Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for school officials who care about our students.  With the polar vortex providing below zero wind chills, our school system closed and I couldn't be more thankful.  Yes, there are students who come to school well dressed and have caring parents who make sure they don't wait outside for the bus.  However, we have so many students who do not have that kind of situation.  Kentucky's governor chastised school, this week, for being too soft during these times.  Maybe he doesn't understand that the decision is for the student's well being, not necessarily the adults.  


What are you thankful for this Thursday?  Let us all know, won't you?

  1. We can never take the comforts of home for granted. There are many people even today who cannot afford to have heating in their homes and that is a tragedy in this day and age. Stay safe!!

  2. Really like the photo!
    Not knowing anything about your governor, there are probably not any elected officials (at the state level or higher) whose children have to stand out in the cold to catch the school bus, so they are clueless about how ordinary people live.

    1. Lea, I think clueless is a good word to describe my governor, and many elected officials.

  3. Hello, love the cute pup! I am glad the schools are closed due to the cold weather. It is awful for the children to be waiting outside for the school buses to come. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day. Have a great weekend ahead.

  4. Your governor doesn’t have a lick of sense. (I liked your previous post, as you’ve guessed. Where I grew up, in the Pacific Northwest, by the way, people would have said “don’t’ instead of ‘doesn’t,’ but I couldnt make myself write that somehow.). Anyway he doesn’t or he don’t. And thank The good Lord for local educators who do. ... I had to go google KEntuckys governor and without further comment I’ll just say I guessed right on his political party. ... Thank you for posting and hosting. Stay warm.

    1. Sallie, he doesn't have a lick of sense. I didn't vote for him the first time and I hope he doesn't get reelected.

  5. Yes, so glad your kids can stay out of the cold...especially those who don't have proper winter clothing and have to stand at a bus stop for thirty minutes! It was a good decision by the school board!

  7. Safety provision for everyone is indeed a matter to be thankful for. Stay safe and enjoy tea, coffee and hot chocolate drinks during these freezing days.
    I'm also thankful for having seen the amazing lunar eclipse, which is my blog entry is all about.

  14. Today I'm thankful for a sunny day even though we did have a high of 4 degrees.

  15. At least the sensible adults understand the safety kids need in this kind of weather and closed the schools. The governor is clueless and foolish in making that statement.

  16. Sad what your governor said. It reminded me of this past November and we had the wildfires going on and the smoke just hovered over the Bay Area and school was canceled due to poor air quality. Some questioned it. We need to listen to the people who make sense. Hope it warms up. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.

  18. Well I'm glad they closed the schools too. I probably would have kept my kids home in that weather anyway!
