Thankful Thursday v.11.15

Linking up with Sar and Meghan for some gratitude attitude on this Thankful Thursday.

This week, I'm particularly thankful for:

1 - My BFF Cheryl, who lent me her rotary cutter and cutting mats for my reupholstery project. How did I not know these products existed? Talk about turning a nasty job into an easy task!

2 - Friends who understand and cooperate with my philosophy that time spent together during the holiday season is much more important than exchanging Christmas gifts. We downsized our Christmas list a few years ago, and now exchange gifts with immediate family only. Less stressful and much more meaningful!

3 - The thirty or so family members who participate in our annual holiday party during the Christmas season. (I'm hosting this year, so planning is already on my mind) In the one and only exception to our downsized Christmas list, everyone who attends brings a new <$20 gift and we have a hilarious, rowdy gift exchange. Can't wait!

4 - My talented, compassionate dental care team. I have great teeth but troublesome gums, and must have my teeth cleaned 4X a year. My hygienist always does a wonderful job, with very little discomfort involved. But I still don't like to go!

5 - Electronic communication. I love being able to keep in contact with family, old friends, new friends, and the world at large via text messages, emails, Facebook, Twitter and blogs. Love them all, except when they contain TMI!

Hope you find many things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season!



  1. Who TMIs? Me, only that one time I sent a picture of my burst boil. That was gross.

  2. I love the whole idea of counting our blessings and realizing how much we have to be thankful for.
    we downsized too on the Christmas lists..maybe because it is all the expensive electrical stuff everyone wants!
    good luck hosting your dinner..sounds fun even planning it!!
