Thankful Thursdays

It’s a Thursday and it’s November and that means it’s time to resurrect Thankful Thursdays. I covered a lot last year and am still thankful for all of those things – my family and my pets, my job, my hobbies and my friends. You can go back and read the archives from each week if you would like but then please come back and read this week’s installment.

Thankful Thursday Mosaic Week 1

This week I am thankful for:

  1. My right to vote. The race that was closest to my heart this week did not go the way I wanted but I am still thankful that I could vote and hold a sign for my candidate. And I am thankful that we get to do it all again in a couple of years.
  2. Foliage. I live in a beautiful area and the foliage this year (as evidenced by some of my pictures lately) has been spectacular.
  3. Spin night at the library. Once a month I host a spinning get together with a wonderful group of people. This week we brought a new spinner into the fold and I’m thankful for what she will bring to our group.

I hope some of you will join me and participate in Thankful Thursdays this month.

  1. Great list! Today I am thankful for the rain even though I’m not enjoying the dreariness. We’re starting into drought again and this is the steady rain we need.

  2. When I was a poll worker the magnatude of voting really hit me. To this day I am in awe of our system. As nutty as it gets it is still the best system there is. Something to truly be thankful for!

  3. I love it when you do ‘Thankful Thursdays!’ So glad it’s back … might have to get motivated and do it on my own blog. I think we all forget what a privilege it is to be able to exercise our right to vote, especially with all the negative campaign ads that proliferate the closer we get to election day! Awfully sure that I’m “in the fold” … aren’t you? LOL

  4. Wonderful list, Carole. I just came in from a long walk in short sleeves, so I’m thankful for the unseasonably warm weather!

  5. I like your list. The race I most cared about this year also went other than the way I wanted…and I fully expected that. But I still went out to vote, because I consider it not only a right and a privelege, but a duty to be a part of the process. I can’t stand when someone complains vocally and then admits that they didn’t vote.
    I am thankful to have parents who have realized that their house is getting to be too much for them and have decided to start the process of moving to assisted living well before my sister and I have to “convince” (or force) them to do it. Especially because they live in Florida and I am in Maryland and my sister in Colorado.
