Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that I got to watch the 4th season of House of Cards.

If you’ve not watched it and you have Netflix, please treat yourself to a great series.

I love this show!

Love House of Cards theme song.

I’m thankful that we had lots of rain this week. We had a dry spell where spring showed up for several weeks. It’s good to get back to the wet weather for a bit.

I’m thankful that hubby got through a couple of rough spots this last couple of weeks. He lost his sister one week and then the day after she was buried her daughter died. It’s been very trying to say the least. They were both ill for a long time, but you never quite prepare for someone’s death.

I’m thankful that hubbies mother turned 96 this past Tuesday. She’s frail and tired. We helped her celebrate her birthday. On Wednesday evening she was admitted to the hospital. Prognosis is not good. It’s as if she’s given up since her daughter died. We’ve not told her that her granddaughter has died as we’re afraid it will be too much for her. The cruise we had planned for this weekend has been cancelled. Life happens when you plan for other things.

What are you thankful for today?

    Yikes, poor you and poor Zane. I am so sorry about all this. It is very sad when people die. I send huge hugs to both of you and so glad you are still thankful for so many things. We are just thankful to have you two in our lives.

    I'm so very sorry to hear about your losses and your mother-in-law's health issues. You're right – life does happen when you plan for other things.

    I loved the first three seasons of House of Cards, but don't have Netflix 🙁

    It's good that you recognize good things to be thankful for. I am sorry about your family's loss and health issue.
    I am a fan of Netflix myself, the way it bookmarks my shows down to the last views I have seen. I have no cable as I am too cheap to pay for that. 🙂

    Big hugs across the miles for you, hubby & family. I pray that if time decides to rest upon your mother in law, when ever it comes, it will be a peaceful respite for her & those she leaves behind.
    Hoping for sunshiny days ahead for all of you.

    I'm watching Real Housewives seasons on Hulu…so that tells you a LOT about my viewing taste! I tried to watch House of Cards but I was having a hard time getting into the first episode. Maybe I should give it another chance.

    thank goodness for your good health and we are so sorry to hear about Zane's family- that is far too much to take in all at once. Take it easy – and lots of good thoughts and best wishes for all the family.

  9. Nancy Chan says:

    So sorry to hear the sad news about your hubby's sister and niece and it must be really tough to handle both losses so close to each other. And also the failing health of your hubby's mother. May God's peace, strength and love be with you and your hubby. We can be thankful for the lives of those we love, even though they may have passed on. And also thankful for those who are around us. I am thankful for you, Sandee, for your entertaining posts and very encouraging comments on my blog too! Thank you, Sandee!

    Life indeed does have a way of changing our plans. Sorry to hear about the losses in your family. We have reached the age when these events occur more often than we care to acknowledge.
    On a brighter note, I am thankful for digital photography. I have always enjoyed photography, but digital has changed everything. I can take as many photos as I like, process the best ones in PhotoShop and share them with the world. This is so much better than film and the dark ages of the dark room (which I never tried to do).

      Hubby and I talked about reaching an age when this happens so often. It's the circle of life.

      I do enjoy your photography and I agree about digital photography. 🙂

    Oh honey, that is just too much loss at one time. Please feel my prayers and hugs for you both at this difficult time, especially since it seems there is another funeral in the near future. Breathe…and know that Spring and good things are coming.

    Much love to you and Zane, today and always…
