Thankful Thursday




Thankful this Thursday for so many things....how can I choose just one?!  Let's see, kind words about my children from wonderful people, exceptional coworkers, dogs who like to snuggle, and a life that I enjoy.  

Can I say that I am thankful for a home, that is safe and dry?!  In the wake of the Hurricane Harvey tragedy, I know that I am fortunate.  I have friends in Houston and they are safe...and dry.  Thankful, I am!!

    1. We are experiencing the, "great divide", here in the U.S., unfortunately. Both sides of our political forum need to come together.

  6. Indeed, many things to be thankful for - especially dry homes and safe streets. Our hearts are with those who are suffering from Hurricane Harvey. One great way to be thankful is to donate what we can to help those who need it most. Hope your weekend is wonderful.

  9. I'm glad life is good and you are safe and sound in your country home. I can say ditto. I also have Texas family that I've checked on and they are safe. We've donated twice now to Red Cross and may do so again. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  15. Hmm, that's pretty green grass on the other side of the fence there Michelle. I'm thankful for no flooding here as well. I'm happy I found another pool to use while my fitness center is closed for cleaning and I'm thankful for the big juicy burger I'm about to flip over.

  22. I read this after reading your later post about the damage that Harvey inflicted on your house. I suspect that your message would still be the same . . . you have a happy life and a bit of (insured) water damage is not going to change that greatly.
