Today the 5 minute Friday prompt is THANK YOU – here are my 5 minutes worth
Immediately a quote I saw on Pinterest came to mind
I have so much to say “thank you” to God for:
My faith – my Christian faith has always been important to me, and I hope and pray that my faith will help me to make a positive difference in the world.
My family – my husband, 3 wonderful kids, caring Christian parents who set me a great example, siblings and beyond
My church family – another important part of my life, I appreciate their prayers, support and friendship
My health – a couple of years ago I had treatment for hyperparathyroidism and I am SO grateful for the vast improvement in my health following the surgery (although my son still likes to tell others about the time mummy had her throat cut!)
My jewellery business – the opportunity to be self-employed and creative with janmary designs
is not something I take for granted.
Another pinterest graphic to be share
I believe we all have much to be thankful for.
Saying “thank you” is good manners, something I value highly. I hate it when people take things for granted – I dislike that sense of entitlement.
THANK YOU also reminds me of a certain purple dinosaur, Barney,and his song “Please and thankyou are the magic words”.
When my kids were younger there was many a day I was thankful for that large purple dinosaur – my kidsjust loved him and his vast array of videos. Other days I would have paid good money never to have to listen to those songs again….. But in balance I want to say “thank you” to Barney, for entertaining my kids and helping me to reinforce good manners.
