3 Gifts Unexpected
1. I received this “unexpected gift” for Mother’s Day, it’s a San Diego Padres flag, and I love it! I’m so thankful for my daughter and her thoughtfulness when it comes to gift giving. It fits perfectly in my garden, and she knew that it would!
2. My one and only granddaughter…her birthday was not unexpected, nor was it a surprise, but being invited to celebrate her special day with her was very unexpected, and for this, I am so very thankful.
3. What makes a game winning baseball game even better? The gift of an unexpected fireworks show after the win! It was spectacular, and fun, and yes, even something as silly as fireworks can be something to be thankful for!
That’s it for this Thankful Thursday!
I hope that you will take a moment to contemplate all the “unexpected gifts” that are out there for you to be thankful for, and maybe even write down two or three of them!

I’m not really much of an “early bird” when it comes to getting up in the morning. I’ve left those days behind…but apparently the critter that came to visit my yard is quite the “early bird“, and it looks like they might have gotten a few worms for breakfast too! 😦
Hopefully, you have better things than a torn up lawn to greet you in your early morning hours of the day.
Orange…is not a color I am typically drawn to.
However, it is beautiful, and bright and the world would be quite boring without it!
This was my first attempt at an enclosed garden in my backyard…and it turned out to be an achievement that I am quite proud of!
The garden is at rest right now, but I learned a lot from this adventure, and I’m really looking forward to next season.
Take a look at what the rest of the world has been up to. More amazing achievements can be found here!
