Six Thankful Thoughts on Saturday - May 4th

Things I'm Thankful For This Week 
 
1) The wonderful memories we have from our week of vacation in Savannah. That place is such a well-kept secret; we absolutely loved it there and will return again someday.  It is like nowhere else I've ever been.  All those trees are just amazing, I love trees!
 
2) My four furbabies survived the week while we were away just fine. It's hard to leave them, and I worry about them when I'm gone. They were mighty happy to have us home again!
 
3) A drama-free work week, enabling us to work together as a team to accomplish more, despite an extremely heavy workload.
 
4) Learning that everything has been approved for my daughter's purchase of a new home, and closing is set for the end of the month. She's been living in apartments for the last three years and is so ready to have a home of her own again, and this is a very beautiful home.
 
5) Finding out that the chest pain and tightness I was experiencing was a bad respiratory infection, and nothing more serious.
 
6) Hearing that the delivery date for our first great-grandchild is less than two weeks away!  I wish they lived closer, but it's exciting none the less.  We can't wait for this little guy to arrive safely!  His daddy is John's oldest grandson.

    1. I was thinking of a way to continue them without tiring everyone out, so I will try this as my Saturday post. Just writing it this morning put me in a better frame of mind. Counting blessings is the best medicine! :-)

    1. Now it is mine too, Karen! We chose it because neither one of us had ever been there, and what a delightful surprise it was, so much beauty, so much history, beautiful beaches at Tybee, beautiful rivers, beautiful houses and trees, and River Street fun! I'd really like to live there, it just felt good!

    1. When I take time to look back at it, it was a good week Arianna, even when some moments were more of a struggle. We have to look at the bigger picture to realize that life overall is a blessing!

  6. wow. So many GOOD things! I had a good day Wednesday, and got so happy I nearly slipped my hip out of joint.

    Made up for it the next three days with a heating pad and ibuprofen.

    You've got so many good things all lined up in a row for further enjoyment too! Now take care of that respiratory infection so you won't make the new baby sick!

    1. I'm delighted to read that you actually had a good day for a change, now you behave and get to feeling better, no fancy dancing, you hear me?! :-) I have so many blessings in my life Lotta Joy, these are just the first ones that came to mind. I am delighted for my daughter, and for that new baby! Unfortunately, they live in Arkansas, so wont get to see him anytime soon, but down the road a bit it might happen. His daddy looks like a younger version of Papa Bear, so we're crossing our fingers that those genetics are strong! :-)

    1. Kathe, I will most definitely pray for your so as he goes back to work, starting a new job is so hard, please tell him that I said the first month is always the hardest, and to hang in there, after that you begin to feel more at home. I have a friend there in Portland with a good education who has been job searching for over a year now, I know how hard jobs are to find. Prayers and blessings go out to your son, may this prove to be a wonderful new beginning for him!

  8. I can certainly relate to being grateful for a drama-free work place! Hope next week goes just as well.

    1. Drama is too common in most workplaces nowdays, including mine, Charleen. It is so disruptive and hard on staff morale. I was relieved that for once we could all attend to our jobs and work together. I hope next week continues that trend as well!

  9. Sounds like you're feeling a whole lot better which makes me happy as I know it does you too. Get plenty of rest dear friend. I find that I am able to fight off most everything if I get enough rest. My grandmother swore by afternoon naps and lived to be 96. With working it's hard to get in a nap but I do it on my day's off, plus make sure I get a good 8 hours every night. Hugs.

    1. Thank you Val! I am feeling better tonight, thankfully. I love naps, though Saturday is about the only day I am ever able to sneak one in. Sadly, I rarely get a full eight hours of sleep at night, since we arrive home from work so late and the evening goes by all too fast as it is. I try to get to bed on time, but have to wake up early and it is a rare day that I don't feel really tired by 4 PM. I think it would be wonderful if we could all take naps at lunch time, then we'd come back to work refreshed! :-) I know that being tired definitely wears down the immune system. Some day, I shall take naps every afternoon! I am a morning and evening person anyway, the warm part of the day is not my favorite. Thanks for dropping back by! :-)

    1. I think it would be very hard for anyone not to find something to love about Savannah, unless you were looking for mountains and snow! :-) It is the most beautiful city I've ever been in, and there are lots of fun things to see and do!

      Yes, I do have so much to be grateful for, and always more surprises down the road, those are the best blessings, the ones you don't expect! :-)

    1. My weeks are busier than I would like, I'd much prefer to stay here and blog 24/7! But there is much good to be thankful for. I'm glad you like my photos. I like to see the faces of the people I blog with, so I share mine. (They also can be easily printed out for birdcage and catbox liners for those so inclined. :-)

  12. :) Congratulations on being a great grandmother. I am wondering how far away they do live?

    We haven't been to Savanah either, neither of us but it is on our bucket lists. Our rich neighbors just came back from there. They took their monster RV and pulled their Porsche behind on a trailor. Poor things, that must have been hard. Did you by any chance see them?

    Please forgive me. I hadn't been on 6WS for a while and wanted to make a post. But as soon as we got up then, we headed out to help some dissadvantaged youth explore a country setting. There were horses to ride, face paintings, riding a pedal craft in the lake, hay rides, craft making, and fishing. So I still haven't answered all my comments.

    I helped with the fishing and caught one fish myself. It will be on my blog, probably next Thursday for my "Y" word post.

    1. They live in Arkansas, Jim, so it's too far for weekend drive. Had to laugh at your neighbors "roughing it" in Savannah! I would love to have an RV, but with the cost of gas nowdays, it is no longer less expensive than staying in hotels if you are going to travel very far!

      It sounds like you had a wonderful day yesterday with those kids. Life ALWAYS trumps blogging about life, and even moreso when you are doing something so wonderful to bring a little happiness into some young loves... YAY for you and Mrs. Jim! I love "pass it on" people! :-) Don't ever worry about getting back to comments, sometimes we just don't get it all covered, and I think most folks understand that. Glad to see you out and around, have a great week coming up!
