Thankful Thursday

Another week has flown by, and it’s time to stop and take some time to be intentionally thankful.

This week, I want to be especially thankful for:

  • Good results from our Abby’s surgery … while the tumor was cancerous, they were able to remove it all and get good margins. 

  • Time spent with my Ts … whether it’s a couple of hours like last night or most all of the day like today, these times make my heart sing.

  • Peaceful, quiet mornings … since I’ve retired, I find myself getting up at about the same time that I did when I was working … I love those first hours of the day, when everything is quiet and peaceful.

Feel thanks and it’s absolutely impossible to feel angry.  We can only experience one emotion at a time.  And we get to choose – which emotion do we want to feel?
I pray that I will remember that I get to choose which emotion I feel … and that I will choose thankfulness.


  1. I love the quiet mornings, also. I have time to think, dream, and meditate before all the cares of the day take over.

  2. Good morning! Praise God on the good results! Early mornings are hands down my favorite time of day! I am picking thankfulness too! Have a wonderful day! HUGS

  3. You're so right about feeling thanks making it impossible to fee angry! I need to remember that more often.

  4. That is wonderful news on Abby. Okay, it's time for me to go find my One Thousand Gifts book and start reading it!

  5. I like the mornings too but I do confess, I am not up at 6am like I used to be. Now it's more like 8am. After working all those years, I treasure not having to do it now. I'm on my 3rd year of workless freedom and love it.

  6. That is a wonderful though, I will remember it. I love all of the things you are thankful for today. Have a lovely day today.

  7. I am new hear - but when I hear someone has cancer and it is removed - I praise and thank the Lord. Good, no great news. sandie
