Thankful Thursday

Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray
Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise
James 5:13

LS : Never thought I would be thankful for this new neighbour of mine who sings in the shower all the time. But I am! LOL! This morning I was woken up by her singing "As the deer panteth for the water" at 6.30am. It was good as I had to leave the house earlier today. If not for her singing, I would've probably woken up at my usual 7am and rushed like a mad person. And probably rushing poor Happy too on her morning routine.



I'm thankful that LS didn't go into one of her mad morning frenzies today. I don't like to be rushed, especially when it comes to potty business. Do you?

I'm thankful that LS's camera battery went flat. So that means no more pictures for the moment till she remembers to recharge it. That could be a while hehe...I'm also thankful that LS has thrown in the towel as my coach. Just heard her mumbling to herself she'll just have to make do with some old pictures. Isn't that a lot to be thankful for?

Hope everyone is having a thankful week too.

Thankful Thursday is hosted by Iris at Sting My Heart.

Abby said...

Hi, Happy...

I hate it when my Mom is rushing in the morning, too...My outside stuff is cut too short...

My Mom doesn't have a singing neighbor, just an annoying clock...

Abby xxxooo

What a cute and happy post! It must have been lovely to be awakened by someone singing a lovely song (that song actually makes me misty-eyed).

BTW, thanks for your prayers.

Sparky said...


Thankful for the neighbor that sings in the shower, eh? Well, that certainly is a thing to be thankful for when you need to be woken up early!

Happy Thankful Thursday to you!

I love this. Anyone can be happy about the obvious, but finding something that might not be so pleasant takes great thought.

Rambo said...

You and your LS are so pleasant. My G-Mom said that if singing woke her up at 6:30 in the morning she would would not be so thankful. Actually, she would use some "unpleasant" words towards that person. Have a great day!

maiylah said...

great humor, and love your perspective! :)
stay blessed ...

River said...

Changing perspective to a positive one is good for your health! My mom tries so hard to do that but she would probably have pounded on the wall if a neighbor woke her too early. Have a good day today!

love & wags,

flmom said...

Thanks for stopping by my TT and for your encouraging comments. I, too, do not like noise from neighbors, but thankfully yours was a joyful noise. :-)

Lorenza said...

Hi, Happy!
Like Abby, the clock is the one that wakes us up every morning. Silly mom sets it 10 min. earlier so we have some time to play before she goes to take a shower!
Kisses and hugs

PS sorry but I love to see your pictures. I hope LS recharges the camera batteries soon!

Charlie Daniels said...

I just don't do "rushed: anything! ;-)



Mack said...

Hi Happy, so nice to know you.

Do you mind if I ask if you're a boy or a girl, Happy?

Ripley hates it when I make him rush to potty! In fact he just ignores me.

Thanks for making me smile!

Rocks said...

Happy thankful thursday to you too! :)

Kathy C. said...

Oh, what a blessing to wake up to praise songs coming from your neighbors shower! How sweet is that? :)

What a lovely wakeup call. It's good because a dog's morning constitutional cannot be rushed. So LS has thrown in the towel heh - your training of HER is now complete Happy. Have a great weekend!

Ann said...

Only just getting to know you, but I love the image of the neighbor singing you awake with Scripture songs! It's both funny and inspiring.

the 4 Bs said...

that's good stuff to be thankful for. it's cool that you have a neighbor that can sing good. our mom sings to us, but it sounds funny to us. it makes us cock our heads and wish she would get singing lessons. we are thankful that she doesn't sing louder. hee hee


Angie said...

What a neat post! I think singing in the shower music is better than the alarm clock!!!

Moco said...

There is always something positive if you look hard enough for it.

Eric said...

Happy, you make me laugh - then I'm happy! Also happy for you the camera battery broke but I like to se your little happy face so hope it's mended soon.Wags, Eric x

Tammy said...

Hi Happy, a little something for you & LS
Love George

Chef said...

I agree, Happy. I just hate it when I have to do a running pee. Then I need a bath - 0H NO.



Hi Happy,

I did my friends post tonight and gave you all an award. You might already have it but this one is from me and it's from the bottom of me and the Mommy's hearts.
