Thankful Thursday


I've mentioned before that I've been following the Simple Abundance path for the past couple of years, and with this new year, I've been feeling convicted about sliding past the very first principle, Gratitude. I know I lead a blessed and contented life, full of gifts, grace, and the simple pleasures that make me happy; yet too often, I fail to express my gratefulness, not only with God, but also with my family and friends. I’m guilty of letting the speed of life and the myriad of commitments to keep me in blinder, focused on the next task, the next goal, instead of savoring the here-and-now moments of joy and blessing.


One of the ladies I visit on my blog rounds is Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses; she has been posting "Thankful Thursday" for quite some time and I always enjoy dropping by to see what cheers the heart of each person. This time, I’m joining in with a few things I am thankful for and mentally committing myself to being more aware all the good that surrounds me:


A roof over my head each night;

sharing my home those who love me;

having a job, however uncertain;

being able to treat snow as a novelty;

dental insurance;

modern plumbing;

having a car paid off!

I'm working with the Simple Abundance books this year, along with a number of other inspirational books. I love that you're a fan of them as well.

Your "Thankful Thursdays" post is lovely. I try to do something similar with my "Blessings Friday" posts. Sometimes I'm successful, sometimes I'm not.

Hi Meg
You are right about how easy it is to froget ot be thankful! I'm glad you joined us this week. I love the bird in your banner. It's beautiful.
Hugs, Rhondi

Great list! And after seeing the horrific images from Haiti, it is even easier to find things to be grateful for.
