Thankful Thursday


I saw this on The Open Window and decided to participate this week. There are so many great ideas in this cyber world! How did we get along before computers?

So.... my list starts out with....

1. Computers and the cyber world! I have met so many wonderful people on the web. People I know would not have crossed my path any other way. God bless you!

2. One day on my diet that went well! I was able to reach my goals for my first day: no eating after 8 pm, 6 glasses of water, taking more steps and eating healthy choices, even if I ate too much.

3. Daughters! I feel blessed to have Ashley in my life. She is a constant joy even when she complains about friends who don't show up to go jogging with her. She called me to complain about that. My first thought was, "lucky girl, now you don't have to go run" but that didn't seem to make her feel better...

4. Mommas. I am so lucky to have mine still around!

5. Cats. I take my dear Bustopher for granted. After reading the sad posts on My Messy Thrilling Life about the passing of her cat, I have decided to love on him as much as possible. I kinda thought Bustopher was annoying at times... he does the same thing as Mae... sits by me when I eat, lays on me when I am on the couch, sleeps with me at night... so I am going to enjoy this more and complain less...

6. Life! I am always grateful I have been blessed with one more day! Thank you God for lifting me up each and every day!

  1. A wonderful list of things to be thankful for! Like you, I love how the computer has brought so many of us together in friendship:-) Terri, can you please email me your home address? I need it for the Halloween Swap, thank you!! My email is carole_57@hotmail.com

  2. Your list is wonderful, Terri! I enjoyed reading it. There is inspiration there.


  3. Now that's a list! Congratulations on your first good day of dieting. May there be many more to follow!


  4. Love the list. Good job on your diet! I agree that we need to love our fur babies more. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Great list!
    I cuddled my cat this evening and am now paying for it (my eye is almost swollen shut). I am truly thankful for him, though...even if it is from a far;)
    Great job on the diet...one day at a time!

  6. I love your list Terri...we all really do have so much to be thankful for. I always cuddle my cats and dog...I am really bad about it. : )
    And gosh, how great are daughters?
    I adore my son too of course but my daughter just *gets* me ya know? : )

    I am so glad your Mom is with you and will be at Ashley's wedding! I feel blessed every day to have my Mom near by.

    Have a sweet weekend dear Terri!


Comments are the new hugs!
