For the last few hours I have been sitting with my laptop on my knee trying to think of something original to say for Thankful Thursday. I've been going through the things for which I am thankful and although they are many and varied I just couldn't get any ideas to put on paper (so to speak). Then I read Jaz's post. Immediately it occurred to me that I didn't need to think so much and look too far. The obvious is all around me.
I have just poured a wee cognac and I have raised my glass to Jaz who, today, wrote this: (sorry Jaz for the appalling breach of copyright)
I had a particularly thankful day today.
I love Thursdays.
I teach music all day on a Thursday.
I watched kids perform music better than they thought they would/could. Despite technical difficulties and very little practice time. They did it.
They all smiled.
Never underestimate the greatness within any child.
I am thankful for the hugs I gave and received today.
I never underestimate the power of a hug.
I am especially thankful for the courage Anne Spensley brought me up with............and to have found within myself. I looked at my music exam certificates today and smiled.
Never underestimate yourself.
Do you hear that Jaz?...............................never underestimate yourself.
You have nearly made it through another year.
Another year alive.
If I had a glass I'd probably drink to that!
