Thursday In The Woods

I don't usually do a Thankful Thursday
but today I thought it was appropriate.

           The Things I Am Thankful For On This Thursday

~ The cute Snowshoe Siamese who is sitting on the window sill looking at bird tv

~ The Collie who is watching the Siamese while curled up on her blue blanket that is on the chair

~ The Crazy Cat Lady coffee mug that one of my not so crazy cat ladies gave me.

~ The birds singing in the meowning amongst the sounds of traffic.

~ I am so blessed to live in my woods.
   The sounds of the real world are near but not right here   at my door. I wish everyone could have my meownings.

~ The quiet that I enjoy each day living here.

~ That today I have nothing I have to do. Meaning, no appointments.

~ For extra time. It means a lot to me lately.

~ That I feel a bit better. My recent heart surgery did me in.

~ Hope. I have it again.

~ Laughter. It gets me through my day.

~ Lists. I make them and cross items off.
   Just something about doing that.

~ A cute Tortie cat sitting on the rug in the hall.
Best thing I ever did was to go in and take her home.

~ That although July was a bit rough for me that I made it through.

~ August is my birthday month. I love it.

~ My hair appointment yesterday went well.
   I actually like it. For once, someone did it right.

~ Everything. I am at that point in my life.
   I'm very appreciative of what I have.

Hope you have a wow meow kind of day,
~ JC ~

You've got the right idea - it's the small things that we need to appreciate. Of course, some of them are not so small: I'm glad you found that hope again.

So glad you are feeling better!!! Long may that state of mind last!!!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
