Thankful Thursday: A Gift in wind, water, and white

A Gift in wind, water and white:

1. I’m thankful for the flags blowing in the wind. Especially the one in the middle!

2. There’s nothing quite like stepping in the cool sand and dipping your toes in the water at the ocean. I’m thankful for the moments that I spend here, relaxing and enjoying this beautiful place.

3. An awe-inspiring moment, and I’m so thankful that I just happened to be outside at the time that these white clouds did this cool thing! I think the picture is pretty amazing, but to experience it in person was so much better!

It was like I was surrounded by white cotton balls!

Amazing!

I am so thankful for all of these things, and oh so much more! In this crazy, messed up world, there are still a lot of good things to be thankful for, don’t forget to take a moment, look around, and find at least one thing to be thankful for today!

Thankful Thursday: A Gift baked, stirred, eaten

A Gift baked…stirred…eaten…

1. Baked – fresh baked bread, straight from the oven goodness!

3. Eaten – all by herself! A chocolate ice cream cone from Dairy Queen!

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?

We pray for the big things and forget to give thanks for the ordinary, small (and yet really not small) gifts.
