Question of the Day #512

I'd like to thank Greg C. for inspiring me to focus on the positive. Every week, he posts Thankful Thursdays and lists what he's thankful for.

I'm not feeling well today, so focusing on the good stuff is a great idea. Here's what I'm thankful for:

1. My fairy goddaughter and her parents, who give really good hugs.
2. My friends, who never waffle when it comes to how they feel about me.
3. H, who would never leave me without an airport pickup.
4. Sunday's upcoming Easter dinner.
5. Tally's story and the fact that she's finally emerging.
6. Work. And hopefully more work.
7. The many walks on the beach I'll be taking.
8. My roommate, for tolerating my soon to be ever-presence.
9. Resilience.
10. The strength to get up. Again.

Anybody want to join me on the Thankful Thursday train?



  1. If I start getting thankful, it'll be pretty hard to stop. A few things:

    1. Unfailing love and support from my family and dear friends.
    2. My nephews for being hilarious and adorable, and the darndest things kids say.
    3. Kindness.
    4. My education.
    5. Taking time to get to know myself and learning to forgive and love myself.
    6. Great teachers.
    7. The beauty of the Life and this great Universe.
    8. The ability to be conscious and experience it all!

    Thanks, Suz! Oh, and lastly, good health. And dark chocolate. and red wine. and all things delicious!

  2. Gosh I love being positive and thankful! What a great idea - Thankful Thursdays! Here's what I'm thankful for today:

    1. Thursdays.
    2. Thursday happy hours.
    3. Finally awesome weather so that I can go sit outside during today's Thursday happy hour.
    4. My job that I love SO very much.
    5. My awesome husband who makes me a much better person than I am without him. He rules. And he's cute too. :-)
    6. Having a little extra fat around my waist, because that means I have plenty to eat.
    7. Bunnies. Today is one of my bunnies' birthdays. He's 5. Here's to 10 more Jackson!
    8. Travel. It's what I'm always looking forward to. And I'm really psyched about my next trip to China which begins Monday. And Vegas 2 weeks from today.
    9. Complaining about family - because that means we have family to complain about.
    10. Spring. I love all the flowers and things popping up right now. It's so awesome.
    11. Shoes. Sorry, but I just love shoes.
    12. Wine.
    13. Health.
    14. Above all else, I am thankful for being one of the luckiest people on this entire planet. I have all I have ever wished for and am so truly blessed. Lately I think to myself, "is someone going to pinch me soon and this dream going to end." Remind me of this next time I'm down in the dumps OK??

    Hope you all have as much to be thankful for as I do.

  3. Susan thank you so much for joining in. I am sorry I haven't been visiting much lately but I have been super busy. I made a promise to myself though that I would stop each Thursday and be thankful for all that I have in this world. I know there are those out there who don't believe as I do that the blessings come from God but isn't it better to be positive instead of negative no matter what you believe. We aren't judged by our beliefs but by our actions. Attitude is everything. Thanks again, you know you are always welcome.

  4. I just want to give one more super big THANK YOU to my dear friend, I, (not me, but "I" for short), for changing the course of my life with her generosity and life wisdom. She's mentor, family and great friend all rolled into one. I love her!

    And I know it's corny, but I'm thankful for all life's little miracles.
