Ten Things of Thankful

Many are probably looking for some positivity about now, so here is my report. I hope you will grab a pen or a keyboard and write what is on your mind and in your heart today. You will feel a little better for doing so and by sharing maybe someone else will too. I'm linking my post to the blog hop Ten Things of Thankful  hosted by Kristi of Thankful Me. If you like, feel free to link your gratitude items on the blog hop. The more, the merrier, and speaking of merrier, click the link to read details about next week's party.

1. For those who continue to serve and protect because often they have made an oath to do so in spite of potential harm to even their very lives

2. For those who speak out  in defense of those who need to be defended

3. For those who seek to find the truth wherever it may be even when it may cause them to question what they may have once believed to be true or what they may have been taught

4. For those who contemplate possibilities of ways to improve our world and the lives of its inhabitants and are able to communicate those ideas with those who have the skills to create plans and those who have the abilities to build, manufacture, or plant and grow what is needed

5. For those who are willing to try to understand and see another person’s point of view even if it isn’t their own

6. For those who are willing to learn from mistakes, their own as well as the mistakes of others

7. For the speedy delivery of the new part for our range!

8. That the multiple loud footsteps on our roof were most likely multiple deer rather than people with ill intentions
( Occasionally we have heard light footsteps from probably a skunk or raccoon or maybe a single young deer, but not what seem to have been a herd.)

Deer treading quietly through the grass

9. That I now have a face mask that fits me perfectly
(I’ll make some improvements on the next one in regards to the ties.)

10. That feeling of happiness that comes when those you love are able to achieve their goals or when they receive answers to their prayers

*Bonus thankful - Vic and I being able to share our lives with one another all these years

May you all feel some peace in your lives this week.

  1. I wrote a comment, but before I hit publish, my internet went down. Fingers crossed it works this time. :-)
    I remember the sound of the pattering of hooves on the roof. "Up on the housetop, reindeer pause. . ."
    Your stove part arrived so quickly!

    1. The hooves seemed quieter then, but maybe there was more noise inside the house and the hooves didn't seem so loud in comparison.
      Yes, I was very impressed with how quickly the part arrived.

  2. Yay for 9!
    On number one, today I am trying to convince myself not to feel bad I am not donating to just anyone who asks or posts their requests for donation. I do some but the greatest of all, I risk my life taking care of COVID patients. Not bragging, but that is a big deal I think.

    1. That is a very big deal what you are doing! Thank you!

  3. Very proper sentiments, especially Number 5 even they effort to achieve a perspective is worthy as it unlocks the chains of 'There is only one way things must be..."
    Have a good week.

    1. Thanks Clark. If there was ever a need to unlock the chains, it is now.

  4. Thoughtful thankfuls and yay on your part!
