Weekend Wrapup - This Week I'm Thankful For

As the week draws to an end I've spent some reflecting over the past few days.  By nature I'm a fairly positive and optimistic person, yet I discovered something about myself. There are times that  I choose to focus on negatives rather than blessings.

Beginning today, I'm making a conscious effort to end my week sharing at least five things I'm  thankful for.

This week I'm thankful for...

  • Dining out with my husband and my two children.  The service was a little on the slow side and guess what?  I'm thankful for the extra time I was able to spend laughing with the people I love. 

  • The April snow we received the other day as it will hasten the growth of the green spring grass.
  • The ducks wandering through my front yard as they remind me that spring really is just around the corner. 

  • Dry streets so our little Maltese, Sophia, doesn't return from our walks in need of a bath, like this time.
  • A lemon mouse Godiva truffle shared with my lovely daughter while shopping together at the mall.
What are you thankful for this week?

*************************************** Pin It


  1. I know it sounds trite but I'm soooo thankful that I'm finally on spring break. I'm thankful that my decaying roof didn't end up in the neighbor's yard after all the wind we had this weekend. And, I'm thankfull that my kids cleaned their rooms today without any tears!

    Have a great week Sharon!

  2. I love this idea! I am thankful for my week's vacation off of work! I am thankful for being able to finally plant a garden of my own.

  3. wonderful idea. I am thankful for a husband that is very good to me, for having the opportunity to do a little traveling with a friend and the friendships I have

  4. I am always thankful for my daughters. Both are still at home and love to come shopping (and sharing cake)with me. what more could I want?...well maybe a glass of champagne..and there is a bottle open in the fridge :)

  5. Sharon - what a lovely list. I love how you flipped the slow service to make it a positive. I try to do this on Thursdays.

    This week I'm thankful for: a 4 day weekend (even if it was unplanned); having what I wanted to make actually work; a husband who loves me; a job where I'm valued and important; 3 healthy dogs. g

  6. I am thankful for your blog, and the hour I got to sew on Saturday!

  7. I do a thankfulness list too! Your list is so sweet!

    Today I am thankful that my grandboys are one step closer to becoming ours!

  8. Great idea! Admittedly I'm having a hard time finding things to be thankful for this week between sickness and winter refusing to end around here. But I'm thankful for a husband who takes over the parenting when he walks in the door so I can have some time to myself!

  9. I'm "thankful" to be part of your Blog Club :)
