Thankful Thursday

LS:

I've missed a few thankful posts so far. But I'm thankful for the time to do one this week.

Recently on a wet and gloomy early morning, I saw a rainbow from my kitchen window. It wasn't a perfectly arched rainbow, just a fragment that disappeared into the dark rain clouds. But it'll do. It's enough to lift up my spirits. Amidst the current gloominess. I'm thankful for the rainbow.



I took this picture minutes later. The sky brightened somewhat. The rainbow was still there.


Life has not been exactly normal around here lately. Or perhaps I'm the one not being normal. That's a thought. LOL.

This sight couldn't have appeared at a better time. It's such a great reminder and comfort to me. Life can be dark and gloomy at times, but not for always. Just like the dark and gloomy clouds, they always clear and make way for the blue skies.

The rainbow? Although not always a complete and perfect arch, but always a spectrum of vibrant colours. That should be us, isn't it? It's not easy but I'm still learning.


Happy:

I'm thankful for an unexpected visitor. The doggie. I know...I know... I've been grumbling about him and haven't exactly been on my best behaviour when he was around.

Truth be told, I liked having him around. When the doggie was hanging around outside our door, I kept sniffing under the door. At times I sniffed so hard that LS said I snorted like a pig. Hee...

Although he's gone to live in his new home, I still run to the door to sniff...I guess I miss him.

LS said we should be thankful and humbled by this doggie's visit. LS said although she understands how tough a rescuer's work is, she didn't truly feel it till she experienced it. She said it was a humbling experience. Something to be thankful for.


Hope everyone is having a thankful time. What are you thankful for?
