Thanksgiving Thursday

"God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.
Have you used one to say "thank you?"
~William A. Ward
I love Thanksgiving Thursday! I started it to ensure that I take the time to reflect on the many blessings in my life! I like this quote, because with all the time we have each day I think it is still so easy to forget to say "thank you" simply for "being". I am guilty of getting caught up with "everything" and not reflecting as much as I should. So here I am reminding myself with this quote and Thanksgiving Thursday to give thanks to all the wonderful things in my life. Here are my five for the day.

Thank you:

1.) For Little Chick and her radiant smile!
2.) For having been blessed with two sweet doggies in my life (Cuddles we miss you)!

3.) For having grown up in a very loving family!
4.) For the ocean!
5.) For having a voice to be able to make a positive difference while here on Earth!

  7. I was thinking about doing a similar post yesterday! Of course I was too tired by the time I had time to write a blog post.

    Very sweet posts of course. You're little chick is blessed to have such a loving, positive influence as a mother.
