Thankful Thursday - #s 71-80

"A happy heart makes the face cheerful...."
Proverbs 15:13

I have been thinking over things that have brought me happiness this week and came to the conclusion that this is pretty much another way of expressing my thankfulness. So this Thankful Thursday my list will reflect the happiness of my heart....

I am happy that my husband is home (at last) after a 2 week long business trip.

I am happy to have three unique, vibrant young men as my sons.

I am happy to have a space (desk) of my own to organize; decorate; and sit, dream & create at.

I am happy to help friends move into our neighborhood.

I am happy to receive gleeful child hugs.

I am happy to have tears and feel the healthy highs and lows of life (anyone who has ever had to take medication which stabilizes, but also flat lines emotions may possibly relate).

I am happy to have a cute, cuddly pet who speaks with her eyes (as well as the thoughts and words we enjoy assigning to her mouth).

I am happy to be able to write today.

I am happy there is no school tomorrow.

I am happy to have humor in my life.

Thankful Thursday is hosted by Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses.


  1. See that you too are a happy person! I think that it is so important to keep positive thoughts in our minds, it is so easy to get caught up in the negative! Something I have started doings is say a prayer for someone every time I am downloading photos on blogspot.

  2. Hi Steph
    I am happy to have you as a blogging friend. You list today makes me happy!
    Hugs, Rhondi

  3. Nice thoughts---there is so much in life to be thankful for.....your kittie is a much younger version of our old cat, BOOTS!

  4. Oooops--I see that that cat on your header is not your cat!

  5. I enjoyed your happy thoughts. We all have so much to be thankful for but we need to remind ourselves occasionally.

    Thanks for visiting and the lovely comment. Have a great day.

  6. Dear Mrs. C,
    What a wonderful thought & idea.

    And Rhondi, you are a special lady. I'm happy to have found you & your warm, welcoming heart early on in the development of this blog.

    NannyKim, I wish she WAS my cat. I'll be over for a visit and to say "hi" to Boots.

    SquirrelQueen, I'll be back. Your photos and words are wonderful.

  7. And I am happy that I found your blog!!!

  8. Steph, I never thought of thinking of being thankful for the "lows" of life, but I suppose if we didn't have them, we couldn't appreciate the "highs". Thanks for that insight. I'm happy I found you in blogland too! xo,


Thank you for your comments. They help me feel that I am some how connected out here in Blogland and not just writing to the air.
