Thankful Thursday

Hello everyone!  It’s been a while since I did a Thankful Thursday post, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t found lots be thankful for.  David and I have been dealing with some less than stellar incidences lately and 2015 has only just begun. In cases like that it can be hard to stay positive and think of the good things that are happening, but it’s so important to try.  Below is my list of what I am thankful for this week.

  1. My neighbor was home and able to help me when the truck got stuck on a patch of ice and left me halfway on the road and halfway in the driveway.  He has a farm tractor with a snow plow blade on it, so after  we freed the truck he broke up all the remaining ice and cleared our driveway for us.
  2. My brother got a a new puppy last week after years of wanting a dog.  He has some undiagnosed health issues that cause him to have balance problems and trembling in his arms, so he is is no longer able to continue his usual active lifestyle (running, cycling and driving are all out of the question). We are all hoping that having a dog will slowly ease him back into some form of physical activity that will aid his recovery.
  3. Some of David’s friends were able to help him get firewood last weekend so we now have enough to last a few more weeks.
  4. I’ve been able to pick up some extra shifts at the library, which means some extra money.

What are you thankful for this week?
