Thankful Thursday



Thankful Thursdays are all about taking the time to appreciate all the little things that actually went right during the week. I am someone who can get flustered very easily - even when the smallest thing goes wrong. So why not focus on all the little things that went right and be grateful?

1. I'm thankful that the police checked in with Mr. Croft and determined that there is in fact a safety mechanism on his homemade guillotine. Phew! I'm also thankful that this guy has come to the attention of the police. I hope they keep an eye on him.

2. I'm thankful that I realized I have an extra week before my book club meeting. Life has been somewhat hectic around here and I was seriously doubting whether or not I would be able to read a 512 page book by next Thursday. Especially since I'm in the middle of another book right now and I hate to put it aside (I'll never remember what was happening if I were to pick it up later). Anyway, I had my dates wrong and now I have a chance to finish both books. YAY!

3. I'm thankful for my friends who are always willing to lend an ear and some great advice when I need it. And I've really needed it these past few weeks.

4. I'm thankful that my Mah Jong group was able to meet on Tuesday night. We hadn't been able to play for an entire month and I missed it. It was great to catch up with my Mah Jong buddies and play. I'm looking forward to playing again in a couple of weeks.

How about you? What are you thankful for this week?

You know I love this feature, Pam - still haven't gotten around to adopting it for my own blog.

I've been sick for about 5 weeks now (with a few good days sprinkled here and there), so I really appreciate the reminder to be grateful. Let's see...
I'm grateful for my husband who took yesterday off work to do stuff around the house before his trip in order to help me out.
I'm grateful to my sons who have been great about helping me with my husband out of town.
I'm very grateful that I felt well enough this weekend to enjoy Halloween and a day in NYC with my mom to see Mamma Mia.
And I'm hugely grateful to the internet and my blogging friends for keeping me sane this past month while I have been stuck on the couch - I'm especially grateful to my laptop and my wirless internet!!

And I'm grateful to you, Pam, for reminding me to count my blessings.

I'm thankful for my 6yo receiving above average on his very first report card. And for my husband arriving home safely. Most of all I am thankful for the positive mood I have been in. And just thankful for my health this week. And very grateful for my little boy who is calling on me right now so I better run.

Great way to remind ourselves of the good stuff!!! Thanks so much for sharing in my SITS day last week!
