Ten Things of Thankful – Mid January

Today I’m taking part in the Ten Things of Thankful (TToT) challenge.
“Every week, bloggers from all over the world gather together here online to share with each other the things that they have been thankful for during the past week. Although the number ten is in the title, that is more of a suggestion than a hard and fast rule.” If you are interested in participating here’s the link to it. Ten Things of Thankful
“The blog hop opens every Friday morning at 1:00 a.m. Mountain time, and closes the following Tuesday at 11:55 p.m. Mountain time.?”

This week I’m thankful for:

  1. feeling better mentally and starting to get back to being me.
  2. my dog always being there for a cuddle, support, and listening to me when I need to talk. 🙂
  3. being able to drive this past Thursday, only 1 mile to the store, but it was glorious. (I haven’t been able to drive in the past few months)
  4. the weather was so nice when I drove I was able to take the top down on my car.
  5. my father-in-law’s wife appears to be okay after a fainting spell and a fall.
  6. I was able to go to my nephew’s birthday party and got to play with the sweetest child I think I’ve ever met. Such joy was emanating for her, I didn’t care I was hurting, she said she wanted to play with me instead of the other kids, that warmed my heart.
  7. I have the ultrasound on my kidney’s tomorrow to see if my ureter is still causing my urine to stay in my kidney’s too long.
  8. I have the love of my blogging friends and family. One in particular is going though a very challenging time, I’m grateful she can talk to me.
  9. I was able to just throw together a soup yesterday with mainly just pantry ingredients.
  10. last but certainly not least, I’m very grateful my friends who live where the blizzard has occurred are safe.
  11. extra…I’m grateful we had a few 70F degree days this week, it was a joy, and I’m grateful we have a fireplace for the cold night we’re getting tonight. (the warm weather will be back on the weekend…Yay!)

I think I could have gone on, there are so many things I’m thankful for this week. Some weeks I really have to struggle, but I’m so thankful for so many things. Like this challenge, I needed it to show me how thankful I am for so much!

What are you thankful for this week?

  1. I am thankful that I am finally in less pain after having my wisdom tooth out one week ago. I’m also extremely thankful for our furnace. We are in the deep freeze this week in MN. Every time the furnace comes on, I’m just so happy for the heat.

    1. Those are some pretty good thing to be thankful for!
      I’m so glad you are in less pain.
      and heat is a good thing. It is going to be freezing here tonight…I’m in the desert, so freezing seems very cold here. haha
      I’m thankful we have a fire place. I think I’d die in MN. We moved from NC to AZ this year, I’m loving the weather, even when it’s horribly hot, I just think, at least it’s not freezing. LOL
      xoxo w

    1. You are so amazing!! I’m very grateful I know you. I wish we could meet in real life, but I think I missed that opportunity when I moved 3000 miles away! You are such a lovely person. I adore you. xoxo….wendy

    Great to see you here at the TToT landing spot.
    I’ll bet you felt totally liberated being able to drive again, AND to enjoy a beautiful day too.
    How sweet that a child picked you to play with instead of the other kids. She obviously sensed the caring heart you have, and maybe a listening ear.
    I’m glad there were fewer struggles for you this past week, and hope this week will be a good one for you too.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I”m so grateful for that. I’m also so happy you’ve been feeling mentally better and were able to have a quick drive to the store. Wow 70 degrees Fahrenheit, I wish we had that here in January. I hope the ultrasound came back clear or at least something can be done about your suffering.
