Thursday's Thinks

I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought,  
and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.
 Gilbert Keith Chesterton

I had something on my mind this week that I thought I would talk about. But now I don't think I want to. I've had a little stress in my life, on top of the normal low grade stress that is commonly my life. So my mind is in a different place right now. I'm in a place rather rare for me, peaceful gratitude. I know, who'da thought.

I feel grateful for the people who have helped me with Bounce and the people who express their concern for him. Without this medium of communication I would not have found Dr. Thomas and the glimmer of hope this offers. It's enough to make an old cynic think.

It's a beautiful day, tax season is over and Mark is able to crawl out of his hole, the mud is dry and the horses can move around better and the work has been caught up. For this moment, at this time, life is good. I'm alive, and I believe it all!


  1. Oooh, this is a good day. Take the time to sit outside in the sun and drink a cup of coffee or tea or something.

    That always makes me feel good!

  2. Sounds like a great day at Worlds End Farm! Enjoy those big lovable creatures!

  3. Oh Sandra! Days like that are good days, aren't they? I'm so glad there is hope for Bounce. Apart from being a softie I know the drive to live is huge in all God's creatures & Bounce has so much character. With a name like that he'd have to, wouldn't he? Gratitude is such a blessing.


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
