Thankful Thrsday

Linking up with Dayle at Simple Pleasures

The week's been great - busy, fun, laid back. I have so many neat things in my world....things that make life interesting and full....things like.



-Squirrels. They're everywhere and so fun..We were hiking when this little grey one started following us. When we stopped. He stopped. When we moved...he moved. It started getting freaky so my dgt. yelled at him to quit following us. He jumped onto a tree....and my dgt.  snapped a pic of him sticking out his tongue. Too funny.
-Rain. It rained for two days and brought a cool breeze...and perfect temps. And the bonus...it's going to be like this right through the weekend!
-Close friends......there's nothing better than laughing with a buddy...especially the kind of laughing that's hard to stop.....
-Purpose....met with someone I'll be running events with. Plans are in the works for the two of us to run community forums on hope at the end of Sept.....
-Peace...mostly for Him never giving up on me...never turning away. Some people will come and go...but He never leaves...never lets go....and loves me just because.....

I couldn't help but laugh because I had similar incident with a squirrel when my family and I were taking a walk by the beach...It just made me froze! Until now, we have a good laugh everytime we thought about the incident..of me running away from the "critter" I called it.

He really made everything interesting!!! Blessings.

I love your TT list! Rain brought cooler weather my way, too.

Your squirrel picture is hilarious!

What a wild squirrel story!! Maybe people have been feeding him a lot, so he has taken to begging?? I clicked on the picture to make it bigger, unbelievable!! Really cool that you were able to get a picture!

You are so right He never leaves us - ever.
