Thankful Thursday

thankful button 150 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.

    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!
