Thankful Thursday: A gift salty, sweet, just right

A gift salty, sweet, just right…

1. The salty ocean offers moments of wonder and awe. I never get tired of this view!

2. Sweet homemade ice cream! Plain vanilla this time – but oh so tasty!

3. Hanging out with my best friend is a gift that is always just right for me!

What about you?

There are a lot of bad things in this world, but there are a lot of good things too. I would love to hear more about the good things.

Will you join me in looking for these gifts and sharing them with others?

This weeks theme is “A gift salty, sweet, just right.

Write about the 3 things you are thankful for to go with this weeks theme, (with or without pictures) – and make sure to include the link to your blog.

Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.
~Henry VanDyke

I hope you have a wonderful “Thankful Thursday!”

    I love that view too! But at the moment the only thing I can think of that is “salty” is pop-corn. The “sweet” is my beautiful, caring daughter, and “just right” – my joy filled life!

      Popcorn was one of the first things that I thought of too! :). And, life is always better when it’s lived with joy in it! Thanks for sharing your “thankful” thoughts!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Clicked over from Ann’s Multitude Mondays where I wrote about this being Holy Week and Passover, and how thankful I am. There’s Salty and Sweet in the Seder meal which I am serving on Thursday this year, just before the evening Maundy Thursday service at our NALC Lutheran church plant at Westmont College. Are you near Santa Barbara? You’re welcome to join us!

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting! The Seder meal sounds fascinating. Thank you for the invitation, but I live in San Diego. It really is a small world though, because my daughter and her family live in SB, and she went to school and graduated from Westmont, and now she works there! It’s a beautiful part of the world, that’s for sure! I hope your service goes well – I’m looking forward to reading more about it.

      • Thank you Becky! I wondered, from your picture, where you live. My husband has been teaching at Westmont since 2008. Probably your daughter was there before then? Thank you.

        • Becky says:

          She graduated in 2005 – what does your husband teach? We think that Westmont is a pretty amazing place! I hope you and your family think so too πŸ™‚

          • Yes, we are loving living and working here. My husband teaches the required Christian Doctrine course, along with Telford Work and Kurt Whiteman. Other courses too, in the RS department. What was your daughter’s major, and what is she doing now?

  5. Becky,

    Nice to meet you. I’m hopping over from Ann’s link up to count gifts. Salty sea, fresh home-made ice cream, and friend times…. ahhh. Nice!

    Have a great week.
