Thankful Thursday: A gift in sky, water, memory

A gift in sky, water, memory:

1. The little moon in the big sky. The little plane in the big sky.

2. The amazing colors of the water.

3. The memory of her reading for hours and hours, a favorite past-time of hers still to this day.

I am thankful.

I am thankful for eyes to see the beauty of the water.  I’m thankful for clarity of mind to remember the special moments of my daughter’s childhood days. And I am thankful for the opportunity to experience new things and fly to places I have never been before.

A simple list of “thanks” today, but the value of these gifts goes beyond anything I could have ever imagined.

This is my Thankful Thursday.

 

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”
― William Arthur Ward

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?

Thankful Thursday: 3 gifts behind a door

3 gifts behind a door

1.  I’m thankful for this wonderful oasis that greets me when I open the door to my backyard.

2. And when I step out my front door, get in my car and drive just about 20 minutes west of my house, I’m greeted by this glorious sight!

I’m so thankful for this breathtaking view.  It just never gets old, no matter how many times I see it.

3. I’m thankful for this door – the door to the library – any library! A door that opens up to endless adventures, information, opportunity and mystery.
