Ten Things of Thankful

Remember those times when you were young sitting in a classroom and the teacher was waiting for the kids to quiet down and get ready for sharing time? What, you don't remember those times? Well you have some company. Perhaps only some teachers considered making sharing time part of their lesson plans, or maybe I was just too shy to want to stand in front of my classmates and say anything. I am guessing it was the latter, and was just thankful the teacher didn't make me participate that way.

Well, no one forces us to write a post each week and link our post to the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop hosted by Dyanne of Backsies Is What There Is Not, and she will never scold you for not showing up, or for linking up a day of two later than the day the link opens. She and the rest of us will miss reading your post, hope that you are okay, and look forward to reading your post the next time you show up, and that's the truth!

1. Good news on another a lab report here, so he and I can put aside those concerns

2. Children who stay connected and supportive of their siblings and their families when some are dealing with flu, others with extreme atmospheric weather conditions, and others with reactions to booster shots

3. Those with the skills and who have the desire to aid in times of emergency with the cleanup and helping find resources for people who have homes destroyed, etc.

4. Clarification of the identity of my cactus plant

I thought I had Christmas cacti which just seemed to enjoy blooming several times a year, usually around the holidays, i.e. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and sometimes Easter. Now I know for sure that my plants are all Thanksgiving cacti, although I still don't know why they usually all bloom at list a couple of different times, and something three times a year. The key to correctly identifying them is by the differences in their leaves as well as the blossoms.

5. The ebb and flow of life

6. Beautiful sunsets
