Some Thankful Inspiration

Some of the heartwarming thanks given in comments to the Thankful Survey:

Today I'm thankful for ideas that cross my mind, and for having/finding a chance to express them.

Being with my kids... Being able to bring them to places that put smiles to their faces.

I am thankful for the things that break me down because I gain strength, wisdom and a greater understanding of myself.

Being healthy and having a healthy family. It is something to be thankful for everyday, as it can change at any time.

The people who make the teabags I use and the people who grow the oats I eat every morning.

Being able to have a friend willing to listen to the silliness of my life.

Thankful for the opportunity to be inspired daily by the creative minds of others.

I'm thankful for the simple joy of watching my cat thoroughly enjoy the warm breeze from the open window!

What are you thankful for today?

  5. I like the one about the opportunity to be inspired by others, I think that's beautiful!! And the first one is quite grandiose as well. I'm thankful today for family and tea. been a rough week for my Family and with all the sadness that comes with loss, I'm very much enjoying my nightly cup of tea where I can be alone with my thoughts and think about my Grandma.

    PS- I haven't gone to the LC site, thank you for sending me, I definitely will check it out tomorrow!!! And the necklace, I know - it's so awesome, huh? I guess I should have specified that it was a DIY someone ELSE did not me, haha. BUT, though I didn't do it I might even Blog and show what it is (you'll be amazed) because it'd be so easy to copy.

  6. Great sentiments. Today, I'm thankful for you stopping by my blog :) xo
