Thankful Thursday:) So Much To Be Thankful For

27 May

Every morning count your blessings

In the evening give your thanks.

A grateful heart knows endless joy

Not found with money or in banks.

The secret is not in taking

But in what you have to give.

So, appreciate each moment

That’s the only way to live.

I love setting aside a day to express my thanks for all my blessings. I do count them EVERY day, but I like to share them every now and then with friends and family. Being a writer, artist, baker, amazing cook, singer, dancer and all around talented creative “modest” AMAZING person, I wrote the little poem above. So many blessings, so little time, not enough words.

Today, when I opened up my Facebook page, I found some adorable photos in my memories.

This just melted my heart. Four years ago, how the time does fly.
A photo from today. See how time flies!!!!
This was from 12 years ago. Lin Lin and her granddaughter visiting my mom. Precious memory. Addie is a teenager now. 🤦‍♀️
I am thankful for the wonderful lunch Helene and I had today at Palio’s Pizza Cafe. on 380. We hadn’t been there in a while. Miguel had to come out and give us a hug. He said he missed us. Where can you get an awesome lunch, complete with salad and a drink for under $10? And don’t forget… a nice hug.
After lunch, I stopped at Kroger to pick up a few last minute things for Towne Creek art class tomorrow. I had some extra coupons that I wasn’t going to use, so I placed them next to the item so someone else could use them. As my 3 year old granddaughter likes to say, “Sharing is caring.”

There is SO MUCH to be thankful for, especially my beautiful family and awesome friends. Happy Thankful Thursday.
