Ten Things of Thankful #1

So I will admit I have watched this particular linkup for a while. I am not sure why I have yet to participate in it aside from my general shyness of joining already established groups. However, I find this to be inspiring, so I am willing to give this a go.

  1. I am incredibly thankful for the love of my husband. He is the rock in my life, even though some days he doesn’t know it. I know I need to tell him more. When I am down and depressed, he in his own way reminds me in his own way that I am not alone and I am loved.

 

  1. I am thankful for making the decision to put tubes in Pickle’s ears. It was not something we came to lightly. However, in the months since he has had it done, his speech has grown exponentially. He went, at 18 months old, from saying Mama and Dada to short sentences. To my husband and I, the tubes are a blessing.

 

  1. I am thankful for being placed on the roster this week for next Saturday’s bout. I know that everyone has a fair chance of getting rostered. It shows to me that the hard work I am putting into practice is paying off.

 

  1. I am thankful for the sunny weather we are having this weekend. This week was very cold and dreary. It was eating at me to the point of throwing me into a depression. Being in the sunshine really helps improve my moods.

 

  1. I am thankful for my new little nephew. He is an adorable little baby. I know that my brother and his girlfriend will be amazing parents. I am also grateful that they drove the 1 1/2hrs up so we could meet him. My boys were excited to meet their first cousin.

 

  1. I am thankful for our little slice of heaven. It is nice to sit out on the deck watching nature at its finest. I love watching my little chickens hunt for bugs. The boys chase each other around in the yard. I love listening to the wind blow through the woods. It is just a little world of peace.

 

  1. I am thankful for my blogging community. I know that I haven’t been as active as I was at one point. However, I know that even in my absence, they would be still willing to support me. They continue to inspire me with their words.

 

  1. I am thankful for waffle cone and all of their delicious goodness

 

  1. I am just thankful for where life has brought me. I was once someone who believed good things did not exist for me. Now not only do I know that I do, I strive for me goodness in my life.

 

  1. I am thankful for all the men and women who protect my freedoms. I am not a blazing patriot. However, I understand the value and sacrifice those of the armed forces have made. To them and all of their family, I am forever and eternally grateful.

Thank you Lizzi for creating Ten Things of Thankful! I look forward to doing this again and again.

  1. So nice you connected with this wonderful group. Finding thankfulness every week, no matter what is going on in your life, has a positive effect on everyone who participates. I’ve been participating for almost a year and it is a supportive, friendly blog hop.

  2. I admit my eyes glazed over a bit when you said ‘waffle cone’…ohhh it’s been so long! BUT…this is a great first list, and WELCOME. I’m glad you took the plunge 🙂

    What could be lovelier than a new baby? Except sunshine (do you ever use a tanning booth?? I used to stave off depression that way sometimes) AND babies. I wish you more sun, and more time with your nephew, and ongoing loveliness with your husband, who sounds awesome.

  3. The blogging community can be so wonderfully supportive! I know Dyanne has followed me through three different blogs and still pops in for a comment when she has time. Sunny weather can be such a huge mood booster! I love it when the weather is nice.
    I love chocolate and I love raspberries. For some reason I do not at all like the two flavors combined.

  4. I am so glad you joined in the #10Thankful fun! I do not participate as consistently as I would like (or as I think I should), but I always feel better for having done so when I finally do! I think the bloggers that participate in this hop are about the best around. I am still getting to know most of them, but I feel “at home,” if that makes any sense.

    My brother & his girlfriend recently had a baby too. Plus, my husband’s brother & wife did as well. We are an uncle & auntie again twice over. It is pretty cool. We haven’t met them yet, but will get to in July when we go for a visit finally. . . I suspect you & I might have a few other things in common, but, for now, I will leave it at that. 😉

  5. Welcome to the TToT! Don’t worry about being new–you’ll find this is a very welcoming group!
    Your home sounds like it is just as it should be–a peaceful retreat from the world.

  6. Welcome to the TToT!! I’m glad you jumped in to share this week. It always pus me in a happy mood to read through all of the wonderful things, both big and small, happening with people around the world.
    The weather this weekend was grand. We had cold and cloudy last week, too, but Friday and Saturday made up for it.
    It sounds like you are living a life similar to mine, with the chickens and room for the kids to play. We live on a little hobby farm, and I just love to be outside, listening to all of nature.
    Hope to see you around the hop more often!

  7. Yay! Another new-comer this week like me. 🙂 Love your post and hope you’ve been enjoying the TToT experience as much as I have this past weekend. I’m looking forward to participating in many more of them and hope you are, too. 🙂
