Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

For those who may be new to the blog, "Welcome"! I hope you'll enjoy yourself while you're here.

On Thursdays, we all celebrate something called "Thankful Thursday." I share my little weekly photo collage and a gratitude list. And then you share a least one or two things from the week that you are thankful for. It might seem a little silly or cheesy, but I really think it's an important weekly ritual. I've heard it said that an "attitude of gratitude" has many health benefits, emotionally and physically. I believe it.

A few things I am thankful for this week:

-Lots of produce from the church garden
-Laughing ridiculously hard about THESE hilarious Barbie and Ken wedding pics
-Crazy carrots
-Encouraging people
-Ice cubes
-Rice you can cook in the microwave
-Nature hikes

What are you thankful for this week?

(P.S. - Don't forget to send a "Music" photo for tomorrow's Word of the Week!)

(This one is my favorite of the Barbie and Ken series from the link above. Many of the photos super "artsy" in mockery of contemporary engagement and wedding photography. SO HILARIOUS!)
