I am doing 'thankful' instead of 'throwback' this morning.......... 

1)  Jim is so appreciative of anything I do for him, and recently he told me he didn't know what he would do without me.  I am thankful that I can help him.

2)  I am very thankful for air conditioning.  The long, hot summer is already upon us.

3)  I see so many things in my children, doing the things, with their children, that we did with them when they were growing up. Makes me think we did something right.

4)  We really didn't think we would like a Keurig, but we are loving it.  The task now is to find the brand of coffee that we love.  We got 60 cups with the maker, and it is going to take a while to find just the right one.  We neither one like our coffee strong, and several of these are very much so.

5)  I am very thankful for my church, my Pastor, who preaches the Word of God, and only that.  Some churches around my area seem to have a 'show', and that just isn't the way I like to worship.  To each his own, right?

I prefer to be positive and be around positive people.  I am on the downhill of life and I choose to live it as happy as possible.  When the Lord comes for me, I will be smiling and thankful to go home with Him.


  1. What a wonderful post this morning! I love your background and header too (well..I love all them,smiles)--Thanks for the smiles. Blessings

  2. Enjoyed your thankfuls, my friend...
    We like Starbucks or Coffee House Kcups...
    Just a note...
    We don't use the hot chocolate cups...
    They tend to clog up the machine and require cleaning...
    We use instant and just use the hot water from the Keurig. : )

  3. Great post! Your positive way of thinking comes through all the time - not just on a thankful post. :)

  4. Love your uplifting post, Linda, and that colorful first photo. The blue pump just pops out and makes the picture! Send that strong coffee down to me! LOL I like mine strong. They make lots of medium and light coffees, so I'm sure you will find the right one. I also like the Earl Gray Tea, and of course, the hot chocolate. We also found a spiced cider we liked. Enjoy it!! Jim IS a lucky man - glad he knows it! :)

  5. Great post!! I love the very last paragraph. I think it's so important to be happy and enjoy our life. We never know what tomorrow brings....

  6. Wonderful post, Linda! Thank God for all those things, and yes, for air conditioning, as the temperatures get so humid! Your header is gorgeous, and I love your serene green background.

  7. A very nice list.... A loving mate, a wonderful family, a man of God in the pulpit, air conditioning and good coffee. You have many blessings to be thankful for. ♥
