Thankful Thursday – 3 Gifts Flourishing

3 Gifts Flourishing…

flourishing“: developing rapidly and successfully; thriving

1. Last week I took a much-needed break and went to the beach and just sat and stared at the ocean. I was inspired by the flourishing sights, sounds, and smells…I’m so thankful for this gift and the restoration it brought to my soul.

2. Well, for now, I’m thankful that the Charger’s are “flourishing.  I hope they can keep this up!

3. And then there’s these guys…I’m thankful for their good health, and that their little bodies are growing and flourishing.  It seems to me that they are indeed, the pure essence of flourishing.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a “Thankful Thursday” – not because I haven’t been “Thankful”, more because I just haven’t done it!

But I’m back, and these are just a few of the many things that I am so very thankful for on this Thankful Thursday.

Have you looked for something to be thankful for today?

Go ahead, give it a try…I think you’ll be glad you did.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

We were reminded again this weekend of the much-needed requirement of endurance when spending time with a busy, busy three-year old!

My great-niece came to visit us this week-end, and I’m pretty sure she has more energy in that cute little body of hers than all 3 of my grandchildren combined!

While at the park, she challenged her Great Grandma to go down the slide with her….

Great Grandma will be 79 on October 11th….now that’s what I call endurance! :)

Celebrating the moments and enjoying the memories! Way to go Great Grandma!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity – Take 2!

I thought I would give this one a second try. I usually only do one entry a week for the photo challenge, but I was a little disappointed by my attempt at it yesterday, so I decided to try one more time.

I think I was a little more successful at portraying the true meaning of the word “humanity” this time around.

Enjoy….

Once again, thanks to thirdeyemom for the great challenge this week. It certainly put my brain cells to work!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity

Ok….I was determined to post a picture this week for the photo challenge because I’ve been slacking off on this lately, but I just can’t find a good picture!

I’ve been searching and searching and I just can’t find one.

You see, I usually don’t take pictures of random people.  I just don’t feel comfortable asking, and I still haven’t figured out the technique of taking a picture on the “down low”.

I almost gave up on the whole thing and was going to wait for the next challenge, but then I decided I would do something a little different.  Because sometimes, different is just fun.

And this is what I came up with.

Breakfast that should probably not be consumed by all or any of humanity!!

Sorry I don’t have a picture of this, but seriously, who eats this for breakfast?!

breakfast?

Dessert, well maybe, but not for breakfast. :)

Hopefully, I will do much better on the next challenge.  I know that there are a lot of great photos out there on this current challenge, so go ahead, take a look…they won’t disappoint you!

Wordless Wednesday: Celebrating 34 years together!

Happy Anniversary!
