Thursday Thirteen - Blessings

Today I thought I’d count my blessings. It’s been too long.

1. We have the financial means to meet our needs, obligations, and wants while still donating to charity.

2. I am relatively healthy outside of a sprained ankle (from walking the treadmill!).

3. Both my parents are alive and in my life.

4. My folks love my husband and vice versa.

5. My husband and I still enjoy one another’s company after twenty-two years together.

6. Our pets are healthy and happy; my fish even had babies I hope to raise to adulthood.

7. Well, one cat needs medication but it’s inexpensive and doing the trick when I can get it in her.

8. I own a reliable car and have no car payments.

9. We live in a safe, comfortable neighborhood.

10. My husband asked for a stress test that saved his life.

11. The triple bypass surgery went well and he’s recovered nicely.

12. My husband is in the best health since his Air Force days.

13. I wrote this at a clinic waiting for blood to be drawn but it’s a rare event for a simple health checkup.

May you have reason to give thanks today!



  1. Health is so important to everything else. Good that you and yours are doing well.

  2. Wow, what a great TT! I'm going to have to steal that. :D

    (I don't know why this won't take ANY of my myriad accounts, but I'm Robin Rotham.)

  3. There's nothing like counting your blessings to reassure you in tough times.

    Happy TT!

  4. Great TT!

  5. Thank you for the kind words, dears!

  6. Thanks for reminding me that counting my blessings is a good thing to do. I think people in general and Americans in particular tend to whine about what we dont' have and ignore all that we do ahve. Hugs!

  7. This is a wonderful list, I'm so happy that you have so many blessings! :)

    Happy T13,
