Three On Thursday

I’m continuing to post about things I’m thankful for on Thursdays for the month of November. I think about being thankful every day but it’s nice to take some take to acknowledge it in a special way at this time of year.

  1. I’m thankful for the Thanksgiving Luncheon that was yesterday at the Council on Aging where I work. There were 65 seniors in attendance and we had volunteers from the police department and town hall to help with serving and cleaning up. This was the first big event for our new cook and she did a fabulous job cooking all of those turkeys and sides. The best part for me was sharing this moment with my colleagues and just being with the seniors that attend, hearing their stories, seeing them enjoy a slice of pie, and wishing them a Happy Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite days at the COA and I’m truly thankful to be a part of something that brings joy to a lot of people.
  2. I’m thankful for one week ago tonight when Dale and I babysat Jackie. We took him out to dinner, which was really fun, and then brought him back to our house where we played and hung out. He’s quite good at playing by himself and it’s so fun to watch him do that. He eventually fell asleep on the couch and when Dale went to bed I tucked Jackie in next to him while I waited up for his Mom and Dad to come get him. When I went in to check on him he had snuggled up to Dale and they were both sound asleep and it filled my heart with so much gratitude to see that.
  3. I’m thankful that I’ll be celebrating Friendsgiving this Saturday at Sean’s house. I know it will be a wonderful time of food and fun and wine and friends. You just can’t go wrong with that combination!

There are so many moments in a week to be thankful for if we just stop and look for them.

  1. Those sound like great moments! The first one makes me think I should work harder to be part of the community here (which starts by really learning Papiamento). I’ve always wanted to be part of something like that. Thanks for reminding me. 😉

  2. That was one great list. Hard to pick a favorite, but I’d have to say the snuggling…if I *had* to choose a moment. My relationship with one of my grandparents was the most important in my life. My Gram was my best friend, until she passed a few weeks before my wedding. Whenever I hear of a grandchild/grandparent bond like you often share, I think of how grateful I am that I had 26 really, really tight years.
    And cheers to Friendsgiving!

  3. Thanksgiving meals can produce some wonderful moments and it’s great to hear about so many seniors enjoying a meal together and a great sense of community. I can also imagine that the lovely feeling of seeing loved ones sleeping peacefully and safely under your roof. Some truly heartwarming moments!

  4. Wonderful (and like Carolyn above if I HAVE to pick a favorite it would be Jackie and Dale snuggling in sleep). All of these are just so good Carole!

  5. It’s not hard to find gratitude in all our lives but this time of year the ideas come to the surface and we are wrapped in love and joy. Thanks for your post, Carole.

  6. I need to bottle this thankfulness focus of November and open it up in February and March when there is not much of anything to be thankful for!

  7. Wonderful moments, Carole, and I am so glad that you were self aware enough to note them and be grateful. I hope you have many more this coming week. It is the season to hone our gratitude.

  8. I know Three on Thursday is the thing. could it be Thankful Thursday? Gratitude is so powerful … proven health benefits. maybe even for just a month (or two)?
