Ten on Tuesday – 10 Thankfuls

ToT-Button

On Tuesday’s Carole hosts ‘Ten on Tuesdays’.
She chooses a topic – we list ten items.

10 Things You Are Thankful For

Our family has a tradition of sharing our ‘Thankfuls.’
Every month we get together for birthdays and anniversaries, food, fun, and just being together.
Before the presents and birthday cake,
everyone says three things for which they are thankful.
We call them ‘Thankfuls’
Our ‘thankfuls’ are not profound, rain, candles, a pillow, that it is bedtime, my garden is growing, after a long RV trip I was thankful for TP you couldn’t see through and wouldn’t melt in your hands (maybe TP is profound).
We try to stick to one rule, you can’t repeat what someone else has said.

1. A dry warm home.
2. Autumn weather, my favorite
3. Memories of good times and hard times.
4. My Knitting/Rocking Chair
my stuff 004
5. New Slippers
6. My hands and fingers
7. Knitting needles and yarn
8. Our faithful suburban with over 200,000 miles
9. The Word of God
482012 001
10. My family

from Simple Abundance ~~Sarah Ban Breathnach

. . .These are the six threads of abundant living which, when woven together, produce a tapestry of contentment that wraps us in inner peace, well-being, happiness, and a sense of security. First there is gratitude. When we do a mental and spiritual inventory of all that we have, we realize that we are very rich indeed. Gratitude gives way to simplicity –the desire to clear out, pare down, and realize the essentials of what we need to live truly well. Simplicity brings with it order, both internally and externally. A sense of order in our life brings us harmony. Harmony provides us with the inner peace we need to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us each day, and beauty opens us to joy.

Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone.
