R is for…

Count your blessings, name them one by one…

I’m using Thursday posts to focus on thankfulness — and instead of counting blessings, I’m challenging myself to come up with them alphabetically.  (You can find the rest of the posts in this series here.)

Welcome to week!

Reading — what a gift to be able to read!

You, my dear Reader, are a blessing to me. ♥

Time for Reflection…

Please share some things for which you are thankful…

  1. Lovely pictures.
    I too regret that people who visit my blog may have to put up with ads I have not agreed to. However, wordpress is an excellent platform for my blog and I guess I can only avoid ads by purchasing my own site. Don’t know if I’m ready to do that, just yet.

  2. I’m thankful that I can read your blog and see the wonderful pictures. I use Ghostery in my browser so I have absolutely no ads on your blog. I’ll add running to your R list because today is the first time I dragged myself out to go run with my best friend. I’m in the middle of a nasty depression and I can’t wait for the T week to be thankful for Therapy. I read your comments on Derfwad Manor and I think you are a wonderful uplifting woman. Thanks.

  3. I love rainbows as well. I have seen quite a few over the last few weeks.
    Oh yes to have the privilege to read! so thankful for that too.
    Recover … as in being able to heal from a sickness or an injury.
    Running Not that I run that often these days but I can if need be
    Refrigerators … need I expand on that one?
    Ok that is a few I can think of for now.
    Have a great weekend.

  4. To all the wonderful Rs that the others have stated, I might add Rhyme, which makes the world more interesting and playful.

    I agree with Veronique that you are an uplifting woman, Karen, and I love your alphabetic reminders nudging us toward gratitude.

    I am sad that I am no longer able to access Derfwad Manor – it asks for a login ID and password. Is this because I was not on of the original participators? Because I lurked too much? Because I ate too much chocolate? Not enough chocolate?

  5. REST (whenever and wherever it happens), RHUBARB, RASPBERRIES, RAISINS, RAIN (although we’ve had much too much of it lately), RADIO (which I still listen to on occasion), and RUN-on sentences (that by now you know I am very fond of) Hugs!.
