totally thankful for this post. I plan to print this list and review it every day. I am usually not a complainer and can look past all the “cwap” to find the good, but it sure has been difficult lately. It was good for me to read this. Hugs, Janet

    • Sandee says:

      Yes, it’s so very easy to get swept up in the negative. I don’t want to go there either. There is so much good to focus on. Big hug back, Janet. Scritches to my buddy Sawyer. 🙂

    Great list…thanks for sharing. Reply to your comment on my blog today~ my family is fairly talented in a lot things. We have Holly in her acting. My nephew and both brothers are amazing in wood working. My older brother is very talented in business and has started several and retired from them also. I have a niece that used to show horses – Arabian horses and won many awards. She has won awards for her show dogs also. My son has a beautiful voice and sounds great with no music. And my nephew is an ex race car driver. I am very, very proud of my bunch.

    • Sandee says:

      Some families are gifted with much talent. Mine not so much. I do enjoy seeing what you and yours are up to. 🙂

    This is great list. I like the allow yourself to be a beginner. It’s easy to forget to learn something new, most often we’re going to be very bad before we’re going to get any good. Learning something new, while a pain in the butt, staves off alzheimemher’s and keeps the brain’s circuits fresher. hmmm, speaking of learning something new, I better go check on my pot before something burns

    • Sandee says:

      I love learning something new. I’m at it almost every single day. I’m getting close to 70 so it’s important to stay active both in mind and body. 🙂
