Things I’m thankful for:
Racing an oncoming storm
Short Family Car Trips
Thoughtful gifts from Cotton
(That makes 3 live garden snakes, 2 live birds that can still fly, a duckling, numerous mice (dead and alive), one full grown duck (living), numerous shrews the size of an average guinea pig, numerous gophers/prairie dogs, several dead birds, etc.)
Family support at a talent show reading
Success in baking homemade bread
Children bringing me fruit home because it had the name ‘star’ in it

This morning was pretty down for me, but then I stumbled across a prompt called “Thankful Thursdays” and I felt a lot better. After thinking it over for several hours and watching my niece hug my cat after accidentally stepping on her tail, I realized that I didn’t need to be so down when I have so much looking up for me right now. Most of these pictures were taken within the last month or at least within the last 30 days. There were more I wanted to add, but I realized it would make for a super long post which I wasn’t certain I should do.
But I just wanted to make a quick little list of things off my phone that I actually had pictures of to remind myself that there are many things to be thankful for today. No matter how dark things seem, there’s always going to be sunshine at the end, or at least puddles to jump in during the downpour.
Hope that y’all find something that will cheer your day up as well! If not, go on over and checkout the latest post for the Thankful Thursday challenge: http://mithriluna.wordpress.com/2014/05/01/thankful-thursday-gratitude-is-a-life-saving-remedy/
It just might do you a world of good like it did me.
