Thankful Thursday

This is not a “new” idea.  Thankful Thursday has been around for years.  Back when I was regularly posting on my personal blog I often put up a Thankful Thursday post. I searched the internet looking for the originator of the idea but it is hosted on so many different blogs I couldn’t begin to guess who gets the credit for it.  My personal blog doesn’t get posted on anymore but I’ve been thinking a lot about gratitude lately.  I’m going to be putting up a Thankful Thursday post regularly on this blog.  Sometimes it will be about reading or blogging and other times it will be more personal like today’s post.


Thankful Thursday


I was sitting down to do this post tonight when my daughter started crying that she had hit her head.  I turned around to find her hands covered in blood.  She had been getting off the piano bench and slipped and hit her forehead on the corner of the piano.  Thankfully it was before 9 pm so she and I hurried off to InstaCare since it looked like it would need stitches.  

So for this Thankful Thursday I’m grateful for access to good medical care just a few minutes from our home. The staff at InstaCare put her right at ease and she got 3 stitches without a complaint.  I’m not a huge fan of doctors except for cases like this when they are definitely a blessing.

There is always something to be grateful for.  What are you thankful for?

I invite you to join me….  Put up your own post, leave a comment or just take a minute to think of something you are grateful for.
