Thankful Thursday


Every time I am to start on my Thankful Thursday post, I always ask myself: "What can I be thankful for this time?" Then I look around and I find things that I should be thankful for like:
....... those flowers that I see through my kitchen window. Every time I get closer to them I feel sad that the heat makes them less perfect. But then, I look again and I see the beauty in their colors, shape and texture and I feel ashamed I was less grateful.
....... the little bugs that feast on the aphids that feast on the rose buds. Without them I will have nothing to enjoy looking at from my kitchen window.
....... the dust that accumulates on my kitchen floor. I sort of exercise each time I wipe them off with my feet on a rag.
....... my having 8 more days left before I go back to work.
....... someone reading this blog right now.

What a lovely thankful list! The one about exercising by cleaning made me smile. I think I had a great workout by doing the same too for a while now :-)

Remain blessed!
