Thankful Thursday #2

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; 
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom"
~Marcel Proust

First of all, I have to say that I'm THANKFUL that others joined in with me last week, & that a few of you said you're going to join in the future.  I would love to see this link grow & grow... all thanks to gratitude.  A thankful heart is always something beautiful.

So let's look at this week...

Thankful 01.15.15

ONE // Knitting for everyone
I am thankful for this scarf.  It gets battled over.  I made this for Ricky one year to match a hat his daughter knitted for him about 10 years ago. It is the WARMEST scarf - which is why I wear it... & the hubs gets mad at me because MINE MINE MINE MINE MINE... I say we all share in good knitting... especially on zero degree days.

TWO // Games
Nothing like a good game to get people involved.  We started with just me, Ricky & the young guy covering his eyes (I could barely watch myself)... & then before I knew it, all the kids were circles waiting to see who would be the one to knock it down.  For the record - not me.  Games are always my favorite.

THREE // Audiobooks
I stopped at the library last Friday to see if they had any audiobooks I can use. I like free.  Then I found these little things call Playaway where the book is on a little 'walkman' sort of thing. I love it. I have put it in my pocket all week at work & walked around listening.... I am now hooked.

FOUR // Sweet faces in meetings
We had a church meeting one night & when you look over & see these sweet eyes looking at you, how can you not be thankful for that?  This is one loved little girl.

FIVE // Cozy Day... especially after a game
I am always thankful for a calm day where I don't have to put on makeup & its just relaxing & comfy.  Ricky & Harvey didn't rest until after the UK game was over... & thank goodness they won... it probably wouldn't have been a cozy day otherwise.

SIX // Hospitals
As much as I was in shock at seeing patients literally lined in the hallways of the ER - & literally watching an older lady pass away right in the middle of the chaos (I'm not even joking) - I am thankful for the help they can give.  Mom was in the hospital this week & she was surrounded by really kind nurses that gave her wonderful attention.  I told mom that while she was laying in the hallway, I guess we still need to be thankful - there are people laying on dirt floors across the world that aren't getting any assistance for health.

SEVEN // Goodbye Christmas... kinda...
I'm glad my Christmas decorations are all down... if only we can get the tree down ...

EIGHT // Soft yarn
I made another drop stitch scarf, but this time, I used some super soft yarn.  I love this one.  Love the neutral colors as well. I can wear this baby with anything.

What are you thankful for this week?
Feel free to share the word & link up with me...


  1. I love your knitting stuff. I looked up the video on the drop stitch scarf. It looks pretty involved. I may have to try it soon. Yours is so pretty.

  2. I'm sorry you are still dealing with your health issues but thankful that your mom is getting some wonderful treatment! Hope she's feeling better soon!

  3. I love this link up! I joined in today. I love cozy days, too. I kind of wish I was having one right now. :)

  4. I hope your mom is feeling better and recovering!! your positivity is always refreshing!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  5. Oh I love thankful posts!! I am thankful for sunshine (when it chooses to come out :), animals, and fuzzy socks that I live in during the winter!

  6. I tried knitting a few times and never finished anything but I have a scarf a friend of mine made for me and I love it. Too hot to wear down here but it's the one I take with me when I travel somewhere cold! I'm loving audio books. I'll have to see if my library has that because the cds I just can't do.

  7. We just took our tree down on Friday and it was SO dead. hahaha

    I hope your mom is feeling better!

  8. I love all your knit scarves. Have yet to finish the one I've been working on for oh about 2 months now. You inspire me....

  9. I hope I linked up correctly???
