Thankful Thursday

Another Thankful Thursday and a chance to appreciate our blessings.

1. Thankful for our dentist! Dilly has two front teeth again, albeit temporary, so she can return to College on Tueaday to finish classes and exams.

2. Thankful for the time in Hazelwood yesterday afternoon, the forest was so peaceful and the time out with Dilly was good too.

3. Thankful for my folks' hoarding tendencies! Dad produced a 'spare' walking stick for Dilly and she is getting around much better now and falling over less. Also I've noticed that people notice the stick and give her space and hold doors for her, which is handy as she can't do doorhandles, and pushing.

4. Thankful for more sunshine and the leaves finally bustin' out all over! (Where's that quote from?? C'mon!)

5. This is rather different: I'm thankful for brave people who go out to see how it is in distant parts of our World and bring the information home to us so that we can understand how life is for others. There's want, need, distress, bravery, endurance, heroism and much else out there we need to be aware of. You never know when you will impact someone else.
Nicholas D. Kristof is one such person.

And finally Happy Earth Day to everyone!
Its a beautiful planet we've been given to mind!

Well, trees are busting out all over in Oklahoma I think? And here in Somerset. I'm glad to hear that Dilly has crossed yet another hurdle or two; it takes courage to use a walking stick, so good on her. Have a great day.

Hope Dilly does well back at school. Glad the walking stick is helping.

It is beautiful here...the flowers are more magnificent than I have seen them in years.

Blessings, hugs, and prayers,

It is actually quite a lovely day here, as well! And I am thankful for that! (And ... for the fact that I don't have to come to work tomorrow! Yay!)

Happy Earth day right back at you. Enjoying a blustery cloudy day but I love those so it's the perfect day for me.

Back in the blogging world once more and looking forward to chatting with you more!

If you get a chance, stop by and participate in some of my giveaways, most of them end this weekend! I'd love to have you join!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I wonder if one of your dogs would like to become a service dog for Dilly? They could push doors open for her, and keep people from crowding. I'm glad you had a nice outing with her, and that her smile is back in place. Have I thanked you for your delightful package? I love it! I hope I can learn to crochet as well as you.
