TToT - 11/03/17

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 an uplifting experience!

Note: My daughter is here this week visiting and installing new flooring in our house so I won't have computer time until that's finished.  I am so sorry for the delay in my responses, I will be back up to speed and catching up here once she's returned home. :-)

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.  We are now in November and it will soon be Thanksgiving time in the USA.  Looking back over the year, what is one of the things that you are most thankful for in addition to family and friends?  


  1. Right now i am thankful i can still work, we need for me to be able to do that.

  2. 1. I'm thankful that my grandson is now getting better. 2. I'm thankful that I can have a hot bath - maybe I'll leave it till tomorrow though, when I'll need it after looking after another grandchild. 3. I'm thankful I got to the writing for wellbeing session this afternoon and 4. That there were some inspiring people there who helped my creativity. 5. I'm thankful that a friend came for coffee this morning - so enjoyable.. 6. I'm thankful that it didn't rain today - the sky was amazing with lovely blues 7. I'm thankful for the sound of water from the water feature in the garden - it always sets my heart at ease 8. I'm thankful for the picture that I see when at my desk to remind me of someone lost to us - but not for ever 9. I'm thankful for finding the ingenuity to take the instep out of a pair of shoes that were hiding in the wardrobe, bringing them to a new life and making them comfortable to wear. 10. I'm thankful that I've thought what to cook for dinner - it's always a decision I find hard to make.

    1. And here is my blog for more stuff....

  3. I am thankful for this year. So much happened to me that I never could have imagined. So much that has been so wonderful. Travel. New Niece. Writing and publishing. Quite a year.

    1. Congratulations, especially fo the new niece and the publishing!

  4. I am thankful that I got chosen as a contributor for Black Cats Tell All which is now being sold on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Have fun with your daughter- I hope we get to see a photo of your new floors.

  5. I'm thankful for our move, which is proving to be a real blessing for our family. Of course, change is hard and we miss our friends and being farther away from one daughter and grandkids, but it was the right move for us, and I'm thankful for that realization.


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