Thankful Thursday #68
I’ve said it before and I will say it again: Where does the time go? It is hard to believe that it is Thursday already. But I made it here as you did so "we" already have one thing to be thankful for:
I am thankful just to be alive. That in itself is a blessing and I thank God for every day He gives me here on earth. When I hear about all the people dying, the pain and suffering and all the drama going on, it makes me thankful just to be me.
I am thankful for my children. My youngest turned 13 on Wednesday which makes him officially a teenager. That also makes me officially OLD. But then old is better than the other option. Not that I am afraid of dying or anything like that, I am just happy to be here.
I am thankful for my sense of humor. I know the people I work with appreciate it too. Otherwise things would be really dull at work. I guess it takes all kinds but I really don't know why people mope around when they have it so good. And speaking of humor; If you think the last four words of the National Anthem are; “Gentlemen start your engines”…..You might be a redneck. (that’s what my son’s birthday card said) I said; What’s so funny those are the last 4 words.
I am thankful that I was able to figure out a really difficult program at work yesterday. My boss gave me two documents to transpose into the new program. He returned about a half hour later and said; Sorry to load you up but here is one more. I said; That’s ok I finished the first two already. He said; wow and I said; sounds like raise time. More of my work humor.
I am thankful for springtime which seems to be here. It was a really cold winter and winter is not my favorite season. All my trees are budding and my other plants are growing rapidly. You should see how good they all look. Wait, you will in a short while when I post pictures. Time to break out the camera.
So now I challenge you to find something to be thankful for this Thursday. No matter how bad you may have it, I am sure you can find something. Please join in by linking up below.
And have a great Thankful Thursday,
