Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday – 9/9/10

A while back I had something going here called Thankful Thursday.  I discontinued it because someone else had thought of it before I did, and they pretty much had a system already going.  I didn't want to be a copy cat, so I discontinued mine and occasionally participated in theirs. 

Today I am going to do my own Thankful Thursday, and I will probably continue without creating such a todo about it.  If you would like to join in, please do.  Just let me know you are playing along by leaving a comment and I will check yours out too.

Thankful Thursday – Sept. 9, 2010

1.  I am thankful for my Otter Box.  Apparently I left my phone outside on the porch all night.  Yea, smooth move, I know.  It rained most of the night.  That is why I am so thankful for my Otter Box.

2.  I am thankful for the rain we have received!  Now I just have to decide whether to drive the pick-up today or the Jeep.  McD just washed the Jeep the other day and it is so nice and shiny I hate to mess it up.  With that being said…

3.  I am thankful for McD!  He is so good to me. 

4.  I am thankful that the dogs have decided to settle down and nap this morning.  They can be pretty rambunctious and loud. 

These all seem like minor things I know, but sometimes it is the small things we forget to be thankful for. 

5.  I am thankful for my friends and family. 

6.  I am thankful for having a jacket.  It doesn't sound like much, but when I get cold, I get miserable.  I have to go to the grocery store today and it is always cold in there.  And I did lay out my pink re-usable grocery bags, thank you very much!  (Please let me remember to take them!!)

7.  I am thankful for my readers, because without you I would have stopped doing this blog thingymajig a long time ago.  You keep me going, and for that I am thankful!

8.  I am thankful that I was able to get two loads of laundry done before 10 am this morning.  I hope to be thankful that the ironing goes just as fast this afternoon. 🙂

9.  Speaking of little things.  I am so thankful for my pillow, blanket, and comfortable bed.  It breaks my heart that not everyone has one.

After reading this list again, it seems pretty lame.  This morning I had a great post going in my mind.  I wish I could be thankful for my great memory, but I can't today.  That is why I must go and make a list for the grocery store.

While I am doing that, you should head on over to Aggie's Kitchen and enter to win a Scarlet Thread's apron.  They are too cute! I entered, you should enter too.

    Not lame at all, Julie. Very heartfelt and valid. Have a great day!

    It’s so good to be thankful for the little things. They really are blessings, even if they seem trivial. Sometimes when I’m having a really bad day (and feel like I’m being a big baby) I write down the things I’m thankful for to try to turn my thought pattern around.

    Today I am more than normally thankful for my beautiful healthy children. A neighbor lost her son two days ago. I cannot imagine her grief.

    I’m following your example and posted a Thankful Thursday on my blog too. I think it’s a great idea.
    Hope it’s ok to mention your blog and add a link cause I already did 😉

    Nobody has the corner on the market for thankfulness. I think we could use more of that going around. Your list is not lame, either. We should all be so thankful for the little things in life as well as the big things.
    Today I’m, uh, thankful that I have muscles to hurt? LOL, no I guess I’m thankful to be getting into shape and for the lesson in discipline it is. I’m also thankful that I discovered that while I’m on the eliptical is the perfect time to pray and really stay focused. I don’t know why it works for me, but it does. My mind doesn’t wander as much and I don’t doze either. Maybe it’s the repetitive motion without any obstacles. Anyway, it has been a great time to pray and actually encourages me to go to the Y more often because of the whole two birds concept. I know it’s silly, but there it is.

    It’s not lame at all! It’s the little things that are always the most important to me.
    I just did a Thankful Thursday post on my blog too. I hope it was okay to link back to your blog.

    I am trying to keep up the gratitude with my Feeling Thankful Friday posts… hope you enjoy them!
    I’m thankful for my blogging friends all across the world, too!

    I have to agree with all the other replies. Not at all lame. In fact, seeing your list of what you are thankful about just makes me want to know you more. Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18.

    I am thankful for a God who shows His tender mercies everyday, and who loves me in spite of myself.
    I am thankful for my husband who is my knight in shining armor and who I love more each day…after 36 years!
    I am thankful for my sister who also loves me in spite of myself, and is my best friend.
    I am thankful.
