Ten Things of Thankful

There are still things for which to be thankful, even though there are concerns shared by many as we are still seeing a rise in the number of cases of COVID-19 in our nation and in the state in which I live this July 4 weekend. My wish is that each of you are safe wherever you are and that you are still able to recognize some of the blessings in your lives. I am linking up my list of 10 to the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop hosted by Kristi of Thankful Me.

1. Being in the right place at the right time

2. Knowing when to stop

3. Being able to see colors

4. Playful antics of six little fawns that appeared together near our home one evening this week

5. Impressions that come into my mind to pray for someone right then, even though I don”t know the reason why

6. Saved research notes received from other family historians

7. Having bodies that have joints so we can bend

8. The sound of a flute

10. Vic and our extended family

  1. Nice list! Hope you have a great week!

  2. well... this will be weird (yeah, I know, like that ever happens) but as I read your TToT I was getting song titles popping up. But, as such things go, I noticed and started thinking about it and, there when my list.
    (I got this far):
    1 Doctor John (no title necessary, your Item is the title)
    2 Meatloaf 'Paradise by the Dashboard Light(actually your Item was one line, towards the end of the song.
    3 Cyndi Lauper 'True Colors'
    ...started to think.
    btw, if you're thinking number 10 might be the tune played by the Pied Piper in the tv version of the tale, good luck finding it on youtube... v difficult.

    1. HaHa. You really sent me on an errand this time to music I was out of my league. Kind of like doing a Sudoku puzzle that is one level higher than one's mind is ready to tackle.

  3. OK, I promise I didn't read Clark's comment first. Your #7 brought songs to my mind.
    (Actually, "Elbows and Knees" sung by Kermit came to mind first, but I couldn't find a video of it.)

    1. That is funny. Okay, I missed knowing about this song too. That is what happens when there was no TV and our kids were way past watching Sesame Street age. But hey I'm getting close to entering my second childhood, so this was totally enjoyable.
