Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.

Chaltes Dickens

August 15th-Thankful Sunday 



Concentrate on counting your blessings and you’ll have little time to count anything else.

Woodrow M. Kroll

I’m thankful for another week and am happy to list a few of my blessings for you to see.

First and foremost my family is all doing fine, they all remain healthy and happy. 

We had a hot and humid week with a lot of rain,, but this weekend was cooler and sunny. The humidity cleared out and we enjoyed a beautiful day by Lake Eerie visiting DD at her camper yesterday. They took us on boat rides and fed us dinner. We played some games and laughed a  lot. There was even smeo music and dancing to end the evening.  I’m so thankful some of us could safely gather before the summer ends.  

I was also able to get out for a hair cut this week.  Something that wasn’t possible a year ago.  I hope we never have to face another shut down like that again.  i know I’ll never take anything for granted again. The simple pleasures we once enjoyed have been restored and  I don’t ever want to get in that state again.

I’m thankful for a call from one of my sons out of state letting me know he has a new job and got the first shot of two shots, on his way to be fully vacinatined.

I’m thankful they all  had jobs that were not in danger because of the pandomenic.  They all have families and homes to take care of and haven’t had to worry about their jobs.

I am a very thankful person and always try to look on the brightside of things, Remember everyday might not be good, but there is something good to be found in every day when you take the time to look for it.

Count your blessings and not your problems and life will always look brighter.



Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.

Your day on the water with loved ones sounds wonderful! Yes, what a difference a year makes. I'm glad to hear your son is getting the vaccine. (Still praying mine will change his mind.)
Hope you're enJOYing a pleasure-able day!

There are many things to be thankful for if only one takes the time to stop and think about stuff
