TTOT and the dog days of summer 

I’m on a roll submitting, meeting deadlines, and writing a lot! Then it comes to the end of the week when I can share all the bucket full of thankfuls. I’m so thankful you are here dear readers. ❤️

I’m so thankful that my muse keeps whispering in my ear and I keep writing. It’s my life’s blood on this digital paper and I appreciate you being here to read whatever my mind can conjure up.

I’m thankful for meeting my deadlines for linkups, submissions, and continuing on with my blogging challenge. I linked up with a lovely writer who’s word prompts have inspired some amazing menories for me. I took a brief hiatus from the weekly prompt, but now I’m making the commitment to get back at it. 

I’m thankful for the beautiful dog days of summer. Today I just lounged, laughed, and loved with my family. Tis this is what life is really all about, love the ones your with. ❤️

I’m thankful for the positive responses I’ve had with reaching out and connecting with old friends. Time and distance play a big role in the way life can disconnect you. But to know I was being missed as much, as I was doing the missing is a fabulous feeling indeed! ?

I’m thankful for having my favourite spot to sit and read or just look out at the water. It brings me such peace in my day when I need it the most.  

I’m thankful for hiking in wonderful places in my neighbourhood with my kids. Seeing the thrill of discovery on their faces and satisfaction for completing a tough trail is all the reward I’ll ever need in their smiles. ?

I’m thankful for getting to read in the gorgeous sunshine today. I didn’t fret about housework or laundry I just relaxed and let the words wash over me like a much needed shower. 

I’m thankful for parks, playgrounds, and happy kids. They love adventuring and being outdoors as much as me. We go to the park and play, use our imaginations, and I sit on my swing and can fly in the air for hours. 

I’m thankful for my continuing fitness journey and seeing the pounds and inches of my depression weight melt away. I call it that as   that’s how I gained it. I feel so much better having my morning shakes and utilizing that energy to get caught up on my projects. 

Most of all I’m thankful to Lizzy’s and the Ten Things of Thankful family she’s created here on every corner of the globe. Uniting us through our words, memories, and glittering, sparkling love. ?

    Today I am grateful to you, Jeanine! I just saw a message that you left on my website… more then one month ago. For me, today was a “bad” day and… your words started my engines again.
    Yes, today I am thankful to you!
    Thank you for the last month’s words and for this article, too 🙂

    What wonderful things to be thankful for. It’s great that you’re thankful for the “small” things, because really it’s those things that are actually the most important of them all.
