Thankful Thursday

It's that day again, where we pause and give thanks for all those blessings in our lives.   Gratitude is a habit or discipline that needs to be developed and practiced, even when you don't feel like it.
So, in that determination, I am so very thankful that the weather is 37 degrees this morning and not down to the 20's like yesterday.  I am thankful that we bought a new thermostat, even though we've yet to get it to work.  I am thankful for quilts and sunshine and portable heaters.  I am thankful for pretty days in which we can still be outside. I am thankful for a fluffy little white furball that keeps me warm. I am thankful we are never alone.  Blessings flow from loved ones and friends, I am rich indeed.  The blessings from above are not poured out dependent on my life and choices, but He that first loved me  continues to bless.  I am thankful for my hubby and the man he is.  I am blessed beyond measure by his love and faithfulness.  Even on those days when life throws curve balls, he remains steadfast in his commitment to me.  I am thankful that my days have been determined by my Lord and that my lot is secure. 
I pray that your day is filled with an awareness of blessings and love.  Our life passes so very quickly that we need to be grateful for each day we have.
Hugs, Noreen & Hunter


  1. We also have many things to be thankful for, mom says sometimes she gets caught up in the "wishing for more" and then she remembers all the families who have much less.
    Have a great Thursday
