Thankful Thursday – Joining with Friends


This week is a little different..

First –

My friend Evin over at Food Good, Laundry Bad challenged a few of us with this:
24 Hours without a complaint
Uh… NO complaining? 24 hours? And I’m not in a coma but instead out in the world… and work?

Ok. Not gonna complain about that because that might make for a bad start to the challenge.

Instead I’m going to stick with how lucky I am to have a friend who challenges me often.

Part two

After a few weeks of Thankful Thursdays, I decided to get some others involved. That means that Helen over at Life In Random Bits and some of our other lovelies  are sharing this linky and challenging YOU to join us.

Don’t have a blog, no worries, leave us a comment about what you are thankful for – it can be as serious or as silly as you want. If you do blog, join in on the linky and visit some other thankful blogs in the process  🙂


On to MY thankful list:

  • I’m thankful for open and honest communication
  • I’m thankful for big hearts
  • I’m thankful that My Gramma was thoughtful enough to write out some of her memories
  • I’m thankful that some people really do have their priorities straight
  • I’m thankful that the weather, more often than not, has been conducive to the wearing of flip flops.
  • I’m thankful for time with a friend from across the pond who brought yarn and goodies
  • I’m thankful for yarn 🙂
  • I’m thankful for time with my babies – This starts my third weekend in a row plus there was spring break 🙂
  • I’m thankful that my boys are still silly even at 11 & 14 🙂
  • I’m thankful that there are always silver linings… and that being broken doesn’t mean being worthless
  • I’m thankful funny pictures that make me laugh… like this

  • I’m thankful for security.
  • I’m thankful for freedom to speak my mind.
  • I’m thankful for you.  Each and every one of you.  Always.

Now – I need to ask a favor… If you follow me around the interwebs, whether on Facebook or twitter or instagram… and you HAPPEN to see me complaining… I need you to call me out.  If we are friends who email or text… Same deal.

That said – I’m hoping each and every one of you have a Thankful Thursday and will join is in the gratitude movement.
