Thankful Thursday

My Thursday is quickly coming to an end and I haven’t found the time to write down my thankful thoughts.  I am grateful that, really, there is always something for which to be thankful. But sometimes those things just jump out to you in a way that makes you realize, I am so blessed by this.   Here are three of those events given to me in the past week. 


Time with my Mom and Sister is always a blessing.  Saturday was the Ladies Luncheon at my church and its kind of a tradition that we always go together.  With our busy schedules we just don’t get to sit and talk much.  So while we had a nice time at the Luncheon, we then hit a Starbucks on the way home and enjoyed uninterrupted talk and coffee!  I’m not sure we had dessert at the Luncheon, but that time of sharing was sure sweet!


These purple flowers are part of a long row of lilacs that line the end of the tennis courts.  Every morning I take a minute or two and look at them from our balcony.  There are many lilacs around the grounds and they smell so heavenly!  I even cut me a nice bunch for my table…


One of the things that I knew I was going to miss when we moved was my flowerbeds, and garden…especially in the spring when everything is blooming.  But this week I got to do some digging.  I have a patch of dirt I get to plant!  So here are some columbines, daisies, pansies, and lupines I bought just to get things going!


What makes me so thankful for these three things this week is not that they are great events to marvel at.  They are simple, but they are things that I love and have been missing.  The Lord knows this and just reminded me of His love and goodness to me personally when He presented them to me!  And for that I am truly blessed and say “thank you”.

What a great picture of you three lovely ladies! I printed it off for Marty to have. I love that your mom is going with "natural" look for her hair. She's very pretty with it. Take care! Patti
