This is Memorial Day weekend in the US, which began in around 1868 as a day on which women used flowers to decorate the graves of Civil War soldiers who had fallen in battle. Originally called Decoration Day, it evolved to include decorating the graves of all family members. Once celebrated every May 30 (when flowers were in bloom, so before those pop-up stores that sell plastic flower arrangements), it became a national holiday in 1971 and was given the workplace-friendly date of the last Monday in May. It is also the unofficial beginning of summer.
I am thankful for those who gave their lives for the freedom of our country.
I am thankful for ancestors who make up the many branches of our family tree.
And I am thankful that winter is over and summer is here, officially or unofficially!
Join in the Ten Things of Thankful blog hop and share your thankfuls.

Wasn't it Christmas just a couple of weeks ago? How is it that we're almost half a year away from there already?
When our lives are soooo busy that time seems to fly by, it's all the more important to take a few minutes to find the thankfuls in our world. Write them on a notepad. Send them in a text to yourself. Reflect on them. Write a post about them. Share them.
This week's Ten Things of Thankful blog hop is open and waiting for you to join us. What are you waiting for?

This week's twist on a thankful list comes to you from my car. Here are Ten Things of Thankful for items I keep in my car:
1. My movie blanket. Haven't been to a movie in over a year, but when the theater re-opens, I will be ready! What do you mean, you don't have a movie blanket? This a terrific item to take into a movie theater, because movie theaters are always cold and if I'm watching a scary movie, I can hide under it.
2. A backscratcher.
|Telescoping backscratcher = da bomb|
3. Disposable gloves. Originally because of Covid and forever after because I never want to put gasoline in my car again without one on my hand.
4. Face masks.
5. Hamilton soundtrack.
6. Tire gauge.
8. Reusable shopping bags for going to Aldi.
9. A hoodie.
10. Straws and napkins.
What's in your car for which you can be thankful? Got snacks? What else? Write up your Ten Things of Thankful and join us this weekend!

You know, thankful lists don't necessarily have to be centered on your week. Here's an idea: name ten books you are thankful that you read. I'll go first:
Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume
Charlotte's Web by E.B. White
Mrs. Piggle Wiggle by Betty MacDonald
Little House In The Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
And Ladies Of The Club by Helen Hooven Santmyer
A Is For Alibi by Sue Grafton
A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith
The Egg And I by Betty MacDonald
A Bargain For Frances by Russell Hoban
Ramona The Pest by Beverly Cleary
Eight of the ten on this list led me to other books by the same author, so these ten titles represent dozens of books, and a little bit of each of these have helped to make me who I am now.
