10 Things of Thankful Challenge

I have decided to participate in the Ten Things of Thankful (TTOT) challenge. Here are my 10 things I am grateful for in the past week:

1. Family and Friends who become family-I have had a nice spark of happy from one of my besties who lives a good ways away. Thankful for ways to keep communicating via text and social media messenger.
2. Positivity – we went to the retirement community to see Mama and the positives there are so wonderful. We played BINGO and I love seeing people having fun.
3. Freedom and those who make it possible-I am especially mindful of this in light of the government shutdown.
4. Good food and that I always have food-I love to buy groceries and enjoy that I am able to buy good, healthy food.
5. Freedom of expression-despite the fact that I have to ignore some negativity, I enjoy that there is still this freedom.
6. Colors-how dull would life be without color? Lately, I have had this on my mind as I have friends with sight issues.
7. Warm days and the ability to warm cold ones-maybe I should say I am thankful that I was reminded by my good friend how beneficial a heating pad is and that I happened to have one. I got that out and – OH YEAH!!
8. Movement-some days I am a weeble wobble and I have fallen down. This week I have had less of this.
9. Art of all forms-As I was looking at my walls yesterday, I was thinking of how fortunate I am to be able to hang lovely pictures and am able to create art.
10. Writing-I would be lost without the ability to express myself in written word. Also, I was published.

Those are my thankfuls for this past week. What are yours? Would you like to participate? Click on this LinkΒ 

And here’s a Shout Out to Wendy from the Blog: Picnic With Ants for posting about the TTOT challenge!

  1. Awww. I love you too.

  2. Friends who are so dear to us that they are like family are something wonderful to have in our life.It’s good you have so many things to be thankful for, I like your list.
    Have a great week!


  3. Glad you linked up. I loved reading your post and also reading a little about you here. (I’m glad you were able to have such an extensive interview with your father before his struggle with Alzheimer’s Disease. I’m thankful for the histories and journal writings that my mother did in the years preceding the onslaught of Alzheimer’s Disease.)

    Having friends who feel like family really is a blessing.

    I have experienced that “weeble wobble” feeling too, and am thankful when I don’t feel that way and don’t fall.

    All the colors! Yes, I am so happy that I don’t live in a “black and white” world.
