Be THANKFUL today for someone who has touched your life.

Mauri...I too want to give thanks for the blessing of knowing Marla and sharing in some small way her life. Marla was not only an inspiration to me but a wonderful friend whom I will miss greatly. I have been so blessed to be able to count her as one of my friends on this Earth and look forward to her now watching over me as I continue my Earth journey.

Hugs,
Wanda

Be THANKFUL today for someone who has touched your life.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today I give thanks for our teammate MARLA7 who died yesterday after battling end-stage renal disease for several years, causing cardiac issues. She had what was thought to be successful carotid artery surgery on Tuesday, with a valve replacement scheduled for next week. Alas, while sitting up with her family yesterday, she had a heart attack and has left us.

I believe Marla was one of the first members of this team. She had deep faith, a great sense of humor, kindness, and love and shared them via SP with us. Though my heart is heavy today, I am so THANKFUL that our paths crossed and that our hope to meet after a kidney transplant someday never came to be. She enriched my life and I look forward to her being in my band of angels, watching over me.

Yes, sad but so filled with gratitude.

Be THANKFUL today. Express thanks to people who serve you - the person at the parking lot/garage, the cashier at the market, the mailman, milkman, wait staff, drive-thru server...you get it. Remember how you feel when someone thanks you for serving them or doing something for someone. Pay it forward...


I am thankful for all the prayers that have been said on behalf of my SIL. She is doing pretty good. Hope to talk to her next week in person. Also thank you to all of you for your positive attitudes and willingness to support and encourage. Many hugs.

To those who are celebrating Thanksgiving today in the U.S., happy Thanksgiving!

Other than family and friends, whom we all seem to list first, for what else are you thankful today?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm thankful...
...that today we escaped sn*w so John & I can celebrate the day today.
...for a wonderful season on the Hope Bus, meeting so many strong, courageous, faith-filled people.
...that I'm relatively healthy.
...that I'm on vacation until next Thursday.
...for blessings I don't recognize that occur in my day.
...for freedoms we have that others don't.
...for those who have gone before us, building my country (U.S.) and our world, despite the mistakes.

I am thankful that Wanda started us off seven years ago and how there have been good strong bonds made over those years between us all and we've been through good times and bad times together. Mauri I am thankful for your uplifting blogs and how you share your life with us. I would really miss my friends if for some reason I couldn't be on the internet anymore.

Right back at you, Wanda. I remember how this team wasn't a team at first. You invited me to blog the positives or blessings each day just as a practice. Your invite changed my life. I learn so much from you about life, blessings, and gratitude. THANK YOU, for that first invitation...and for the friendship that has developed over these years. So nice to call you "friend" instead of fellow Sparker or Spark friend.

SHIRL, I consider you a friend as well...no Spark needed. You are a blessing in my life and your support is a rock in my journey. THANK YOU for always being there with a kind and supportive word...and for the beautiful handmade cards you have sent my way...that have their very own book!

Today be sure to say "thank you" to those you love...spouse/partner, co-worker, child, parent, aunt, cousin, friend. We all know how much it means when someone surprises us with a thank you for being in his/her life. Give someone that feeling today...
...and then thank yourself for making that person smile!

Very easy to be thankful today, for two wonderful co-workers who helped me out on two tough projects that I had going simultaneously. I couldn't do it without them!

Simply being thankful makes life easier.

I am who I chose to be. Stronger. Leaner. Further. Fierce.

It's about taking my power back.

Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right.

Is there someone who has been supportive, inspiring, kind in your life? Make today a THANKFUL THURSDAY by thanking that person...even if it is something you've done for yourself.

For me it will be two friends. One is my friend Maribeth who is always there for me, checks on me, and helps in ways that seem ordinary to her but to me are magnaminous.

The other is my friend Laura, who, like me, is having a difficult time this season. She came up with the idea that we are accountable to each other - so we decide on a task to do for 15 minutes and then let each other know. At the end of the day, if we haven't heard, we will check in with each other by phone or text to encourage that it get down.

