Thankful Thursday – 3 Gifts Flourishing

3 Gifts Flourishing…

flourishing“: developing rapidly and successfully; thriving

1. Last week I took a much-needed break and went to the beach and just sat and stared at the ocean. I was inspired by the flourishing sights, sounds, and smells…I’m so thankful for this gift and the restoration it brought to my soul.

2. Well, for now, I’m thankful that the Charger’s are “flourishing.  I hope they can keep this up!

3. And then there’s these guys…I’m thankful for their good health, and that their little bodies are growing and flourishing.  It seems to me that they are indeed, the pure essence of flourishing.

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a “Thankful Thursday” – not because I haven’t been “Thankful”, more because I just haven’t done it!

But I’m back, and these are just a few of the many things that I am so very thankful for on this Thankful Thursday.

Have you looked for something to be thankful for today?

Go ahead, give it a try…I think you’ll be glad you did.

Thankful Thursday: 3 Gifts of Endings

3 Gifts of Endings….

1. I’m so thankful for the time, energy and strength to work at bringing an “ending” to this room in our house! An edition that has been well used, but was not well-built.

After many, many years of discussing the fact that we need to tear it down, there is no turning back now!

2. I’m always thankful for a happy ending to a baseball game! Opening game of the season and the Padres won! Although the season hasn’t gone quite as well as everyone had hoped for, it’s still fun, and I still enjoy the wins when they come.

Like they say…there’s always next year 🙂

 

3. And then there was this.

How could I not be anything but thankful for this?

A glorious ending to another day…another day to be thankful for my eyesight and the fact that I am able to actually see this beautiful sight.

These are just a few of the many things that I am so very thankful for on this Thankful Thursday.
