Thankful Thursday:) There is Always Something to be Thankful For.

19 Jul

“When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.”

~Tecumseh

This morning, I woke up being thankful that I didn’t need an alarm to wake me, I had a ceiling fan above, and air conditioning buzzing through the night. The temperatures have been sizzling, so I got up early to walk while it was only in the upper 80’s/low 90’s. I was thankful that I could walk the dog in the shady park across the street, then continue my solo walk for almost an hour before impending heat stroke.

After I came home and cooled off, I decided to make a fruit smoothie. I felt so thankful that I have a beautiful home, enough food to eat, and my health. (Well, fairly healthy for an old geezer.) Before I opened the refrigerator, I couldn’t help but smile at photos that greet me every day. How lucky am I, to have that fridge that’s plastered with pictures and reminders of what life is all about.

My greatest joy and happiness and the main reason I am so thankful is my family. These photos are a daily reminder of how much I am blessed. That’s when I decided that today would be my Thankful Thursday.

Inside my wonderful fridge were the ingredients for a refreshing fruit smoothie. When I buy fruit, there is always extra to freeze for a rainy day…in this case, a steamy day.

Mango, cantaloupe, banana, and some apple/peach juice. Ah, it was like eating sorbet. Enough left over for tonight after karaoke. Perhaps a little vodka might find its way into the concoction?

While I ate my smoothie with a spoon, I checked my Facebook page. Finally, the long anticipated McKinney PD Lipsync Challenge was posted. It is so cute. Plus, this is another reason to be thankful. I live in such a great town, with friendly folks, nice neighbors, and lots of things to do. Everyone did a great job on the video. Check it out…

Yes, there’s a lot to be thankful for. Have a terrific Thankful Thursday, Y’all.
