Thankful Thursday

One of my favorite blogs is "What's New at My House."  Ma is always up-beat, faithful and I come away from reading her blog with positive thoughts. How she manages to do this every day is a wonder, but she does and I am very grateful for having found her in Blogland. Her thoughts for today centered on thankfulness and one of the ideas was to thank G-d for twenty things today before I ask for anything.

Here are my twenty -- in no particular order...

1) Ma. Thanks for all the good you send into the world.

2) Emily, my sweet audiologist.

3) My new hearing aid.

4) My kindle and the sweet people who gave it to me, Jess and K.

5) No snow today!

6) My wonderful friends in Blogland

7) Great trip and dear friend who shared it with me...
  8) Barcelona

9) Yankee win on opening day of the season!

10) Iced Coffee

11) My warm apartment

12) Spring flowers

13) My family

14) A note from my nine year-old cousin -- too cute!

15) My congregation

16) "What Not to Wear"

17) Lazy summer days on the St. Lawrence River

18) Next week's baby shower for sweet J in our office

19) Brunch and theater with friends this weekend

20) Almost the weekend!

What Not to Wear is one of my favourite shows! I'm terrified Stacy & Clinton are going to show up at my door one day!!!

Great list and I, too, love "What Not to Wear"!!! I dress better because of their tips (through TV - not personally) but they would still probably toss lots of my wardrobe.

This reminds me of my mom. She always sang "Count your blessings" as I was growing up. She's 85 and still counting :-)
Thank you so much for your prayers for my nephew Jordan. We've been so blessed by the outpouring of love here in blog land.
Blessings,
Marcia

Thank you too! I'm thankful for you and all the pictures you share of the trips to places I've never been. That was a great 20 things! I hope your Friday is a wonderful one!

Greetings, Ms. Buttercup!! Thanks for sticking with me and welcoming me back on my blog -- It is taking me FOREVER to get through emails and visiting blogs, so thanks for your patience and I'm finally here to catch up with some of your posts! For this post, you are so right... we all must be grateful for what we have, large and small. Even if a bad thing happens, I try to be grateful for it, because more often than not, there is either a lesson in it, or something good will come out of it. So I am grateful for everything in my life. Thanks for the reminder. And thanks to "Ma" too, I will have to check out her blog. Funny thing: I used to call my mother "Ma" and now my son calls me "Ma" sometimes!
Best,
Gloria

Love your list ... my favorite is family. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I very much appreciate it as I always wonder if anyone is reading my posts. I do hope to inspire and encourage others to reselling. Especially in these hard times, every penny counts (literally) and I enjoy sharing what I have learned, just like the ladies from Dear Trash inspired me. Best always, Rita
