Thankful Thursday

I am starting weekly installments on my blog, and I had to make the Thursday installment

Thankful Thursday

because we can never say “Thank you!” enough.
I have to put a limit of three things for which I am thankful for today (or else I would be typing forever).

1. Meredith Anderson and I are paired in a TpT promotion collaboration this week, and I am so thankful I have gotten to know her. What a neat person she is! She is a former engineer who currently homeschools her two sons. She has several patents under her name in the field of implantable medical devices. And (a couple of off-the-wall comments): she loves Neutral Milk Hotel, and she uses Impress to create her TpT products.

Check out her creative products in her TpT store:

Here is her top selling item:
What a terrific packet!

2. I am thankful for iPad minis. Not only do I have one, but my daddy has one as well. I am tickled every time I hear the Facetime music because I figure it is him with some funny tale or a kooky question. I love the fact that when we go over for our family's Sunday lunch, he and I sit together and download new Pandora stations or take pictures of unsuspecting family members falling asleep. Ah, these gadgets are too much fun!

3. My middle daughter, while in her senior year at college, interns with New York Minute Magazine where she continues to receive praise and applauds for her articles. I am thankful she is concerned with and strives to education the public on the travesties of this world. I am so very proud of her! Here is her latest article.
I had no idea these things were still going on in today's world!


  1. This reminds me of something we started with our students this year. Every Thursday for morning work, I have my second graders write about something they are thankful for. I hope to bring out the positives throughout the school year. Love this idea for a blog!

  2. Cheryl, what a brilliant idea!
