Thankful for Life, Including Plants!


Developing gratitude for even the smallest of things has been a gradual process.

Truly, at this stage of  the game, I am deeply grateful for every breath of life.

So on this beautiful Sunday, I want to think about some things I'm grateful for.



Grateful for my darling sweet pea baby granddaughter who fills my heart to the very brim with love.

Grateful for my adult son and daughter and their spouses.

Grateful my husband is alive and well
 and planning lots of spring projects.
 
Grateful for good health, nice meals and sunlight.

One more thing, while visiting a middle school classroom recently, the beautiful flowering geranium shown in this post was blooming in a window.


 So I am very grateful for lovely plants like this and can hardly wait for farmers markets to open so I can buy some for the window boxes and front steps.


It's so good to be alive and so very, very gratifying to be thankful.

BESIDES YOUR FAMILY AND LOVED ONES, NAME ONE OTHER THING YOU ARE THANKFUL FOR RIGHT NOW.

Well, my first item of gratitude has to be for my salvation, which was purchased for me by Jesus Christ long ago! On a more "human" note, I will have to say today that I am thankful for a safe trip we took on Saturday, to another place nearly 200 miles away. The weather was perfect, the mountain views were breathtaking, and we were safe on the entire trip. Very late getting to bed now, but very thankful we were able to make the trip, as it was our oldest grandson's 15th birthday! Love that young man! :-)

Beautiful post. I am grateful for so many things. Most of all right now, that God is restoring my health. I wake up every day renewed after my surgery.

Hello from Spain: interesting message of thanks. I am also grateful to life and destiny for allowing me to meet my husband. He is the most wonderful person in the world. Plants also always bring joy and are a symbol of life. Keep in touch

Thankful for the return of spring and for the little robin hoping around outside my window as I write this message. Thankful for the sunshine that is streaming through the same window. Thankful for living in a beautiful place where we are free to look out our windows in peace.

Enjoy your day, Susan.

I love geraniums, they remind me of my visit to Polly's Pancakes in Franconia Notch, NH. Their window boxes were overflowing with them.