Friday night, I'm hosting a birthday celebration for Shy and her friends.
I've been taking extra eggnog tea with me to work and sharing it with my co-worker, who just happens to love it! *grin*
I've been performing some random acts of kindness and have been reaping the rewards of being blessed in return. (not my reason for doing the acts, just a side benefit)

Have a wonderful day,
Hugs,
Wanda

For those of us in the midst of holiday madness, be THANKFUL today that you are able to create and accomplish a to-do list...and think of someone whom you can help during this season - in any way...It can be as small as a phone call (no emailing allowed!) to a visit or running errands for a neighbor or elderly family member...You know what you can do.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am thankful (replacing complaining) for my holiday errands!

Tonight I will surprise my 86 yo landlord and landlady by running an errand for them this week.

Your challenge today is to list 5 things that you are thankful for that occurred today!

1) I got to work in time for the staff meeting, which meant getting up much earlier than usual.

2) My daughter got signed up (Thanks DH) for social security.

3) My EEG was not as messy or troublesome as I had feared.

4) My sister came over and helped us understand some things about disabilities and guardianship.

5) I got another meeting out of the way, for a group I am resigning from in May. Only 2 more left! I give thanks for this group, they are doing good work, and I have learned from them, just not a good fit for me right now.

Thanks for the awesome challenge!

It's been awhile since we practiced the original challenge Wanda laid down when she started this thread. I know it will do me well in these difficult days...so thought we could do it together!

Your challenge today is to list 5 things that you are thankful for that occurred today!

1. Gracie, Katie, and I are all alive today!

2. The bakery got my complicated zeppole order correct!

3. An agency with whom I work is interested in creating a position for me if they can secure funding.

4. I connected my new TV with no problems (just one call to cable co. to confirm I knew which signal source to choose - I was right)! This is why I didn't finish posting these last evening.

5. G-d blessed me once again!

Many of us find it difficult to accept compliments but easy to believe the slightest criticism. Today, right now, let’s make a choice to fully accept compliments as we would a gift.

Learn to just say THANK YOU today when you are given a compliment!

And so, let me be the first today to say:

YOU ARE ALL SUCH AMAZING PEOPLE! JUST FABULOUS PEOPLE!

How lovely ... I was already feeling so grateful today. Now I get to list the many reasons! I am thankful for ...

1- Friends and loved ones and their unconditional love.
2- The sun in the sky and the warm summer air.
3- A roof over my head, no matter how humble. So many don't have that luxury.
4- My family's daily bread. Another basic human need so many do not get.
5- The many freedoms that I often take for granted, that many do not have. I watch the political unrest in Iran and my heart breaks. I went to jury duty this morning and was reminded exactly WHY I should be so very thankful that I live in a democracy.

1. Katie has stopped hissing and growling at Gracie and me!
2. The rain...despite gloominess, that's why these trees are so green and flowers so bright.
3. G-d
4. Love...and forgiveness, which go hand in hand
5. Water...both drinking and the beautiful river outside my office...and the ocean near my apartment

What are you thankful for today?


That I can see the positives much more easily in my day.
For another day to become more of the person I desire to be.
A job.

Oh, Nancy! I waited to do it today! Hahahaha...

2. Gracie and Katie are in my life!

3. I still have a job - so far.

4. I survived Pink Spirit Program!!

5. I am breathing today.

". . . Today is Thankful Thursday." I was hoping that it wasn't a mistake and that I would get my post in ahead of schedule instead of playing catch up. Oh well.

"Your challenge today is to list 5 things that you are thankful for that occurred today!"

1. An easy commute to work.
2. The cafeteria owner appreciated my business by giving me a 56 cent discount on my tea!
3. I found out that there will be overtime available starting tomorrow, at time and a half pay. Woohoo!
4. The weather is beautiful and there is a cardinal singing outside my window right now.
5. The baby Blue Herons are back to roost in George Bush Park. My friends!
Do I have to stop? It was a very positive day.

I'm thankful this Tuesday because:

1. I didn't wake up to snow today!
2. My backyard is now 600 square feet bigger, due to my husband completing the new portion of fence this weekend!
3. My five-year-old daughter keeps me laughing... sometimes even in spite of myself.
4. I have a sister-in-law who is more 'sister than 'in-law'!
5. I am nearly back at the point where I can resume my 'normal' level of activity.
