Thankful Thursday

I can’t express how much I need Thankful Thursdays in my life. It always seems like I’m feeling sorry for myself or cranky on a Wednesday and this forces me to realize how MUCH I have to be thankful for.

The following are what I am grateful for this week:

  • Friends like my neighbor Kelly who welcomes my husband & me with open arms, no matter how late we invite ourselves over to have a glass of wine with her and her husband.
  • More friends (and family) who came to Jackson’s birthday party last weekend and made it very special for him. My mother-in-law even commented on what a wonderful circle of friends we have, I have to agree!
  • Amazon Prime On Demand: Although I have been a Prime member for years, I just recently started using the app for my iPad and am now hooked on the TV show Downtown Abbey. I love being able to watch tons of shows and movies for FREE, just for being a Prime member.
  • Headphones that allow me to watch those shows in bed on my iPad without waking up my husband.
  • Holiday card season: there’s nothing I like more than receiving all the holiday cards from those we love. Seeing their smiling faces and reading about their lives always makes me happy.

What are you thankful for? I love reading your comments or blog posts when you link up :)

    Amazon prime is essential during the holidays! I am thankful for that too! And the new streaming and kindle book is great (I sound like an ad. I swear I’m just a satisfied customer!)

    Good friends are like gold… particularly the ones who welcome you into their homes at any time! :) I love holiday card season, too. I’ve started addressing ours, so they’ll be going out soon. I love going to our mailbox every day to see whose cards are coming in!
