Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that next Monday we meet with the guy that’s going to do the next remodel of our boat. I will take before and after pictures. Lots of work this time around. New blinds on the portholes below, new canvas and screens, all new seating in the cockpit. I can’t wait. This is a huge face lift.

I’m thankful for my yacht clubs. Last Saturday night we had our holiday meal. Great attendance and it was good to see so many folks. We’d not been doing a lot because of Little Bit, so it was wonderful seeing faces that we’d not seen for a bit.

I’m thankful for central air and heat. It’s hot here in the summers and cold for a couple of months in the winter. It’s nice to be able to be comfortable.

I’m thankful that my husband is so attentive and kind. He remember things so very well. Twenty years ago today he told me he loved me for the first time. We’ll go out to dinner later today, and he’s the one that remembered this.

I’m thankful to live in modern times. We have so many conveniences that make life so much easier. I don’t want to take things like flushing toilets, dishwashers, ovens, cars and a long list of other things that make life so simple. I’ll also bet in 100 years they will look aback at these times and feel sorry we had things so rough.

I’m thankful I’m on the right side of the dirt too. We will continue to live life to the fullest.

So what are you most thankful for today?

    Can't wait to see the photos. So exciting for you!
    Your husband is so sweet. I never remember dates like that.
    At this very moment, I am thankful for the sun coming up over the horizon, giving me a gorgeous view out the window. I am also thankful for the thousands of people who have worked hard to put on a conference for Catholic youth from around the country. 25,000 teens are participating this weekend, including my daughter. Mostly I'm thankful that it's here in Indianapolis. 🙂

    What a sweet husband you have for remembering that twenty year ago moment to celebrate today.

    I am thankful to be living in a time and place where I have choices and comfort. I am thankful for my dog as well who is quirky and well loved by me and everyone who meets him.

    You (and I) have a keeper of a hubby for sure! Can't wait for the finished boat photos. I know how much you both enjoy your boating and that lifestyle.

    I am grateful my sister is coming here soon. Blessed. We all are!

    Big hugs, honey…

    Zane is one terrific guy to remember this date 20 years ago. Yay Zane. We are also very thankful to be on this side of dirt. That is important. Sandee, we sure hope you and Zane have a wonderful day and a great dinner tonight.

    Way to Go Zane. You keep treating that wonderful woman the best. I'll keep thanking everything because there are so many things that I'm thankful for but the best one that I'll always be thankful for is my beautiful, wonderful, thoughtful and caring wife, Mary Lou, She's the love of my life. She's stayed with me through thick & thin for the last 42 years. Thank you my love.
    Have a wonderful Thursday Sandee. See ya.

    Hah, the right side of the dirt! And living a wonderfully full life as well. Thanks for sharing this thankful snapshot into your life. I can't wait to see the remodel on your boat! The last one was great 🙂

    I'm always thankful for the continued good health of my family and myself, of course. This week I'm thankful knowing that both my girls will be home for Thanksgiving. That's frosting on my cake.

  8. LAC says:

    I'm thankful to be friends with someone that has such a positive view on life. A friend that continues to remind me of what is truly important in this life. Thank YOU, Sandee for being that friend.

  9. Jim says:

    You have a lot to be thankful for, Sandee. Ours will be the "back in the good old days" a hundred years from now. Effiency minded people will some day be putting one or two 'toilet and bath' stations on each block.
    The remodeling, I'm thinking it will put your boat out of commission for a bit? B-(

    Oh my- so thankful for so many things! My sweet (forgetful) husband who takes care of our home and me so thoughtfully- he may not remember some things, but he is a constant reminder of how lucky I am. I am thankful for our pesky and adorable Lucy the Cat. I am thankful that this Thanksgiving we will be in Portland having Thanksgiving with all 3 of our kids. That has not happened for many years. Have a wonderful day Sandee!

    I am ever so thankful to have grown up in what can only be described as the "Golden Age" of America, the 50's & 60's. I appreciate all of the things that we have today, but we truly had the basic things that made life easier even then. We had good cars, television, central heat & air, the telephone etc. Our lives were simply not as cluttered with "stuff" and the pressure to acquire more "stuff" didn't seem as prevalent. I don't necessarily long to return to those days, I am just thankful that they are a part of my life experience.

  12. Ann says:

    I'm thankful for blog pals who leave me comments that make me laugh like the one you left for me today. And yes, I do wish they would quit and be replaced by awesome people 🙂

  13. BeadedTail says:

    So many wonderful things to be thankful for! I'm thankful Isabella is doing better today and that we're all happy and healthy!

    Hope you and Zane enjoy your dinner Sandee!

  14. Jean(ie) says:

    Yay! I can't wait to see the transformation. Hugs! I'm glad you're getting out. I'm sure your friends miss Little Bit too. It'll help you both. I'm thankful for hubby and my family.

    Yes, it's pretty amazing to think what the world will be like in 100 years. I know everyone will have medical devices attached to them (like the Fitbit bands we wear now) that track all of their health vitals…so people will know when they have cancer or heart issues. Can't wait to see pictures of the updated boat!

  16. mail4rosey says:

    Your list is a good one. I'm thankful that my children are healthy, happy and by my side. I'm thankful for my own good health too. And I'm thankful for famliy and friends. Looking forward to seeing your boat re-do!

    Your remodel sounds exciting! I am thankful that the constant construction that has around my home is almost completed. Over 3 years of waiting for workers or repairman is almost done.
    Have a great remodel experience 💙

    Aren't husbands and modern conveniences great? I'm thankful for how both my husband and my dad encouraged me to blog and support my aspirations to write. Sending my words into the world gives me a voice. I'm thankful for our houseful of critters who make me feel needed and loved every day. Their antics bring me happiness. I'm thankful for students and especially my writing club. They push me to be a better teacher and writer. All good stuff!
