Thankful Thursday

One of the fellow members of the Blogjolt group has a regular feature she blogs about each week. Her name is Jamie and her blog is

Apparently, she has been posting a Thankful Thursday item for a while now and I truly love the idea! Here’s her latest one, so you can see what I mean.

Since the way to happiness and prosperity is to start with an attitude of thankfulness, I am going to blog today about the things for which I am thankful.  Here goes (stream-of-consciousness-style)

I am thankful for:

  • a good paying “day job” that allows me to live a comfortable lifestyle
  • the ability to make and keep the most wonderful friends ever!!  (you all know who you are!)
  • that Cindy’s surgery came off ok and that she’s recovering very quickly
  • that my son John is nearly finished with college (whew! — more $$$)
  • that both of my kids and both of my granddaughters are healthy and doing fine
  • the most adorable granddaughters anyone could ever have!!
  • my health and the health of my friends
  • that it’s finally starting to become fall. I hate the 100 degree weather of the summer!
  • that I’ve had several very cool adventures lately and have a couple more coming up
  • a fabulous and fun “hobby”…that of making and designing jewelry
  • that I have discovered how fun it is to blog
  • three completely cute and cuddly “kitty boys”
  • new ideas every day
  • an occasional martini
  • as my grandfather would have put it: that I’m young enough to enjoy some things, but old enough to know better!  😉
  • an update to that: that I know better, but enjoy some things anyway!  🙂
  • that, for me anyway, 2006 has been a thousand times better than 2005!!!

I hope each of you take a few minutes to be thankful for the great things in your life today too!

    It’s a good practice. Even if I am having a less than stellar week I can always list several things to be thankful for! Shauna at O Pish Posh ( started Thankful Thursday so I must give her credit!
