1. I received this “unexpected gift” for Mother’s Day, it’s a San Diego Padres flag, and I love it! I’m so thankful for my daughter and her thoughtfulness when it comes to gift giving. It fits perfectly in my garden, and she knew that it would!
2. My one and only granddaughter…her birthday was not unexpected, nor was it a surprise, but being invited to celebrate her special day with her was very unexpected, and for this, I am so very thankful.
3. What makes a game winning baseball game even better? The gift of an unexpected fireworks show after the win! It was spectacular, and fun, and yes, even something as silly as fireworks can be something to be thankful for!
That’s it for this Thankful Thursday!
I hope that you will take a moment to contemplate all the “unexpected gifts” that are out there for you to be thankful for, and maybe even write down two or three of them!

Well, this is it. The last baseball game that I will be attending this season. The 2013 season for the San Diego Padres will officially be over on Sept. 29th.
It was an interesting season.
It didn’t turn out quite as I had hoped, you know, like winning the division and going on to the World Series.
But there were some good things about the season, it wasn’t all bad. In fact, for a few weeks, it seemed as though my team was going to make a run for it, and climb all the way up out of the basement, and in to first place. (As it stands right now, we are officially out of the basement, hovering at 3rd place.)
Nope. It wasn’t meant to be. Not this year. I guess this just means that they’ve left room for improvement for next year, right?!
That’s ok, I’m still a fan.
I’ll be back next year, and once again it will be with high hopes, just like I had this year.
