Thankful Thursday 2011 #3

Thursday, November 17, 2011

The past two weeks I have blogged about being thankful on "thankful thursday" and if you happened to miss the first week's post, click here to view it and to view last week's post, click here.  Here is my five for this "thankful thursday" series.

  • I'm thankful for little babies.  I have friends that have little ones and they are so precious to be around.  The giggles, smiles and little noises bring me pure joy.  They have no idea what the future holds for them, but we already know exactly what they might grow up to be.  Our hopes and dreams for them are huge and we know they will never want for anything in this world.  Maybe one day we will have the pleasure of raising a little one.
  • I'm thankful for Mississippi State Football.  No, they aren't having the season we thought they would have this year, but I still LOVE my bulldawgs.  We bleed maroon and love the sound of a cowbell.  And no matter what, you'll always hear me saying, "GO DAWGS!" 
  • I'm thankful for toe socks.  Mississippi doesn't have the coldest of winters, but I'm pretty sure I have the coldest feet on the planet.  You can't really see the toe socks while I'm wearing my shoes, but they come in the cutest colors and they are very comfortable and very warm for my little toesies.
  • I'm thankful for Christmas lights.  Especially this time of year, it's wonderful to pass by houses with their twinkling lights glowing through the windows.  It brings a smile to my face to see them lit up for the season.
  • I'm thankful for my iPhone.  I'm not really sure how I got by without it all those years.  Everything I know is on that phone, from phone numbers to my calendar of things to do... Thank you Steve Jobs for designing something that we can't seem to live without, but also thank you for designing it to do everything we need it to!

You might not think these things are something to be thankful for, but I do.  Each means something to me and I'm thankful for them.  Come back next Thursday to see my last Thankful Thursday list...


  1. Wonderful post! Your toe socks crack me up! Love that you weare these! I love seeing the Christmas lights. It makes me smile as well! My sisters and I would make a night out of looking at lights and eating Krispy Kreme donuts! Good times! Hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  2. I still remember driving around showing our kids all the Christmas lights! They are always so beautiful!

  3. i love these and i love you! and i can't wait to see you tonight!

  4. Perhaps it's the time of year, or maybe its the Christmas music I'm listening to right now, or maybe, just maybe, I feel the same way about number 1. Those little naive babes, with their smell, and promise for the future....ah, simply brings a tear to my eye. I'm grateful for the reminder of precious life they bring. Have a great weekend Joy!
