Thankful Thursdays

I am thankful for a loving husband and the fresh squeezed OJ he made for me this morning. And that he stayed awake after working all night so I could get more rest.

I am thankful my illness, as horrible as it was last night, seems to be gone today.

I am thankful for being able to grow our own vegetables.

I am thankful for the birds singing at the start of my day.

I am thankful (and still amazed) at having the ability to nourish my sweet baby.

I am thankful for an eight week old baby that sleeps almost all night.

I am thankful for my organic fair trade coffee.

I am thankful for two older sons playing together so well in the tent out in the yard.
(Ok, that lasted as long as it took me to type this, now someone is yelling about a light saber. They do play well together *most* of the time :)

I am thankful for a few dozen parks and playgrounds within a 30 minute drive.

I think I will make Thursdays my day of thanks. I don't know if this is a blog thing, like Wordless or Wash Wednesdays or {This Moment} on I won't take credit for it :) I also think I would like a day of un-gratitude. That seems pretty negative, especially for me, as I strive to lead a positive outlook on life, but there are a lot of things in this world I am not thankful for. It's all about balance :)

I decided a few times last week, blogging was not for me. I get incredible writers block and usually have no idea what to write about and when I do, I have trouble putting my thoughts into words. I tend to go off on tangents and be well, scatterbrained in my writing. I worry too much about offending or boring any readers I might have, lol, if anyone actually reads my blog. But I will continue to blog, if only for self enjoyment.


  1. i love the idea of thankful thursdays! i may have to join you in this one!

  2. i love ur blogs :) and u know when u get writers block, just post a pic LOL id o that all the time!

  3. I blog for the same reason and I don't have expectations that people will read ~ its a good way to get thoughts out. Thankful Thursdays is a good start ~ you may choose to expand from there. I found you through Wash Wednesdays, a series I'm really enjoying so far. :>)


I love hearing from you! Thanks for taking a moment to comment! If you blog I will be sure to stop and visit!
