Thankful Thursday

"He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has." - Epictetus

It's time for Thankful Thursday! Last week I was at the Oregon Coast for which I was VERY thankful but didn't want to sit in the Business Center at the resort to blog. I love to sit in my favorite chair or on my bed, feet up, with a cuppa whatever beside me and blog at my leisure. Sitting upright at a desktop computer just doesn't get my creative juices flowing! I was sooo thankful that my hubby's brother and sister-in-law invited us along for the coast trip because it gave us time to enjoy them and each other!

So this week what am I thankful for...

#1...I am feeling better after a bout of the flu. Still don't have a lot of energy but I see the light at the end of the tunnel; just hope a train isn't coming! So glad I didn't get down like my hubby but even he is on the mend. This one really knocked him for a loop!

#2...I think I got the issues fixed with my blog not recognizing some of the photos in iPhoto! That one was REALLY cramping my style!!! Finally I just shut the computer down and when I booted it back up, tada, problem fixed! I hate computer problems because I am at a loss as to how to fix them.

#3...My Bible and other spiritual books to read to give me direction and hope. This is a privilege I take for granted but need to be more thankful for.

#4...I am thankful for wind today--free power! It is cloudy so if it weren't for the wind we would have had to turn on the diesel generator to do laundry, run the dishwasher and vacuum. Our wind generator humming away is music to my ears:)

#5...Hubby is paying bills today and I am thankful that he does it and not me. I am also thankful to have the money to pay the bills! I was concerned when I quit working nearly three years ago that we would be able to live on one income but it has worked out just fine. I thank the Lord and my frugal husband for that:)

Well, that's it for my Thankful Thursday this week!

What are you most thankful for this week?



  1. I was very thankful that the part for our freezer was only $5.00 instead of a whole new freezer. Also thankful I sold my other stove to put the money towards the new one. Really there is lots to be thankful for every day. Happy to hear you are feeling better Kat. xx

    1. Those are definitely things to be thankful for! You are one of the most thankful people I "know"! I am thankful for our new friendship:)

  2. Some great things to be thankful for. I'm thankful that you're finally feeling better :)
