Ten Things of Thankful

on 28 September 2015

This is going to be a fast and furiously typed post because I have less than 30 minutes before the linkup expires with the TTOT linkup group. I missed last week as I couldn’t find the link and really the week went by in a blur I didn’t even realize it was Sunday! Have you had that kind of thing when you’ve been “catfished” into thinking it was certain day and it really wasn’t? Well as you ponder that thought I’ll get on with my thankfuls. 
I’m thankful that the week went swimmingly well and I did less complaining than I have in a long time. 

I’m thankful that I have a group I’m part of where we share our Facebook posts about learning what’s a lesson and what’s a blessing. It’s made me see the course of my day in a whole different and enlightening way. If you’d like to join up just put the #lessonsandblessings on your social media posts. 

 I’m thankful for a wonderful 10 year anniversary celebration with my dear husband. ❤️

I’m thankful I was able to pull off a big surprise of a seafood buffet and a concert plus surprising my love with cake and balloons at his work. ?

I’m thankful for an amazing evening spent rocking out with the band Trooper. Who after 40 years our still providing an entertaining, fun, and rocking experience all across Canada. ??❤️


I’m thankful for a magical night of love, laughter, and dancing with my love. We felt so carefree and had never gone out to celebrate our anniversary alone before. 

I’m thankful for our amazing sitter and her lovely dog who looked after our kids and had a blast with them. 

I’m thankful for getting to experience the Super moon lunar eclipse. Although it was cloudy I knew there was magic happening behind those clouds. I was fortunate enough to watch a live newsfeed that was streaming from the east coast. 

I’m thankful for all the pictures and video that was shared of the eclipse. Even though my view wasn’t clear I kept thinking how we’re all connected throughout the world by looking at the same moon. ???

I’m thankful for the love of my family and friends. Who no matter what calamity I’m facing in life they are there with their empowering hearts, minds, and always all encompassing love. ?

      Thank you Clark it was week full of magic, all kinds of stress to keep my fire lit under my butt! Next week I will linkup on Saturday instead of Sunday. I’m always rushing on that day and that’s the day I want to relax. ?

  5. Happy anniversary to you.
    Lately I’ve been finding myself without a TToT post on Sunday afternoon and scrambling to finish. I think it’s a sign of a well-lived life, right? 😀
    Love the moon photo – you’re right that even behind the clouds there was magic. Definitely.

      Thank you Lisa, I like that description. Yes an action packed week left me scrambling at the last minute. I didn’t want to miss out though, you’re my tribe when I’m struggling to be thankful. That moon was magical to me no matter if I got to see it’s event unfolding or not. ?

    Glad to see you enjoyed your anniversary. Some great pictures there!

  7. Happy Anniversary. Glad you had a nice one. Wasn’t that moon wonderful? I LOVED your picture of it with the clouds. You would think the headless horseman would go by.

      That’s what I thought too it was spooky, eery and beautiful. Thank you it was a wonderful anniversary with a lunar super eclipse to round out the week. ?

    I love what you say about the knowledge that there is a magical occurrence going on, even if it is obscured with clouds. I can’t really see the moon, only really a shot I saw on my TV screen, on the news the next day. I am not completely blind though and can see the moon when it is bright. I am lucky.
    Happy Anniversary to you both.

      Thank you so much, it was the feeling more than the actual seeing that was exciting too. It was an amazingly bright moon for the next couple of days. ?
