Hello all. Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge on this Saturday, September 1, 2018. You heard it right! It is the first day of September. Unbelievable to this writer, I will most likely insist it be August 32, 2018 instead. lol Kristi, road warrior extraordinaire who pens the blog Thankful Me, has opened up the lines to the blog hop known as Ten Things of Thankful. There is surely a benefit to sharing “out loud” those people/places/events/things that stop us each day and remind us, what is important. If not that, at least remind us that, hey, if we take a moment to breathe and reflect, find the center, we can see there really is a “silver lining” somewhere.
Before I list my 10, I am reminded that the following quote is so very true. So true. “Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.”– Orhan Pamuk. While not a unique thought unto Mr. Pamuk, it surely makes my thankful list.
TToT I’m thankful friends are comfortable enough to entrust me to watch over their dog and home while they take a long deserved vacation.
TToT I’m thankful to be a dog person. I do speak canine 😀
TToT I’m thankful that John, before they left last night, brought out 2 battery operated lanterns and a flashlight. We teased him about jinxing things. Guess he did lol
TToT I’m thankful to have awakened to the power restored! Not a good feeling the first night staying in someone’s house for the power to go out. The thing I was worried about? If I was going to be able to have coffee in the morning 😀
TToT I’m thankful for such a restful night’s sleep. Sleeping at someone else’s house isn’t always good. As soon as my body hit the mattress, my head on the pillow, I knew the sleep would be good. Or…maybe it was having a dog sleeping next to me that made it all good 🙂
TToT I’m thankful the dog I am watching is so sweet. Not surprising since her owners are nice people. It’s a plus to take care of a pretty low maintenance, here let me lay across your lap, let’s watch tv together, canine.
TToT the Wakefield Doctrine. It is a perspective that allows for things to make sense, to correlate, in this clarklike brain o’ mine.
TToT I’m thankful my friends had a good flight last night and that all is on course for their vacation adventure.
TToT I’m thankful for the ability to recognize certain feelings of discomfort when normal routine has been dismantled, as opportunity.
TToT I’m thankful for this day. It awaits me. It awaits you. Are you ready for it?
