unsung Thanks . . .

ISO 400; 300 mm focal length; shutter speed: 1/200; f/5.6

I had intended to do a 'give thanks' style post on Sunday but got sidetracked. A fellow blogger pointed out how much we (as a society) too often fail to give thanks for the good things in our lives. So true. When I wake up at 3 am unable to fall back to sleep, my mind runs through all the things I need to do/should do/wish I could do; fretting over things I have no control over and certainly not at 3 am. My mind immediately leans towards negativity. That being said - here are 5 things, plain and simple, that made me happy today.

1. Sunshine! Not only was it sunny today, but the skies were a gorgeous blue with well defined clouds.
2. In addition to getting a couple of things accomplished inside the house - I went for my walk.
3. My family - always! (even when they are driving me batty). Today it was the friendly banter between the kids as they strolled in after school. Knock on wood - for the most part they get along and actually like each other.
4. Fuzzy socks from Bath & Body. Seriously - try them, they are beyond soft.
5. A cuddle-loving cat that loves to be wrapped in a blanket or snuggle up to sleep.



  1. I love this post! I think its a great reminder for us all to think about what we are thankful for in our lives. Oh and I'm going to have to try out those fuzzy sox. I'll bet ds will love them (he likes soft clothes).

  2. Always a good reminder. But, actually, you always seem quite positive :)

  3. Its always good to be reminded. Thank you for that and btw I have two pair of those socks, love them :)

  4. Nice shot! I try to go to thinking some good thoughts.
