Giving Thanks Friday (on a Monday): Spring Edition

This week I am thankful for: 

new season ushering us to rebirth and hope restored.     

Raindrops, for without the rain there would be no blooms.    


An afternoon with my daughter at the local bulb farm where pansies and violas dwell beside broccoli and lettuce starts - and the star of the show:  the lovely daffodils.  (Sadly I cannot bring the daffodils indoors due to allergy issues but I was happy to purchase a bouquet for a friend.  I did, however, bring home a couple violas and some broccoli starts.) 

A pair of ducks visiting from across the road.  I love how they travel side by side, always together, always chattering.    


The first baby calf of the spring season that I saw today.  Mama was dutifully licking her little one as they stood side by side - oh the sweetness!  

Fresh creamy white throw pillows to brighten the living room without pollen : )

Despite today's rain in the Pacific Northwest today, spring can dwell in my heart all year long



What are you thankful for?

May your week be filled with wonder, laced with peace and bursting with love...

(Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good: his love endures forever. Psalm 118:1) 



  1. Good morning, lovely friend! How are you? You have been on my heart and in my thoughts :)

    As always, your post was a delight to read. I am always amazed at everything we can give thanks for. So thankful for you! Hugs!

  2. I do love your Giving Thanks posts. They always lift my spirit and set my mind to look for the blessings God is pouring into my own life--like my incredible husband, the gigantic spiritual growth I am seeing in my daughter, and the multitude of wildlife that comes to our porch to eat sunflower seeds. Thank you, Mindy!

  3. Today I'm thankful for overtime which will be much needed added income. Have a blessed week.
