My sister called me to go for a walk, today, in spite of the wind and -5 degree weather. We enjoyed a wonderful walk and chat together. I'm grateful for her phone call. It's my first "real" outdoors walk of the Spring. emoticon

Hi Irene, You must be getting the rain storm we had last week. We received "heavy rain" warnings. Those storms sure do help us appreciate the roof over our head!

I'm grateful for the wide variety of choices in our grocery stores. Yesterday, I bought oranges. And I do NOT live in a tropical climate! I'm also grateful to have the means to buy what I need.

Hi Rej - yes, aren't we lucky there are handy people around? (i'm not one of them!)

Today I am grateful for a dry warm place to live in. Last night we had a spectacular thunder and lightening storm (we don't get this much in BC) and heavy heavy rain. More very heavy rain today. I am glad for that warm roof over my head.

Hi Rej. Yes, when your son is home, he is still far from you. Like mine. Only mine in Alberta isn't so far from me. But still a trip away.

Today I will echo your thankfulness for the people with the forethought and knowledge to create parks for us. By the way, the park I wrote about the other isn't that big - and pretty urban, but I think the territory of the eagle expands well beyond the park.

Hi Irene - My niece is a psychologist, who is mom to two healthy, rambunctious 7-year-old twin boys. She brought them to a hockey camp this week, and stopped by to see me on the way. She doesn't live very far away, but I hadn't seen her since last Summer, when my son visited Quebec. It was really nice to see her. My son has finished his work contract in Madagascar, but he lives in Alberta, way on the other side of our beautiful country.

It sure sounds like a beautiful park! It has to be a pretty good-sized park for there to be eagles! Today, I'm grateful for the people who had the foresight to create parks and other protected areas for the preservation of this earth's natural beauty.

That's so nice Rej. Does she live nearby? Is your son still far away?

As for me,today I am grateful for a lovely walk in a local park in the sunshine. emoticon It's not a very wild park, Rej. But it is one I feel safe walking in alone. On most days it is full of people out walking dogs or with baby buggies. But there are still lots of trees, and a lake, and a mountain view, and some days even a view of an eagle - there are two eagles with a nest in the park.

The Rockies ARE magnificent Rej - however they are not the mountains we can see in the lower mainland. We see the North shore Mountains (in Canada) to the north, and Mt Baker, and some other mountains to the south just across the border. Mt Baker is the same kind of mountain as Mt St Helen's (that erupted years ago) - looks kind of Mt Fuji in Japan. So they still are beautiful.

Today I am grateful for a Lenten study group at my church that meets on Wednesdays - and it works with my work hours, so I am able to go to it.

Hi Irene, You people in Western Canada sure are blessed with magnificent mountains! On my trip to Alberta and BC in 2007, it seemed like my eyes just weren't big enough to take in all that awesome beauty! We have Mount Orford, here in l'Estrie, but it looks like a molehill compared to the Rockies!

Today, I'm grateful for eyes to see.

Wonderful to be respected - I am so glad that you are, Rej.

As for me, today I am grateful for my dh. He had wanted to be married on Valentine's day- but it wasn't a weekend, so weren't. But our anniversary comes up in a few days - it will be 40 years this year. (which means I was way too young when I got married, but it worked out okay, anyway.)

Hi Rej! Sorry that you will be losing a good neighbour - but good for that family that they are getting back together.

As for me, today I am thankful for a full evening coming up - going out for dinner with friends from work to celebrate my recent 60th birthday and a co-workers upcoming 65th birthday (she is not retiring). It will be at an Irish pub. I won't be drinking, but I love the food. I am so thankful that I have such a great bunch of people that I work with, that they are doing this.

Hi Rej - yup that was 10C above zero. That was just that day though. However, today it has been about 5C above zero. Most parts of BC DO get a more Canadian winter - and lots of snow. Very hazardous on the mountain passes. However, most of the people in BC live in the lower mainland in the south - and there it is much more moderate. This winter - so far - has been particularly mild though.

All the best with your new opportunity.

As for me, today I am grateful for the walking exercise DVDs that I use on rainy and/or cold days.

Hi Irene,

Is that 10C ABOVE zero! Ohhh.... nice! It's been in the minus twenties (-26C at night) during the past week, here. 10C sounds heavenly! When I think of Western Canada, I tend to think of Edmonton, Alberta, because it's what I'm most familiar with. I have to remember that you're in BC, where the weather is much more clement (or so I hear).

Today I'm grateful for fresh opportunities. A door recently closed unexpectedly, but another door has opened up, also very unexpectedly. I'm not sure I'm up to the challenge, but it's an interesting opportunity that needs investigating. emoticon

Hi Rejj, and today I am also grateful for sparkfriends. :-)

It wasn't that cold by the ocean Rejj - I think that White Rock was the hot spot of Canada that day- about 10C. Not warm, but not cold either. And there's just something about being beside the ocean - even briefly.

Keep warm Rejj - it's really cold out in your part of Canada!

As for me, today I am thankful that this cold I have been dealing with seems to be on the way out.

Hi Irene, I'm glad that you like the new minister at your church. I have no doubt that you'll be a blessing to her too.

Today, I'm grateful for my apartment, a heated refuge where I can come in from the cold. emoticon

OK by me if you do a 'blessings' thread.

I am grateful for the life of an elderly friend whose funeral was this morning. She was a very faith filled woman. Lived to be 91 years of age.

Today I am grateful that I had the tolerance physically to spend 4 hours shopping plus the two hours to drive there and back, don't know how to count that but sure was good and tired in a nice way when we got home. Amazing what preparing for the new arrival of a puppy can do for your activity and he's not here till tomorrow. Things will really pick up then :)

Today so many things to be grateful for, one that I can walk for 15 minutes at a time but more importantly for having found my way back to Sparks, I was never really far from it, but so good to be "involved" so I am grateful I kept receiving updates from Sparks I feel the world is opening up again. I look forward to getting to know you all. Karen

Today I am grateful for a whole new year stretching out before us.....

Rejj - good to see you here. :-) As for my grandson - he is back with his mom and my son in BC. He has a neck brace and has to take it really easy for 4 months. He looks pretty wobbly. But it could have been so much worse.

MaryBeth good to see you in the chit chat lounge. :-) All the best with that surgery coming up in February.

MaryBeth, I am sure that it is a joy for them to sing for/with you too. :-)

As for me, today I am grateful for a woman at my church (someone I don't know that well) who really comforted me today (I was quite upset about some troubles my parents, who live at a distance, are going through.). So thankful for her.

Thanks Marybeth. :-) Your relaxing day sounded like a very nice day.

As for me, today I am grateful that the car accident that our grandson who lives and works in Saskatchewan was not as bad as originally reported. The first call from the hospital said that he had broken his neck and back. The second - hours later! - was just some fractures and bruises. Fractures and bruises are not great, but so much better than a broken back and neck.

Awesome Irene!
I am grateful today that I stayed at home relaxing and just enjoying the day doing various little things like reading, napping, talking on the phone. Well, I did do some laundry and ironing too but it wasn't too piled up!
It is nice to see the snow falling too - now it really does look like winter! Not my favourite season of the year but I'll get through it.

Glad to hear that your services went well at Christmas Mary Beth.

As for me, today I am grateful for the time spent with my out of province son in our trip to Germany together just before Christmas. He (and his wife) are also staying with us a few days around Christmas, but that time together on that trip was very special.
