Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for/that: Summer time! We made it through the first day of summer vacation. The house is still mostly clean and the laundry mostly caught up on. Yeah me! Sisters who go on shopping sprees when they find a clearance sale resulting in boxes of goodies turning up on my doorstep. What are you thankful for?

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for/that: Another year of life. Laughter. A good night's sleep. Friends. Books. Sticky, slimy little kid kisses. What are you thankful for?

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for/that: The kind of creativity that can take a piece of construction paper, a pencil, two coins, and a pair of dice and make an entertaining and educational game for a kid. I think you missed your calling dude. Warm sunshine. Frolicking in the evening sunshine around the pond. I don't have the kind of allergies that would make me want to claw my eyes out at this time of year. Sleep! I actually got some last night. The prayers or faithful men and women. The helping hands that you never get to see or know about. What are you thankful for?

Go Ahead and Talk to Yourself

I remember reciting the times tables in school when I was little, before I came to the States. Reciting things out loud over and over was a big part of learning things in that time and place. These days I spend a lot of time talking to myself. Turns out that that's actually the way to go. Talking Out Loud Improves Memory Retention Via Althouse .
