Thankful Thursday, It's getting better all the time
You know without even having to think of it, just being alive and well is in itself enough to be thankful for these days. With all that is going on in the world I am blessed just to be healthy and to have a place to call my own. However things seem to be on an upward path for me at the moment so I am going to list a few special things that I am thankful for.
My oldest has officially started college now. Wow it is hard to believe. He will be the first male in the family to go to college since I started back in 1974. I never finished though but hopefully he will.
My youngest is doing well in school. I know it is only the first week but still starting on the right path is a step in the right direction.
As I said above I am healthy and that is a big thing. My wife and mother also continue to improve and I am thankful for that.
We got more rain. After that long drought we are getting rain on a regular basis now. I am thankful that I don't have to go out in the dark each morning and turn on the sprinklers.
I am also thankful for opportunities that I am given. This Saturday I am running the hotdog stand at the annual grape stomp down at the winery. I will be working with my youngest son this year and we are hoping to break the bank. Ok not really but we are hoping to do well enough to take the family out to dinner and maybe play a round of golf.
So what are you thankful for today? Please join me in being thankful. It is what helped me through the tough times.
Have a great day,
