Thankful Thursday: a gift dull, shimmering and cleaned

A gift dull, shimmering and cleaned

1. It’s a little hard to find something “dull” that I am actually thankful for.  I did however find something that was dull, and at this very moment I was thankful that it was turned upside down and on the ground!

It was very hard to be thankful for this, at least for me anyway.  I guess the golfers are probably the only ones that are truly thankful for this. 🙂

2.  I found myself in complete awe on this day…..surrounded by God’s handiwork.  The setting sun, the light shimmering on the sand and the water…the opportunity to live so close and see this beauty is a gift I am so very thankful for.

3.  And…I am so thankful for this…the rain that has finally come today to clean the air, feed the plants and the grass, and give us the water that we so desperately need.

These are just a few of the many things that I am thankful for today. It’s important to stop…take a moment…and reflect on the good things in life.

Will you join me in counting the blessings on your journey through life?

Gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” ~ G. K. Chesterton
