Thankful Thursday

Do you remember those paper flowers we made as crafty ideas when we were kids?  I sure do and my mom also remembered me making tons of these as a kid...what can I say?  I get on a roll sometimes.  I really appreciate the beauty of these real poppies that look so delicate with their paper-like petals, but they are actually pretty tough.  This poppy just made it through a storm but when the sun came out again, the color was just amazing.  So thankful to be able to slow down a bit and admire the beauty of a simple poppy on a warm spring day.

I get to start a new job, and new kind of project and I am thankful for that this week too.

Psalm 62:1
My soul finds rest in God alone:
My salvation comes from Him.


  1. Beautiful flowers, aren't they? You got a new job already?? Wonderful! I guess you won't be coming here in June:(

  2. Beautiful poppies.

    Good luck in your new job. Pet Emily for me.

  3. Beautiful..I tell you, the color of poppies are just breath taking. I have a few and have to be thankful they don't need care, since I am a lousy gardener..They excite me every year..
    Hope you enjoy your new job..saying a prayer for you and wishing you luck..Sorry, I have been so sloppy visiting..but I always return.xoCarolyn

  4. It's wonderful to be able to enjoy my walks my own pace. Peaceful.

    My new job involves mapping networks. I'm still trying to find balance and I think this will help my right/left brain stay on track. I just had to take this opportunity now and I think it was a good choice. Thank you all for your good wishes and prayers.
    Smile today. :)

  5. Hope you had a great Mother's Day..I am late, as usual, but the thought is always there, even if I am late.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. Emily and I appreciate it...meow! Smile today. :)
