Thankful Thursday


Today I am thankful…

  • For the great long weekend I shared with my brother and beautiful niece, Melody.

  • That I finally learned how to do a passable job of styling Ashley’s curly, wavy hair. Thanks for the lessons, Miss Amy!

  • For the quiet day at the office today. Lots of folks are on vacation and that means I can finally get some work done.

  • For Einstein sun-dried tomato bagels with low fat veggie schmear – yum!

  • That I have little baby cucumbers – lots and lots of them – in my vegetable garden. And my parsley is growing like a weed. I can already taste the marinated cucumber salad I am going to make!

  • That I have now seen bright yellow Goldfinches in my yard 5 days in a row.

  • That I actually convinced Chip to put on a tux jacket, pleated shirt, and bow tie for his senior class picture. He’s so handsome!

  • That today is the launch of a new website for which I will be writing twice a week. The new site is 5 Minutes for Special Needs. The team of 10 writers has a ton of great information and insight to share. Check it out today beginning at noon. My articles will appear each Sunday and Wednesday.

  • That Corey will be coming home from his two week camp this Saturday. I’ve missed his very annoying but also charming personality.

  • That Miss Wheelchair Virginia has agreed to an interview for this blog. Look for the entry soon!

I saw three Goldfinches today right in front of my car, sitting in the street. I love them.

Just doing a little late-night (early morning?) surfing and found your blog through another's. Wow! I am impressed and will definitely be back.

Please come and visit anytime. And, btw, I'd love to join in writing for the Five Minutes bunch if ever another voice is wanted.
