Thankful Thursday


Thankful on this Thursday for too much to do.  Yes, you read that right.  Life has been a bit busy this week, but I am thankful that I am healthy, active, and able to participate in all that my life has to offer.  That is a privilege denied to many of all ages.  

"One of the things I have learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged.  Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself."  

Lucille Ball

  1. Things have started to get busy, must be the warmer weather but that has stopped today. Keeping busy does feel good so I will just put on a heavy coat.

  9. Love Lucille Ball- she was quite a lively character, even in her old age she was still tossing zingers...Have a great day Michelle!

  11. As the old country saying in these parts goes "any day above ground is a good one"
    (nary as elegant as your words & quote I admit, lol) Every day I remind myself to love
    being where I am, at this point in the journey. Past, present and future each hold some
    magic. I hope to (one day) be (reliably) good at treasuring where I am, every day....

    Great image and post (like always!)

  16. I find that a busy life keeps you sharp and bright. I am as busy as when I was working .. here in my retirement years. But I don't want to be all dull and bland.. so I keep doing lots of things. Enjoy the weekend! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  19. Agree with your comments, too many people complain about the very thing that in an odd way they should be thankful for.
