Thankful Thursday




 "We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness." Charlie Chaplin

Didn't know what to write today. My brain is pretty much a blank...but one thing I don't want...is to let a week go by and not say thank-you. There's too much that I'm grateful for....things like...

-Spring is around the corner....it's getting darker later. Can't wait when I can get outside and smell the earth after it rains and see the green and colors again. Yeahhh.
-Updated my Deception book. I've needed to do that for awhile. Really glad it's over and done and now at now at the printers.
-Celebrated my dgt's birthday. She's turned 17. Yikes! She's an amazing girl and a great daughter. I am totally proud of the kid. oops...not supposed to call her a kid anymore!
-Asked if I'd be interested in writing a script for a film. If it goes...writing will begin in the fall.
-Mostly that life is amazing...not b/c there's anything major happening.....but b/c of His peace he embedded inside me. And this knowoing that I'm never alone. The two things gives me humungo courage to live my best life.

Good morning Nikki,
Happy Birthday to your daughter! God bless her!

I can't wait for springtime either. It's my favourite season.
This winter has been a hard one for me with health issues, yet, the blessings in my life outweigh the other rubbage.
Thank you for always sharing an encouraging word on Thursday morning. I always look forward to stopping by for your inspiration. Have a lovely day, my friend.

Blessings and joy,
Sandi

Great gratitudes today, Nikki! Sounds like there are opportunities on the horizon - how exciting!

Happy Birthday to your daughter! Hug her tight - and don't let her know that KIDS never grow up in the heart of a mother!

GOD BLESS!

I feel that way at times. Sitting here at the keyboard dying to type but not knowing what to say. But having that overwhelming urge to put something down to make myself feel better. Glad to hear things are going well for you! Hugs!!
