Thankful Thursday: A gift in sky, water, memory

A gift in sky, water, memory:

1. The little moon in the big sky. The little plane in the big sky.

2. The amazing colors of the water.

3. The memory of her reading for hours and hours, a favorite past-time of hers still to this day.

I am thankful.

I am thankful for eyes to see the beauty of the water.  I’m thankful for clarity of mind to remember the special moments of my daughter’s childhood days. And I am thankful for the opportunity to experience new things and fly to places I have never been before.

A simple list of “thanks” today, but the value of these gifts goes beyond anything I could have ever imagined.

This is my Thankful Thursday.

Thankful Thursday: A gift in sky, water, and memory

A gift in sky, water, and memory:

1. I’m so thankful for the gift of the clouds in the sky! I love a clear blue sky, but those clouds…they always seem to capture my attention. I love the different shapes and textures, colors and designs, it truly is art in motion.

2. Another mesmerizing view…the big blue ocean. There are many moments when I find myself staring out onto this beautiful body of water, and I think to myself…I live here!

Yes! I am very thankful for this.

3. A moment I will never forget, turned into a memory I will always treasure. The beauty and the bliss of sitting at The Beach Bar in Guam, just watching the waves go by. I am very thankful for the opportunity to visit this amazing place, and certainly wouldn’t mind going back to this view.
