Thankful for the Little Things

Hello friends and let me say I am so really thankful to have you drop by today. I have thinking since being shut in from the cold, thinking of the little things. A chin scritch from Dad, re-discovering a fun toy, having an extra good nap are all nice, but add in an email from a friend, seeing a funny post, learning good news and these little things add up. They add up to a contented happy life. Yes, Dad told me many years ago to keep my paws on the ground and revel in little bits of daily goodness. In todays world this is even more important. Hope you have had some nice little things in your life today!

We are joining Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Hope to see you hopping along too

You are VERY wise, Timmy!
So many need to learn that technique!

We live pretty simply, and it helps us to truly enjoy what we DO have...a roof over our heads, food in our bellies and so on:)

Oh, and knowing we are loved!! That is the best!

What a great post Timmy......I'm very thankful for all the little things I have as all of us who were lucky enough to be adopted into our FOREVER should be. Life can be so very hard. Thanks for reminding us all that little things can be BIG STEPS to "happy" !

Love, Teddy

Timmy Tom, your dad is right about appreciating the small things in life. That's very important and frequently overlooked. Listen to your dad, he won't stir you wrong. Have a good day, furriend!

Timmy! You are so right! Thank YOU for reminding us of those things we are truly grateful for and one of them is you guys! You are AWESOME!| |Have a spenderiferous day!

The Indulged Furries said...

Your Dad is very wise and appreciating the small positive things is a great way to get through life.

Feline Opines said...

Your Dad is correct! The Human always says, "find joy in the ordinary" and that is true. Your favorite wet food breakfast in the morning, a sun puddle when it's 16 degrees outside (with a wind chill of 15 below), snuggles at night and dried fish treats. I could go on but you get the idea.

Katie Isabella said...

Timmy, I feel the same way about my life here. I could not be happier nor more loved. Your dad has the same thoughts we have here at my house too. WE are grateful each day for the day itself and whatever is in it.

John Bellen said...

Yup, a warm home on a cold night, good food for dinner - no empty tummies going to bed - and friends to visit with. Wait a minute: those aren't exactly 'little' things, are they, Timmy?
