Thankful Thursday



Even though today feels like Friday to me, it’s Thursday!  And it’s time to take a few moments to be intentionally thankful.  Won’t you join me in stopping for a few moments today to tell God “thank you”.


I’m thankful for:

  • This cooler weather!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE getting out sweaters and sweatshirts.  Although I have to confess that I’ve been wearing them all summer … the air conditioners in public places have been set so low that I have been wearing my winter clothes whenever I go out … I’ve assured everyone at work and at church that I really DO have nice summer clothes.  ha!


  • Answered prayers. 


  • Getting together to celebrate birthdays.  DD turned 36 on Sunday, and we got together that evening to celebrate her birthday.  It wasn’t anything fancy … just the 8 of us, having some quick and easy appetizers for dinner followed by games … a little Sequence, a little Life, and some Rook after the littles went to bed.


  • Lazy weekends.  Sometimes we just need a couple of days where there’s nothing planned,  nowhere special that we have to go … where we can spend some time just relaxing, doing the things we love.


  • Words with Friends on Facebook.  While technically I have an iPhone (my sister sent me her old one when she got a new one), I’m too cheap thrifty to pay for the phone service … I use it as a camera and for internet/email whenever I can tap into wi-fi.  But if I ever had an iPhone, I’d be adding the Words with Friends app!  So I was thrilled when I discovered that Facebook added Words with Friends. 


  1. I love playing words with friends on my phone but I'm glad to know fb has it now too! Awesome!

    I really enjoy your Thankful Thursday! I was remembering to be thankful this morning when I saw the sunrise- so beautiful!

  2. forgot to say the other day, happy (belated) birthday to your daughter! sounds like a nice way to celebrate her special day! those games you played are all great ones too!! So neat to always find things to be thankful for!


  3. HI Kathy, Such a great Gratitude that about you! I'm enjoying cooler days too-makes walking so much more enjoyable but not looking ahead to winter. So I didn't know you are on FB, come "friend" me-I Noreen Taylor.
    Have a great afternoon.
    Hugs, Noreen

  4. Sounds like a great list of thankfulness. Enjoy the rest of your day and have a nice weekend.

  5. I'm loving the cooler weather, too, and have gotten out a few sweaters. It's so nice to wrap up in them. Haven't played Words With Friends yet, but will look for it.

  6. I love words with friends...I'm at jodaley if you want to play : )

  7. I love words with friends but I can't remember my name at this time. Isn't that pitiful? I'll think of it and share it with you soon. Always enjoy your Thankful Thursday entries!

  8. I love lazy weekends, they're the best kinds. You remind me of my hubby--wearing winter clothing year-round :)


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
