Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for great memories.  My small town has witnessed the passing of several great people this week.  Unusual for a town so small and each loss has been heartfelt, by many.  

My take away from the past few days?  Leave good memories behind, be that special person,  make the effort, go the extra mile, smile, be positive even when it's hard ~especially when it's hard, and be who you are.  

Thankful everyday for great memories and new beginnings.  

What are you thankful for today?  Take a moment and give it a thought.  


It's a Small Town Life

  3. I'm thankful for my creaky floors. I know that sounds a little weird, but I have found them comforting as the children grow older and wander around a little more after bedtime. There's something comforting about hearing the floor boards creak and knowing your family is all safely at home.

    Blessings~

  11. Beautiful!.. Let's see.. What am I thankful for today? I'm thankful that even though the grandkid was a handful this morning, that he's going to school here and I get to see him most days.

  12. It sounds like those people were well-loved. In our rural community we have many of those character types.. I try to be my true self and life a good life. I'd be happy to be remembered as a character. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  16. Sorry to read about the losses in your town, Michelle. We also lived in a small town in VA and since we left have still kept in contact with friends there and sadly learned of some passings. I am thankful to remain in contact with so many in the places we have lived.

  17. This has happened in our church community too, with several beloved ones passing within a short space of time & their loss is hard but the lives they lived are inspirational for those of us coming behind.
    Thanks Michelle
