Thankful Thursday: 3 Gifts Entwined

3 gifts entwined…to twine or twist, to be together.

1. When I think of something that “entwines” me…that I am thankful for, I am immediately drawn to my family.  The lives of these 3 people wrapped around mine…mixing and mingling and contributing to make me the person I am today.

My siblings.

All older than me, each unique in their own way, each one so very special to me.  I’m thankful for each one of them, and the way that they entwined their lives with mine. It’s true, I probably didn’t always feel this way about them when I was growing up, but as an adult, I certainly can and do appreciate their love for me, and I’m so thankful for the time I had with them.

2. I’m thankful for my very own “secret garden”, and the flowers and vines that grow in it.  Twisting and turning, entwined around fences and trees, bringing something beautiful to brighten my day.

3. Unique and cherished…entwined by love…these 4 lives have touched my heart in a way I never imagined possible. My husband, and my 3 grandchildren.

Each one of them has crawled right into my heart and entwined themselves around every inch of it!

I love them so much, and I’m thankful for each and every moment I get to spend with them.

They are my life!


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?

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.” ~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer
