Thankful Thursday


Thankful Thursdays are all about taking the time to appreciate all the little things that actually went right during the week. I am someone who can get flustered very easily - even when the smallest thing goes wrong. So why not focus on all the little things that went right and be grateful?

1. Well after my rant last Friday about the nice weather and having to work all day, I am thankful that I was able to manage to spend some of my time at work outside - sort of. The library owns the house next door and we use this house for storage and for literacy classes. One of the things I do at the library is organize and administer our yearly book sale. The books that have been donated to the book sale are stored in the garage of the house. So, I decided to spend part of Friday "at the house" organizing the newly donated books! I got to spend 2 hours in the garage with the door wide open and enjoy the cool breezes and warm sun. Better than nothing.

2. I'm thankful that Saturday was also a beautiful summer day and that I had an opportunity to spend some time at our local town beach with a book. It was so peaceful to sit there on the quiet beach, by myself and just take in the sights, sounds and smells of the beach. Heavenly!

3. I'm thankful that on Sunday we were able to spend the day with two families that we have been dear friends with for a long time. It's been a while since we've been able to bring all three families together. Especially now that we all have busy teenagers. Well, all the planets were aligned on Sunday and we spent a lovely afternoon gathered in our backyard for a cookout and camaraderie. It was great.

How about you? What are you grateful for?

I'm thankful business is getting better and I'm actually thinking about another Europe trip! On the flipside, much of the last three weeks I haven't been getting home before 7-8 p.m. Be careful what you wish for?

Sounds like the best way to spend a Sunday afternoon in the summer.

I am so thankful for my health, which is not exactly perfect, but is pretty good!

I'm thankful for being the least crazy person in my family. The one that I grew up with , that is. And I'm thankful for my new family. And I't thankful for the rain that we got this week!

Thankful Thursday is such a great idea! Great blog! I'm jealous of your reading adventures. I have a 3 year old and can't seem to find the time to read a book cover to cover though I have a love for books.

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!!!
