Thankful Time

LS :

I'm doing this post a day earlier, just in case I have to take time off from the computer tomorrow. I've hurt my neck and right now it's protesting at my sitting here looking at the pc screen.

This week I'm thankful for the time to stop and smell the flowers. Ok, it's just a figure of speech LOL! I didn't exactly do that, simply because there is only grass where I live. Not that I'm not thankful for grass...I am! The grassy greenery is so soothing to the mind and the eyes too.

I was looking through my files for some flower pictures for Mona's Mommy and I found these. No, these pictures were not taken by me. My photography skill is next to zero LOL! These pictures were taken by a friend at a local garden festival.


I've forgotten how beautiful Mother Nature's gifts are!






Happy:

I'm thankful for the opportunity to say again how thankful I am for so many wonderful friends. Isn't it true we can never say enough of that? Recently, we've lost yet another friend, Girl Girl. She was a sweet friend and also my first hamster friend. I'm thankful for her friendship eventhough it was just for a short time.


A candle for you, dear Girl Girl



Hope everyone is having a thankful time!

I always take time to smell the plants (literally!)- each time I go for a walk I stop and smell the plants (for you know what scents :-). Thanks for reminding us to be thankful.

Aw. I'm sorry about the loss of Girl Girl (cute name!) but it's awesome that you are able to be thankful for the time with her.

Your pics are beautiful! It seems that I never make the opportunity to get up close and personal with a lot of His majesty such as flowers.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your neck feels better.

PS: Pomegranetes are hard on the outside and you peel the skin away to find a bunch of tiny seeds. This is what you eat, they're kind of sour.

Laurie Ann said...

Praying you feel better soon! The flowers were a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day here in Mississippi. Loved them. Happy Thankful Thursday!

Mary said...

I love the beauty of creation as well! Thanks for stopping by...I see you love dogs! We live at a Dog Kennel in the woods...we get all sorts of beauties to play with!

Grammy said...

Thanks for stopping by. you can make moist heat by using a wet hand towl and placing it in a plastic bag and heating it up. but you need to use a dry towel to keep it from being to hot. But the safest way is to take a tube sock and fill it half way full of rice long or short grain. Tie or sew end together and heat in microwave 2 min. then it it starts to cool you can reheat on no more than 1 min. This always gives me relief.

God Chaser said...

Lovely pictures of flowers and may you enjoy your time smelling the flowers.

Latte said...

It's so important to remember appreciating the little things in life. :) Such an apt reminder in gloomy times like this - well, it could very well be an opportunity for people to slow down and smell the roses.
