Thankful Thursday

A friend once said to me "I magine standing on a chair and I'm standing in front of you. Now would it be easier for me to pull you down or for you to pull me up"? Well the answer is obvious. Pulling down!
I am a firm believer in "pulling up", "the glass is half full", "don't borrow trouble", etc...and I think Thankful Thursday is a wonderful addition to that theory of thought!
Visit all of the other participants and consider participating yourself. You might just find your frame of mind changed for a few moments!
Today the focus is on what we are thankful for in the warm months of summer:

* BSP! (obvious first choice)
* King James and Prince Ethan because they have summer birthday's and who wouldn't be 
   thankful for these little cuties?!
































*Sitting on our deck in the evening with a good book
*Nancy (because our friendship has really just blossomed over the summer and is such a blessing to 
  me!)
*No school! (Strange, I know, but when my girls got older, I LOVED having them home for the
  summer)
*Flip flops!! (BIG shoe nut!)
*Grilling
Ok, you're next. Go on, you know you want to!

Sounds like a nice summer! Love the picture of your little cutie! Is he your son? Gives me a chuckle seeing him bent like that!

I love your summer thankful list. I don't have a deck, but if I did, I would definitely be out there reading a book - whenever the sun is not too hot, that is!

Thanks for commenting on my blog, and it's nice to meet you.
