Thankful Thursday – 09/05/13

It is another gloriously sunny day here. The sun is out, not a cloud to mar the sky, and there’s just enough breeze to make things comfortable.

I decided to take advantage of it on my lunch break and went for a walk around a small lake that is nearby. Oh how it made my heart happy.

I had my music playing in my ears, and my phone’s camera at the ready. So much fun to look for the beauty in this world. Between the sun and what I was listening to I could feel a smile creep across my face and it was all I could do NOT to sing outloud (my hubby would appreciate how hard that would be for me).

The water park was open and the children’s squeals and laughter were another form of music. A pure expression of joy unfettered and free.

Here are the songs that put a spring in my step (beware, my collection is a bit eclectic):

Good Life – One Republic
Homeless – Paul simon with Ladysmith Black Mambazo 
Need You Now – Plumb
Keep The Fire Burning – Parachut Band
First Time – Hawk Nelson
Just Like somebody Else – Big Daddy Weave
Tell Me a Story – Phillip Phillips
You Can Still Be Free – Savage Garden
Dont’ Stop Believin’ – Journey
Don’t You Ever Forget About Me – Sleeping With Sirens

The images that captured my heart this afternoon are:



water park - oh the joy!

water park – oh the joy!

the whimsy of pink tipped leaves

My friends, what is making you smile?

What’s in your ears today?

What are the images that you will take away from today?

Looking forward to your responses.

Hugs & smooches,


  1. Hey lady, sorry that I’m catching up now but I just want to say that I love it, the words so descriptive I can see what you’re seeing, the music – love it, and the pictures – love the goslings…keep doing what you’re doing. Love, Lisa
