Thankful Thursday: 3 Gifts Together

3 Gifts Together…

1. I’m thankful for these moments when I get to join my daughter and my grandson as they experience the joy and wonder of exploring new things together.

2. I’m always thankful when I see how well my flowers and the sun go together!

3. It’s a little hard to get all three of these kids looking in the same direction, at the same time, with a decent look on their face, but I sure do love it when we are all together.

It’s one of my favorite places to be, and I am so very thankful for them.

Thankful Thursday: 3 Gifts of Endings

3 Gifts of Endings….

1. I’m so thankful for the time, energy and strength to work at bringing an “ending” to this room in our house! An edition that has been well used, but was not well-built.

After many, many years of discussing the fact that we need to tear it down, there is no turning back now!

2. I’m always thankful for a happy ending to a baseball game! Opening game of the season and the Padres won! Although the season hasn’t gone quite as well as everyone had hoped for, it’s still fun, and I still enjoy the wins when they come.

Like they say…there’s always next year :)

 

3. And then there was this.

How could I not be anything but thankful for this?

A glorious ending to another day…another day to be thankful for my eyesight and the fact that I am able to actually see this beautiful sight.

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: Containers

Each little crayon is an individual container of color, just waiting to be turned into a beautiful masterpiece!

“The challenge this week… share your own vision of a container you find interesting. You can take the challenge as literally as you want — a box of chocolates, a broken bottle, your town’s water tank, an empty shell on the beach. Or go in a more figurative direction — from the skin that wraps our body to the comfort of a hug, we all constantly hold and are held by other things and other people.”
