Thankful Thursday ~ July 10

This week saw our eldest son pick up his first car. I am thankful though he has had his licence for awhile that he is able to drive. It is a very economical car.

Our daughter's extra ballet classes went well.

My Thursday blessings were:

~ nice books from the library

~ knowing what is wrong with our dog and what to expect in the future

~ good health coldwise for those in our family at home

~ thoughtful person at the Youth Centre who is prepared to cook to keep the kids going in the late afternoon

~ nice buns for lunch

~ being able to write and take pictures with the digital camera

My Sunday blessings were:

~ there was still some wood for us to collect and bring home from our usual place of collections

~ the dog still being with us and good company

~ a nice salad from our daughter's homegrown lettuces

~ putting our lights up for "Christmas" in July

~ lovely cloud formations

~ homemade pizza for lunch, I got two pieces our middle daughter made

~ warm afternoon

My Monday blessings were:

~ rain that has lasted 24 hours so far

~ more pizza homemade that my daughter made

~ hubby being able to get some of his work done for when he goes back to work after his holiday

~ a good sleep

~ getting some sweeping done and some tidying

My Wednesday blessings were:

~ a good book to read

~ a pretty day, a warm afternoon


Lots to be thankful for!

I think I need to look more on the things I have rather than the things I don't.
I like how you shard your blessing for each day! I LOVE library books.

Great list. Always better to look at our positives. Even when times are not as good, we can find things to be thankful for.

Linda ...what a complete and aMazing list for each day! That's how it should be...simple thanks for what we are blessed with each day! Love the extras for your kid's blessings: driving an economical car and extra ballet!
Library books...classic but GREAT!

I pray that your dog remains well!

Be blessed continually...and plenty of wood and food for y'all

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. At the moment I am especially grateful for the wood my husband has chopped for the fire, it is very cold.
Have a great day.

How precious it is just to be thankful for those everyday things that we often let slip pass our notice. When small things work out like a close parking space at the store I'm going into when every other one is full and finding things on sale that I didn't expect when I get in there, I am so grateful and I try to remember to thank God right then. These things seem small, but they help shape our day and our thoughts in a BIG way. I enjoyed reading your post. You seem to have a grateful heart.
