Thankful Thursday


It’s been a bit of a crazy week this week, this always seems to happen in the spring when our schedule gets busier.

But that is the beauty of the Thankful Thursday, even during hectic times, there is still time each Thursday to pause and reflect upon the things you are thankful for.

I am thankful for my old, sore body.  That means that I have been out riding my bike, lifting weights, throwing baseball with my son, and walking much more.

I am thankful for a dear friend who finally succumbed to the horrible raging of breast cancer and died.  She was a strong christian women with an invincible faith.  I know she is now with Jesus.

I am thankful for the flowers I am starting to see push their way up through the ground!

I am thankful for Little Ceasesrs pizza deal.  You can pick up a large pepperoni pizza anytime, and it will be ready, you don’t need to call ahead.  Just show up, hand over $5.30 and they give you a fresh pizza to take home for dinner on a busy night!!  It was a glorious dinner, I served fresh fruit on paper plates with pizza.  No prep, and no clean up….I am thankful!

It’s a simple list this week, but it reflects a thankful heart.  God has given us much to be thankful for, and I am thankful for precious time to reflect on the good God gives us each week!


  1. Jesus and Dark chocolate… what more can a girl want!! LOL.. I love it! Sweet thankful list… It hard to be thankful when a friend dies… but when they are a christian you know they are in a better place and you rejoice that you will see them again one day! Praise the Lord! I too have a dear friend in heaven who passed away from breast cancer 9 years ago… Blessings my new friend…

  2. My kids love the hot and ready pizzas. We went to pizza hut tonight because they turned in their book it certificates. Yum!
    Sorry about your friend, but you are right..she is not sorry, she is painfree and with Jesus. Beautiful homecoming

  3. I’m sorry to hear about your friend. But how wonderful that you know where she is. May her family find comfort in that thought.

    Gotta love pizza for an easy dinner. We all need those nights every once in a while!

  4. I am sorry about your friend, but thankful she is with Christ and no longer suffering. I have been praying for her family though. I am sure she will be missed terribly. Do you know if they are christians as well?

    Are you on Twitter? I sorta started but wow life is crazy! Plus I spend too much time on Facebook. I’ll try to find you on Twitter so I can stalk you. I mean, follow you! LOL!

  5. Very well said, Sandy. It’s not very often that we take the time to write about what we’re thankful for in the place of complaining on a daily basis–thank you for reminding me of this! Blessings 😉
