Thankful Thursdays

I've been trying to train my attitude. Anyone else? Cranky complainers are just not fun to be around and I certainly don't want to be a lifetime member of that club. Oh, I can snipe with the best of them, but what a drag. Not only for those subjected to the comments, but for the complainer as well. My southern momma used to say that was just "being ugly." Next thing you know, you feel weighed down and washed out.

So, I've decided to find things to be thankful for. It's really pretty easy. And it's becoming a habit that lifts my spirit, makes me smile and opens my day for good things. There are days when I'm thankful for BIG things in my life. We all have those. Healings, miracles, job offers, sales of houses, etc. But, most days, it's the little things that I'm noticing more.

I'm going to try to share a few of those little things with you blog readers on Thursdays. Feel free to chime in and add a few of your own. You might catch yourself smiling!

Today I'm thankful for:

A free Mocha Frap from Stabucks for my birthday!! Yum!

This cute sign to welcome Spring in my hall bathroom.

Our adorable pal, Woody, who gazes out the window while we eat supper. (Such a good pooch!)
And this tiny silver box that a friend gave me years ago. Just big enough to hold a dainty necklace. (I love the butterfly perched on top.)

Ok - Your Turn!


  1. Successful outcomes on a job well done
    Coffee every morning is a comfort
    Crisp air outside wakes me up from the inside
    Memory- not just my memories...but the ability to have memory

  2. My Puppies (even though they're still in blob stage).
    My boys that are growing up before my eyes.
    My daughter that greeted me with "good morning mommy" with a smile.
    And my hubby who took a week off work just to do things around the house.
    Thankful for you too Wendie...just what I needed to hear this morning!

  3. I'm thankful for:
    1. Pad Thai leftovers
    2. Warm Sweaters on cold April days
    3. Netflix on my Iphone
    4. Being a girl so I can wear fun accesories!
    5. A mom who blogs. :)

  4. Morning Coffee
    My Good Book
    "Mornin" from my honey
