Thankful Thursday: 3 gifts nailed together

3 gifts nailed together…

1.  I’m thankful for the people, whoever they were, who took the time, effort and energy to build this amazing play structure. They nailed together an amazing place for children to release some energy, and have some good old fashion fun! Just a few blocks from my daughter’s house, it’s a wonderful adventure for our grandson, and a perfect platform for fun!

2. I’m thankful for the mind (and the man), who came up with the idea to take a rather mundane area of our backyard, and turn it into a beautiful oasis of our very own. A project that was nailed together several years ago, and has provided endless hours of enjoyment and relaxation.

My Secret Garden

3. And if that weren’t enough…this guy is also working on nailing together an enclosed garden for us! It’s just the beginning, but if it turns out anything like the deck, I know it will be grand.

These are just a few of the things that I am thankful for today. There are so many more, but I’ll save them for another day.

I hope you have a wonderful “Thankful Thursday”!

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.

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?
