My First Official Thankful Thursday

So long, Grateful Days (Fridays)! Hello to Thankful Thursdays.
The actual day isn't important. The focus on gratitude is.
I am thankful for:
  • waking up at 4 AM this morning (you read that right!) because I had some quiet moments to myself
  • but I am even more thankful I woke up at 4 AM because that meant when my daughter Amy wandered downstairs about a half hour later to finish working on a college paper, I was up too. So, we had some time together. And I was able to tell my still-sleepy daughter that I love her and that I like her.
  • the same daughter who brought me some candy corn flavored taffy. (She works at The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. I don't do chocolate. I like my sugar with just a little color added!)

May your day be anchored in gratefulness/thankfulness.

It's worth getting up at 4 A.M. to be with your daughter! Thanks for sharing. Blessings on your weekend.

What a perfectly delightful way to begin the day. I don't do chocolate, either. I thought I was the only one!

Ooh yes, I love quiet moments and special times with the kids!

God bless!

Waking at 4 can sometimes be such a blessing - I agree. And I'm sure your daughter greatly appreciated the reminder that you LIKE her - all (grown) children need to hear that.
