Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful that I'm spending another Christmas holiday with hubby. We have a wonderful day planned tomorrow and we always enjoy just the two of us doing dinner together and calling friends we've not talked to in a bit.

I'm thankful that we got some much needed rain this past week. Being in a severe drought is not fun one bit.

I'm thankful that our family got together for our Christmas dinner last week. We had a nice time as always.

I'm thankful for my health. There are days that I'm slower than others, but I'm on my feet without any aid. Growing old is a wonderful gift that often has hidden surprises.

I'm thankful for all my blogging buddies. You know who you are. Many of you I've met in person and many I've been visiting for years. You make going on line each day a delight.

I'm thankful that hubby and I are going on a long weekend trip to Rockaway Beach in Pacifica the first part of next month. We've not been there in years and it will be fun to return. We plan to enjoy lots of seafood and each other.

What are you thankful for today?

  2. I am thankful that I don't have to cook! Cbhristmas Eve will find us over at the Swamp with my parents as MotherDear is making her world famous spaghetti and meatballs. Christmas Day we'll all be over Peggy & Mikes for a lovely Chrsitmas meal and fellowship with dear friends. And their sweet dogs. Love them bunches, too! :P

    Enjoy your day! Extra big Christmas hugs to you and Zane! xoxo

  5. I am thankful for no snow which means I'll be able to make the long drive to go to my family's Christmas Eve party later today.

    And I, too, am thankful for people in the blogging community who I can visit in the middle of the night when I can't sleep.

  8. Hello Sandee, I am thankful for my family and children, for my health and friends. Also thankful for blogger friends like you even though we have not met each other. I am also thankful for the little things and people in my life that sometimes I have taken for granted. Enjoy your long weekend trip at Rockaway Beach in Pacific. Merry Christmas and Happy new year to you and family!

  18. I'm thankful to spend another Christmas holiday with my husband and with his family. Although my family are many miles away, I'm thankful to at least talk with them by telephone.

    I'm also thankful to have very little planned for the next few days. Paperwork is done at school. My reviews are almost done for another week. I have a wide open schedule. Even next week, my major plans are simply to read and hang out with friends.

    Here we woke up to snow. My husband and I plan to take our cats out on leashes later to experience their first winter weather. I'm thankful for a house full of critters to love.

    My health is not always the best. Somehow though it's been a blessing. It forces me to relax more, pray more, and feel thankful more for each new day. ;-)

    Enjoy your time with hubby and with friends. The trip to Rockaway Beach, along with meals of seafood, sounds delightful.

    Merry Christmas!

  19. Wow, Sandee!!! You are too much!!! Thank You!!!
    I love your art work.
    We will have our youngest daughter and family, SIL, and our two youngest granddaughters here for Christmas dinner. Her in-laws will also be here and perhaps our youngest son if he doesn't work.
    We had the entire family over for super and white elephant exchange on December 6. There were about twenty-four (two great-grandchildren counted).
    :-h
    Merry Christmas, Sandee, and to your other readers as well.

  25. It's nice that you're thankful for Christmas with your hubby. A client at work told someone they weren't doing anything special for Christmas, just being with family. All of us were kind of like...isn't that special? That's what I'm going to be doing in a few hours and I'm really excited! :)

  26. Enjoy your Rain Sandee. We awoke to the sound of rain today. We've been in a drought too so rain is desperately needed here, especially for the Farmers. Tasmania used to have a reputation as always raining many years ago. Climate change has made a huge difference to that

  27. Like you, I am thankful for my health. I have my issues but they are manageable through the gift of modern medicine, for which I am also grateful.
    I am thankful that our family live here in town and we get to see them often and watch the grandcrew grow into young adults.
    I am ever so grateful for the gift of salvation and eternal life through the reason that we celebrate Christmas.
    Have a blessed holiday season and a most joyful new year.

  29. I love this idea of Thankful Thursdays. I've started writing down what I'm thankful for every day and it starts my day in such a good, positive and optimistic mood. There is so much to be thankful for every single day :) I hope you had amazing Christmas holidays with your hubby! Have a wonderful week and enjoy your vacation :)
    Lots of big hugs to you,
    Beate
