Thankful For The Little Things

Everyday
there is always so much to be thankful for
and it's always the little things
that get over looked...

Today
I am thankful for...

Banjo being born
9 years ago today
{though we do not celebrate until May 27
which is the day he came to live with us!}

I am thankful for April Showers
as they truly do
bring May flowers...

I am thankful for
my garden trinkets
that made it through the winter
even after laying beneath the snow for months

I am thankful for
green blades of grass
with drops of rain

I am thankful for
predictions of lovely weather
for Saturday
{hopefully Stanley can finish my garden project!}
I am thankful for
allergy medication

Happy Birthday Banjo!
I had to look up what 18 degrees C is I only relate to Fahrenheit and thought 18 sounded cold even with a sunshine, but 65 is getting warm. Have a great weekend.

It is so easy to take what we have for granted and to respond with little appreciation. Your post is a gentle reminder to take a second look and find what is around us, that is often overlooked. Thank you.

Pretty Post. "Happy Birthday, Banjo"

SquirrelQueen said...

Those are the most beautiful blue eyes. Happy Birthday Banjo!

All of your photos are exquisite and all are reasons to be thankful. The last one helps us to appreciate the others even more, or at least more comfortably.

Lin said...

Happy Birthday, Banjo! Happy "Gotcha Day" to all of you! What a joy a kitty is. :)

It is amazing what you can be thankful for, eh? Sometimes, just a snail does it for me. It's the little joys that add up to one big happy. Enjoy!

A very busy week has made me a little late with my blog visits, so I will wish Banjo a very happy belated birthday and many many more!! (our first cat lived to be almost 20!)

I hope you have a great weekend!! Like you, I'm thankful for the things that spring brings!
