Thankful Thursday: 3 gifts seen close up

3 gifts seen close up…

1. I’m thankful for the bees that get very close up and buzz about in my flowers

2. I’m thankful for the flowers too

3. But most of all, I’m thankful for the moments when I can be close up and right next to my very best friend!

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?

Thankful Thursday: A gift in sky, water, memory

A gift in the sky:

I’m thankful for the gift of airplanes…taking me to far away places, soaring high in the sky! (I’m also thankful that I don’t live in cold places like the one the airplane is flying over.) 🙂

A gift in water:

I’m so very thankful that this bridge was built in the water, to go over the water to take me away to one of my favorite places…Coronado Island. A respite when my soul is weary.

A gift of memory:

Oh, this is a hard one because I have so many good memories, and so many things to be thankful for.  But for this one, I’ll go back to a most recent memory… a memory I cherish and am so thankful that I was able to be a part of…this great memory when Grandpa shared his ice cream with our sweet little grandson.

A very precious gift…a very precious memory.

2. I’m thankful for the hope that I have in eternal life, and a home in heaven. This will not be my final destination!

3.  I’m thankful for the gift of each new day, and the hope that I have at the end of each day. The hope for tomorrow…a new day, and another opportunity to start over, another day to “get back up again”!
