Happy Thorsday, little friday and thankful thursday! If you frequent Facebook, you’ve likely seen the grassroots campaign to give thanks daily this month. I’m not participating there – because I cannot add another to-do to my list – but I think it’s fabulous. If you show up here on Thorsdays, you know that I try to cultivate a culture of thankfulness.
Evidently, my fur-girls are thankful for the lack of costumes this year. Sigh. I guess parents of two-leggers go through the same rites of passage when they don’t want to dress up anymore, huh?
Momentum, the power of positive thinking, whatever you want to call it, worked yesterday. Once the train left crankville and headed to happytown, it really picked up speed. I got home and the Knight took pictures (tomorrow!), even if he has no future as a fashion photographer. Then, I had a stack of packages, including some leopard pumps I’d been craving for weeks, a potential dream bag – so much so I’m pondering ordering it in another color too – and a special care package from gMarie. No photos of that either, because I had a full evening ahead, what with dog walking duties, a meeting and playing meals on wheels for the duty crew. Don’t rush to nominate me for any awards; Chief Knight was running with his best pal/Asst. Chief and our nephew was hanging out. It’s not like I drove 30 miles into nowheresville to deliver hot coffee and burgers to those at a fire!
So, I’m thankful for all the people (and dogs) in my life who make me smile. I’m thankful for cushy, comfy shoes that look good and feel good (at least while prancing around the house in between dog walking and going back out to a meeting), and no thankful post would be complete without mentioning how much we’re looking forward to beach time!
Do you celebrate Thanksgiving beyond the single day?
