Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for for kind words.  Words from friends, co-workers, clerks, etc....  It really doesn't matter.  When someone offers a moment of their time to check on your well being, to ask where you have been, or how your parents are doing, it means a lot.  It's those words that let you know you are thought of, even if you feel like you aren't.  

What are you thankful for today?  Link up and let me know!  Everything is important, relevant, and meaningful.

  2. Dear Michelle,
    Your photo is beautiful. Looks cold and crisp.
    The coldest wave is passing over Japan, but snow has not come here in my place.
    Thank you for your host and I am glad to join you again.
    Happy Thursday to you!

    I am thankful today that one more closet is cleaned, and bags and boxes of things are ready to be taken to Every Woman’s Place, Rescue Mission, Goodwill . . .

    Thankful for my friends energy to put on a Soup, Salad evening tonight for

  6. One thing I am always thankful for is my health. I can still move around albeit with a few aches and pains. It is also a good reminder to get up off this chair and move around some more.

  8. Love the old faded red home propped up on those big old stones!
    Words of encouragement mean so much and can be offered freely at any time - we just have to take the time to care! Thanks for hosting Michelle!

  9. What you've written fits so perfectly in what I was thinking this morning. We can all make a difference when we 'use our words'....as the teachers always say to us. Enjoy your day sweet lady! Hugs, Diane

  13. oh yes. That's so true, the connections between us can take us by surprise sometimes. It's why we reach out isn't it? That magical connection that makes us feel less alone. You are not alone.

    1. Whenever I see an old building like this, I cannot help but wonder what happened; who built it and who lived there and what were they like and what led to the deterioration of this structure. And I'm thankful that I have a decent home in which to live.

  15. Glad to see your Thankful Thursday is growing!! I know now from experience that is harder in rural areas to find the right images at times. The red barn is lovely! Am thankful for my son visiting from the Netherlands this week!

  18. Well we've had a couple of really ugly storms recently and my snowblower actually started and my back was saved from shoveling the long driveway and Mrs. T. carved a path to the bird feeder helping me to avoid any further vertigo induced falls. Yup, I'm really thankful this Thursday...:)

  23. Dearest Michelle; OMG!!! So sorry that I had linked my posts without words of "thankful". I apologize my bad manners from the bottom of my heart.
    Let me say my thankful thoughts for your link and kind comments, Dearest Michelle.
    And related with my link; I'm thankful for my husband's lady ex-colleagues' kindness showing their talent even at our house before as well.
    On Friday, we had a piled snow (maybe only this time this season).
    I felt thankful seeing able to see snow but my husband didn't feel that way as he had an appointment to go out p:-)
    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend, xoxo Miyako*
