Ten Things of Thankful

It is time to drop a few lines of thankful, lest we least forget. No matter what the week has thrown at you, dig deep if you must, or skim a few off the top, but write them down and share them. Sometimes when others are struggling to even find one thing for which they are thankful, there may be that one thought you have shared that makes all the difference to how they proceed their course of action. You and your words do matter. I am linking up my post to the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop hosted by Dyanne of Backsies Is What There Is Not.

1. The perspective that is gained from reviewing one’s life after having written a memoir

2. The works of illustrators who help depict the works of authors

3. Words that distinctly convey the meaning intended

4. Words that offer hope

5. The variety of voices by which humanity can distinguish one another

6. Some homemade squash pie given to us by a friend one day this week

7. Only one of us in our household experienced 12 hours of intestinal distress this week

8. A 15-minute visit from my brother and a few members of his family one day this past week and being able to visit safely outside from a distance while wearing masks

9. Being  able to scan old family photos of ancestors and attach them to to galleries on online family history sites

10. Vic and our family and friends who brighten our lives

  1. Number 3!! Number three! Numéro trois*

    How satisfying to find the best words to contain a thought.**

    *still had google translate open from commenting on 'Quilting Patch's post
    ** which I will assign dual Grat duty to Number 7

    1. Wow! I am impressed that you were using google translate on that site. I just read the English provided.

  2. Intestinal distress is the WORST. Good news that only one of you got it. AND that it only lasted 12 hours! How nice that you got to visit with family, even from a distance! Let's hope by fall, we will be able to visit our family and friends safely!

  3. I'm happy to hear the distress has passed...oh, poor choice of words? Memoirs are serious work.
