Thankful Thursday

Welcome to Thankful Thursday! I started out today thinking of things I wasn't thankful for and thought about doing an Unthankful Thursday but that just wouldn't be right! So, instead I decided to make myself a new Thankful Thursday button and see if I couldn't get a little thankfulness going on! 

So, today I am thankful for...

#1...My husband working away from home today:) He is a wonderful husband and works really hard to provide for us but he often works from home. Most weeks he will be gone two or three days but this week he was home EVERY DAY until today! Just a little too much husband if you know what I mean. So he and I were both happy he had to work away today! But, oh so thankful he has a good job!

#2...All the little things:

  • Household appliances that work
  • Toilet paper--you may think I am trying to be funny but I take toilet paper very serious; just ask my husband!
  • The new laundry detergent we are using that only takes 1 Tablespoon per load and is natural--Charlie's Soap!
  • Books to read--lots of them!
You get the idea!

#3...That we can worship God freely. In some countries that is not possible. I can't imagine being fearful about worshipping God. I frequently take this liberty for granted but need to be more mindful of it every day.

#4...Flowers:) Our daffodils, tulips and hyacinths are up and budding which means it won't be long before they start blooming. The lilacs won't be far behind and the world will be beautiful again!

#5...Inspiration! Everywhere you look there is inspiration! I am inspired by other bloggers; by nature; by books, etc. The other day I was inspired by a livingroom decor color combo--to use on a card! Looking out my front window I have a view of wheat fields greening up and Mount Hood in the distance--breathtaking!

I guess I had a few things to be thankful for after all--even if I was a bit grumpy and unthankful this morning! Now it's your turn! 

What are you thankful for? What inspires you?

Have a great day!



  1. These are some beautiful things to be grateful for! I hope to get a tax return too, so I can buy the stove to replace the appliance that doesn't work properly right now :)

    1. Oh Lena, I hope you are able to get your new stove soon! I got mine last year after having to prop my oven door closed for at least a year! Like my new one so much better! Thank you for stopping by.
