TToT - 6/09/17

Ten Things of Thankful

Welcome to Ten Things of Thankful!

We gather here each weekend to share our posts about the things we are thankful for in our lives, and sometimes just to report that we've survived a difficult week; when we start focusing on the positives and the silver linings, we are able see that life is good. We also encourage each other by sharing pieces of our own journey. The people who participate in TToT are a truly awesome bunch from all age groups and all walks of life; I hope you'll join us and invite your blog friends to do the same, everyone is welcome!

At Ten Things of Thankful we believe that there are many little things in our lives to be thankful for each day as well as the big things that stand out. Keep in mind that you are not required to list ten things if you can't come up with that many, nobody is keeping score, just do the best you can!  You'll find that once you get started, more things tend to pop into your head! There is no specific format required for your post, you are encouraged to do it your way. Variety makes it interesting!  :-)

This week's TToT link-up will open shortly after midnight (Central Time) on Thursday night, and will remain open until Tuesday night, so you have plenty of time to work on your post.

Please visit as many of the links as possible, sharing your thoughts is what this group is all about; and PLEASE check back next week for new links that were added later, those folks will appreciate your comments too!

Thank you for your part in making our Ten Things of Thankful blog such a blessing,

Please take a moment to answer the following question in the comments section below. It's a fun way for us to get to know each other a little better.  If your mind had the capacity to retain only three images, one each of a person, a place, and a thing, what images would you choose to keep?


  1. If I could only save three images, I would choose one of my beloved Papa Bear with his beautiful smiling eyes, one of a gorgeous ocean sunset, and one of my sweet furkids gathered around us in the evenings. I wanted to save one of my children too, but I realized that their faces have been engraved in my heart since the day they were born. <3

  2. One person, my Sweetie. One place, the view from the top of a mountain in Switzerland. One thing, my Bible, open to Psalm 51.

  3. You do ask difficult questions, my friend. Right now the person would be my infant granddaughter because love, peace and hope are wrapped up in her. The place is the ocean, a beach, the waves and sand (as if you couldn't guess) and the thing? Hmmmm. I'll have to let you know.

    1. I love your person and place choices, Val! Both are beautiful and bring you peace and joy. The thing choice is maybe harder, so many options it boggles the mind! :-)

  4. Person - My husband
    Place - Yellowstone August 10, 2013 when almost all our family surprised me by joining us on a vacation on a very special day
    Thing - A copy of a blessing that was given to me on February 25, 1973 and was recording in writing

    1. Wonderful choices, Pat! Having grown family together is truly the most joyful event for a mother! The blessing sounds perfect, have you about it on your blog? I would like to know more.
