TToT - 8/11/17

Ten Things of Thankful

IMPORTANT NOTE:  I will be out of town Aug. 12 thru Aug. 19, so I may not have the opportunity to comment on your posts until I return, but the link-ups are pre-scheduled and will be up on time. Please drop by and visit each other! - Josie Two Shoes :-)

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 you had a three-day weekend and sufficient funds, where/how would you like to spend it?


  1. If I had a three-day weekend and magically fast transportation, I would like to spend it with my sisters at the lake, catching up on our lives.

  2. I hope you have a wonderful time with your daughter. For a three day weekend, I would just choose to not go anywhere, there is no place I would rather be than ho,e with my cats -and hubby :)

    1. I am always purrfectly happy at home with my hubby and furkids too, Ellen. I missed them so much when I was away!

  3. A three day trip to anywhere that has mountains would be lovely. We don't get to see mountains.

    Bon Voyage!

    1. We spent a week in the mountains of Southern Colorado a year ago in June, and it was so peaceful and sweet. I am ready to go back anytime! It is very VERY flat here. Where is your favorite mountain place to visit?

  4. San Diego used to be our go-to weekend spot. Now that we've moved, I guess we'll have to find another place--maybe Zion National Park? The Narrows is my favorite hike ever!

    1. I Googled The Narrows and can see why you would love to hike there... it looks amazing! It's funny how many things a move impacts in our lives, isn't it? But I love new adventures and seeing what God has in store!


We're so glad you're here! Please say hi and share your thoughts with us!
