Z is for…

Count your blessings, name them one by one…

DSCN0245 SIGNIt’s taken me over eleven months but we have finally come to the end.  I’m following through on my promise to use Thursday posts to focus on thankfulness — and instead of counting blessings, I’ve challenged myself to come up with them alphabetically.  (You can find the rest of the posts in this series here.)

Welcome to week!

Back when I started with the letter A, I quoted the first page of Dr. Seuss’ ABC book, so it only seems appropriate that I end the alphabet the same way:

 BIG Z… little z… What begins with Z?

I do. I am a Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz, as you can plainly see.

Oh, how I love you, Dr. Seuss!

Z is for zinnias and zebras and perhaps most importantly of all, SLEEP  Zzzzzzzzzzz.

It doesn’t matter if you are a new parent or an aging one, naps should be taken whenever they become available.

Now it’s your turn:

Please share some things for which you are thankful…

Bonus points of you can come up with Z words!

  1. Hi Karen, I just saw a comment of yours to pop up at Hilary’s, so thought I’d stop by. Hmmm… thankful with a Z? I’m thankful that I have a Zest for life. I must admit though, that I get frustrated sometimes when I can’t do all things that I want to do; however, when I can enjoy nature, blog, read, walk, bike, spend time with friends, etc,, I’ve very happy.
    Happy Spring!

  2. I am thankful for the ZIPPERS on my coats, jackets, etc.. I am thankful for the ZANY antics of comedians of old along with clowns and pirates in any parade that usually bring many smiles. There have been a few times when I have been thankful that the oven timer reached ZERO several minutes before I needed to leave the house.

  3. Zippers, zzzs, zinnias, the zippy way I feel when I stay up too late.
    NOW what will you do with the alphabet done?
