The Thankful Blog Give Away

Hey everyone! My part of this blog is going to be short and sweet, because this is a blog I’m going to let you write. 

In these trying times–let’s see…pandemic, murder hornets, storms, fires, asteroids approaching Earth–it’s easy to get caught up in the negative. I say it’s time to count our blessings!

What are you thankful for? What is one blessing that makes your life richer?

My blessing is being able to keep contact with my children via electronic communications, instead of having to wait weeks, months, years for a precious letter as our ancestors had to do.

I will gift two thankful commenters $10 Amazon gift certificates. 



Winner will be announced Thursday afternoon. 🙂

  1. I’m thankful for all my friends and family who keep me grounded, keep my spirits up, and know how to make me spew coffee when they tell me something outrageously funny!

  2. I’m grateful for all the teachers and staff in our district working to make our new school year successful, even if different.

  3. I’m thankful for a lot actually! I’m thankful for my life first of all, I’ve seen a lot of death this year and several recently my age! 50’s! I’m thankful for good friends and family even though I don’t actually get to see them right now. Like you said, thank goodness for technology! I thankful for my daughters. Most importantly I’m thankful that I’m in good health. I have MS and an altered immune system so staying healthy during this pandemic is a huge blessing. Stay safe!

  4. I’m thankful for God’s promise to never leave us or forsake us! He has given us the great outdoors his beautiful creation to enjoy while we maneuver these trying times!

  5. Welcome Jeannie. This is a good post. During this time of unrest and uncertainty I fell thankful and blessed that I can still read/study my Bible and go to church, even if it is online. That with technology I can stay in contact with our daughter in another state and know that she is well and looked after. That we can stay in touch with our son and daughter in law several times a week. That we can stay in contact with family and friends. I feel so blessed that we have a home that God provided for us and we know that we are safely in His Hands every minute of the day and night.

  6. I’m thankful that my mom is recovering from covid and doing well for now. My grandchildren and children are doing well also. I’m not worried yet but my son is being deployed overseas in March. I was able to spend time with him during my birthday weekend. I cherish every moment I can get.

  7. This past week I’ve been focusing on Joshua 1:9. The verse tells us not to be afraid and that God is with us. So, I will not lose my joy. I will keep enjoying our grandkids, family, and friends. And, I will count my blessings even if it is a dragonfly that flies by. And, I refuse to focus on fear. How’s that for a mini sermon ?. Thank you Jeannie for being thankful and expressing your joy.

  8. I am thankful for telephones. They have been one of the biggest blessings of my life. I married and moved far away from home 37 years ago, phones kept me connected to my family. Now, my daughter and her family live far away from me. Cellphones keep me connected to her. Even before Covid, we couldn’t travel due to my husbands health issues.

  9. I am thankful for God and his word that kept me focus on who is in control. It is great to see things through God’s perspective because you will not be freaking out like everyone else.

  10. I am thankful that my family is well, and that they are close enough for me to see them on a regular basis. A lot of events on my calendar have been cancelled this year, but the important things remain- familly, friends, food and shelter, and my God.

  11. I am thankful for my 4 grandchildren whom I can see everyday. I am very fortunate to take care of them and love them to bits.

  12. My husband lost his job earlier in the month. I am VERY GRATEFUL he started looking when he got home that day. He found another job right away. He may not be making near as much as he was, but at least there is some money coming in.

  13. I am thankful for our entire family’s great health which is the most important component in life especially now.

  14. I am thankful for my family and friends and the beauty that surrounds us that God has blessed us with.

  15. I am thankful my baby brother, who makes sure I get yo all doctor appointments and takes me to do my errands.
    I am blessed that I have support, love from family and many friends, some of which I only know on Facebook.

  16. I am thankful we’re buying our first house! And for all the friends and family who have offered us help in moving, as well as insight in the whole house-buying process.

  17. I’m thankful that our library let you still check out books while they were closed to the public all you had to do was when you got there to call and they bring the bag out to you. Thankfully they have been open again for a few months.

  18. I’m thankful that I’m able to fellowship through home church and Bible study. The Lord is still on His throne. He’s turning things around for our good and His glory.

  19. I am Thankful for my health, that my legs are good and I can go our daily morning walks with my husband and our pup.

  20. I’m thankful that my job is letting many of us work from home till at least January. While I miss being in the office (and I’m not wild about a computer in my bedroom), I’m really blessed to be at home on the days my kids have elearning.

  21. I’m thankful my husband still has a job, since he is the primary breadwinner. He may be working from home, but we have his full salary and benefits, food on the table, roof over our head, money in the bank. He will probably be working from home till there’s a viable vaccine.

    Thankful the schools are going forward, even with virtual learning, my youngest will not idle.

    I haven’t seen my parents since July 2019, nor my MIL since January, but I’m thankful they’re safe.

    Thankful my college boys are in a hybrid of classes, and both are still set for graduation in 2021.

    Thankful my Covid-19 antibody test came back negative. I was so ill earlier this year, symptoms mirroring Covid-19, but it truly was something else.


  22. I’m thankful that God is still in control, and that none of this was a surprise to Him. I’m thankful that I was already working from home, and that my life hasn’t really changed at all. I’m thankful that the grocery store shopping experience is getting better and isn’t quite as much of a scavenger hunt anymore.

  23. I am thankful for virtual family gatherings that have allowed us to get together from Western Washington to Denver and places in between inspite of all the miles between us.

    I am thankful that the good weather has allowed so many local businesses to set up on their sidewalks providing them with the opportunity to stay open.

    God is good….we will get through this.

  24. I’m thankful for reminders that there is SO MUCH to be thankful for in this life, and even more so in the next when you’re serving God. I’m generally a grateful person, but I slipped today a lot. I’ve been run over by so many reminders ever since I got home from work. Thanks for being part of that!

  25. I am so thankful for my husband. Without him, we would not have our children who in turn gave us our grandchildren. We enjoy much the same things which makes volunteering, traveling, and life in general so much more enjoyable. He is certainly a patient man. We seem to balance each other nicely. When I have bad days, he brightens them. I try to do the same for him when he is down. We have had 48 great years together and I look forward to another 48.
