Giving Thanks Friday


This week I am thankful for:

Tender hearts that are moved to action to help those in need, who give so generously of their time, talents and resourses. 

The beautiful melodies the birds sing to me each morning and the rustle of the bamboo as they nest at night. 

The whistle of the train and the rumble it makes on the tracks and my Grandad who collected trains... 

The dedication of our daughter to being healthy and fit and the example she sets.  (She just registered for her first half marathon!)  

Sunshine that has arrived here this very day and, if the forecast is correct, should be here for many days.

What are you thankful for?

May your weekend be filled with many reasons to give thanks!

EDIT:  A reason I am trying to be thankful for is the departure of Google reader.  A new reason to be thankful is the addition of Bloglovin!  I successfully switched over the blogs I read and hope you will follow me there to read along or sign up for posts to be delivered by e-mail.  Thanks so much!

  4. Hi Mindy. I am thankful for a wonderfully restful long weekend and a very fun celebration of Canada Day. I love my country and feel so thankful to live here.

    I'd love to join bloglovin but I'm having a hard time getting registered. This is the second go round for me and I just can't seem to get on there. They don't seem to want me, lol..I'm so tech challenged but I will keep trying.

    1. Glad you had restful and long weekend - we all need time away to refresh and renew. I hope you eventually get bloglovin' to work. Maybe it was just a fluke that I got it to work haha...
