Thankful Thursday


It was finally cool enough to burn a fire this morning, I was so cozy to sit and have my first cup
of coffee the R. in front of the fireplace. As I reflected sitting there, I thought how thankful I am I don't have to wait for the fire to burn down a bit so I can cook breakfast. I am thankful that this year I have wood. It is so nice to sit and watch the flames and have the flames to dance and take your mind to places to dream. ( I am a person who loves to dream.)
I am so thankful it is Thursday and it feels like fall and I have a very nice house to live in.
I read this and it has made me think about what kind of person I am.

"There are two classes of people---the complainers and the thankful. Which are you? The difference between a terrible, no-good day and a peaceful, happy one does not depend nearly so much on what happens as it depends on your attitude and your response."

" I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. " Philippians 4:12

  1. That looks so cool! There is something about a nice fire that makes you so much more cozy than just turning on the heater does. Happy Thursday!

  2. Happy Thursday to you too. Yes, I was thinking about you and being able to get up and watch a fire too. Knowing that the house is warm for you and the babies makes me so happy. I am glad you can sit in front of a fire and knit. That makes me happy too.
    Have a lovely day today Meg,

    It is nice to be able to sit in front of a "laughing fire."
