Ten Things of Thankful

After being without our internet connection and being unable to link up to the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop this past weekend, I am posting it now even though it is too late to link it to the site hosted by Kristi of Thankful Me. If you click here you should still be able to read the posts others did link. 

Weather in the 70’s  all week (great weather for beginning to replace the siding on our home and getting new windows)

Going back in time while I sorted through photos, greeting cards and letters

Questions - If you died tomorrow, what would they be left with? 
This was a note I jotted during a BYU Education Week class I took back in August of 2010. The class was titled Creating a Personal History That Will Engage Your Posterity. I came across this note during a day of purging unnecessary paperwork this last week.

Getting my StoryWorth story submitted before we lost our internet connected due to an accidental cutting of a wire during the work being done on our home

Being able to organize and file paperwork and photos, and shred, recycle, and discard other papers and having the things and services that make doing so easier, i.e. a shredder that is fast, recycling cans that can be picked up at the end of the driveway, acid-free photo boxes, big binders, and filing cabinets.

My husband who is very patient when my Type A personality shines forth more strongly at some times than others

The innate characteristics we are born with but which through our experiences and choices we can modify and improve

Singing in a choir and the feeling one has when individual voices become united as one that has the power to not only stir the hearts of those singing but also those in the audience 

Things to ponder such as mentioned by Paul as written Philippians 4:8 in the New Testament

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Moments of clarity when one is reminded of those things that matter most in this life and everything else pales in comparison
