Thankful for the Written Words

Another Week, Another Reason to Be Thankful
This week is like a treasure hunt.
I had to look for reasons to be grateful.
I found them in my family, outdoors, my home, my bookcase, and my . . . Iphone! What do you know?
***
I am still lucky I have many reasons to be thankful. Some people, some nations, some groups are less fortunate. Let us shower them with compassion. May the leaders and future leaders act with just and kindness to all.



(1) I almost did not make it
And miss this week
Thank God it's quick
As I'm tired and weak

(2) But I am glad
My son was transferred
To a facility
Where he'll get treatment

(3) The first pic's my daughter
Before her court
It's good she dressed
With no ripped clothes

Instead, she wore
This one piece outfit
With matching skorts
And tasteful print

I got myself to walk outdoors
Before I got buried with bills and chores

(4) I really should
Get out more often
And free my brain,
Take breaks from problems,
Admire the flowers
Take some bright pictures
Breathe in some fresh air
And watch the nice views

(5) Here is my mom
Wearing a red dress
Behind hers are--
Religious figures

She makes me smile
With her poses for pictures
She looks so happy
With her little adventures

Pretty soon she will
Fly back to the Philippines
Back to her business
Her lying-ins

(6) I got a recipe
From the good old web
That uses coconut
For cookies to bake

(7, 8) Next, are some quotes
I cropped this weekend
Words to live by
My cell phone app sent

(9) Here's a book I have
With tips for people
With narcissist partner
Who is a trouble

I mentioned the book
To a friend who might need it
I hope she gets it
And really use it

(10) Last pictured here
Is my bible app
So handy and useful
I can read in a snap

That's all my folks
I'm thankful I did this
Just writing my gratitude
Lifts up my spirit

Join us for another week of gratitude in Lizzi and the gang's Ttot blog party.
Come on.
You must have reasons to be thankful

It is cool outside but sunny. It's pretty much the same all week--nice enough to go out but too cold to spend a long time outdoors. I met up with a friend for a quick lunch at the mall. We walked around and looked at home stuff. She bought a block of knives for her new apartment with her husband. I did like a lot of stuff but decided not to buy any. It took a lot of will-power but I succeeded to control myself. I mean, I do not really need a set of cutting board with pictures of animals (cow, chicken, pig) telling me what kinds of cut each portion is, nor I do need a special cutter for loose leaf salads, a small, red, heart-shaped dutch oven, a Monday through Sunday printed mugs, etc. I mean, maybe I should not use a Monday mug if it is Saturday but early pre-coffee morning is not a time I can make intelligent decisions. They were all so cute though. My friend did recommend an Asian grocery store close to her area. She is not Asian but I am. How could I not have gone to this

More pictures, more gratitude. I did not post last week, so I am doing a make up. I am thankful for more than ten things, I am sure. Here they are: Desserts in a local nursing convention along with valuable learnings I picked up from many speakers. I can use them at work to improve patient care. The breakfast and lunch were tasty as well. My grandson looks so cute with his dad here. They were taking selfies. A music-filled night watching a Beetles tribute concert on a Valentine's night with friends. Guess where the group are from? Las Vegas, lol. They fooled us talking with an English accent all along until the end when they announced they are Americans. :) They were pretty good singing the popular songs of Beetles, though. A Valentine's dinner before the concert in a new restaurant with all-you-can eat sushi. It is a new branch in our city called Sushi Katsu.  Free champagne in red glass. We finished it fast and Paul might be too drunk making
