Thankful Thursday - Thankful for the Little Things

Thankful Thursday is such a good way for me to remind myself (and share) a few of the blessings that I am so thankful for.

I am thankful for good books, hot cups of coffee, laughter with the kids, and hugs from my husband.

I am thankful for the birds that visit our backyard. I saw a new visitor yesterday that made me really happy. I love mockingbirds, and have fond memories of listening to their calls when I was a child.

I am thankful for a freshly cleaned refrigerator. Somehow cleaning the refrigerator is one of the hardest things for me to find the time to do. But yesterday I tackled the job and it now I have to go look inside now and then just to enjoy how wonderful it looks.

 It's the little things that make me happy and I am so thankful for all of them.

For more Thankful Thursday gratefulness or to join in the fun head on over to The Nut House.


  1. I've never seen a mocking bird - lucky you!

  2. I have never seen a mocking bird either! You are so lucky :)

    My fridge is in desperate need of a good cleaning. That is something I have been avoiding for too long.

    Thanks for joining Thankful Thursday this week!
