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: 3 Gifts of Change

3 Gifts of Change:

1. I know they look cool and are fun to look at, but I must say, I am very thankful for the change in our transportation.

2.  It really wasn’t that long ago, and we were watching movies by using one of these! A change in the entertainment industry that we are probably all thankful for!

3. And this, well, it’s just a personal favorite. I’m thankful for the change from dusk to dawn.

These are just a few of the many things that I am thankful for.

What are you thankful for?

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

Gratitude doesn’t change the scenery.  It merely washes clean the glass you look through so you can clearly see the colors.
