Ten Things of Thankful – March 8


1. So, I did this for another challenge called The Six Sentence Challenge. I had a very busy week and am grateful I was able to keep to my goal of getting this written. You can hop over to read my actual post on my blog.  You can read it HERE

2. Gratitude for the counsel of others to help me stay on the right track with mindfulness. It seems like when I get to the point of need, an answer always comes.

3. My Mother. She was one in a million and as this is the month she left this side of the world, I am grateful to have had her in my life and that she’s always around whenever I feel the need to talk to her. Here are some sweet pictures of her.


I’m sitting on the couch by mom


4. This is a SPACE available for YOU!! I am thankful for YOU!!

5. I made great strides in my newest project and am proud of myself and very grateful!

6. Successful with my tax return, I am now officially filed!

7. Humor! I’m fortunate to have met a wonderful blogging group and one of my favorite blogs is THIS ONE! Go look and you will LOL

8. Jodi (daughter) came to see us and it’s always a great time to be grateful for her company and just her sweet being!

9. I finished reading a couple of good books. One was called Close Enough to Touch and the other was Alchemy of Grief: Your Journey to Wholeness. I found both to be very beneficial. I may write more about this on another post.

10. April 15th. I am still grateful that it’s 45 days after today when that day comes.
Here’s the Blog Hop LINK FOR TTOT

Why not take a look?

  1. Enjoyed the Post. Great mix of media and topic… (like the free-form TToTs as much as the organized and concise ones.)
    Just dropped off my tax stuff to my accountant. (Have never been fond of ‘the mathematics’ or the demands of preciseness… lol) He’ll call in a week, I go send off money and the task is behind me)
    Hey, odd thought* Anyone else ever say your father (in first photo) has a more than passing resemblance to Jeremy Renner? (with a 1960’s military haircut)

    *like that ever happens here at the Doctrine.

    1. Thank you. I’ve not heard that about Jeremy Renner, but there’s one I can’t locate where he looks like Rock Hudson. Those Tomey boys have some looks! But…I may be biased…


  2. Your SSS kind of goes along with one of the books you mentioned in #9. The Alchemy of Grief:Your Journey to Wholeness sounds like it would be a very helpful book for anyone. Excellent SSS.
    We got our tax papers turned in to the accountant last week. Tomorrow I’ll be turning in my mom’s tax papers to her accountant.The plan had been to get everything turned in during February, but with the snowstorms and the health issues things got delayed a bit. Such is life.
    Love your family photo!

  3. I love the pictures of your mom! I lost my mom almost three years ago. She was my biggest fan, and I’ve had such a hard time writing since. Trying to get back in it by joining the TToT!

  4. I did our taxes last week as well, and it’s such a good feeling to leave this behind!
    Thanks for sharing these fotos of your mother with us, it warms my heart to hear your declaration of love.
    Have a wonderful week!
