Thankful Thursday!

 Linking up again with Rebecca Jo at

It's thankful Thursday and for the record I find things to be thankful for in every day, but it's fun to link up with other thankful folks on a set date!

 I am thankful for many things far greater than today's list, but I'm thankful none the less.

I'm thankful for Netflix, I just signed up a couple days ago.  Fun to look through all the movies we've missed.  We rarely go to movies, for me the price is insane!! I go only if it's a movie best seen on the big screen, such as The Wizard of Oz, Titanic etc...The first Movie we watched was Catching Fire, the sequel to Hunger Games. Thumbs up!

Also new to be thankful for, Amazon Prime. Free shipping on any orders (which are many in a years time), and most importantly, something Netflix is lacking, Donton Abbey!! I'm very excited to find out what I've missed that so many have enjoyed for several seasons now. I've watch only two episodes but I was hooked after the the first one.

I am most thankful for my friend Jane, we have been out of touch for almost 10 months.  The sad thing is she lives near by, and attends my church (different service). We wave and exchange hugs and continue on. Really!
Life will get in the way of whats important if we let it.  I am making a conscious effort to be a better friend this year and Jane was where I needed to start.  She is wise, loving, and best of all she serves me tea out of  beautiful ceramic tea pots!! Thankful to have her back in my routine.

Thankful I have started  following a blog called Mundane Faithfulness. A beautifully written blog that is the journey of Kara Tippets battle with cancer. It's a battle she is nearing the end of but so inspiring.  She is an amazing example of faithfulness and thankfulness in the midst of the hard times. She has put living into perspective to say the least. Looking for grace in the hard! I just finished her book "the hardest peace".  This is a book for everyone in need of grace, especially if you have fought the fight of cancer. Really love her writing style, her faith, her willingness to share her journey authentically. I can't recommend it strongly enough, there is much to be gleaned from it. My hope is you don't let the subject matter keep you from it.

That's my current thoughts on thankfulness! What are you thankful for today?

Thankfulness is what echos from my heart today ~


  1. I have debated back & forth on getting amazon prime. As much as I use Amazon, it really only makes sense :) Yipee for good movies... good friends... good reads that touch the heart!

    Thanks for linking up again with me!

  2. I love Netflix too. We've only had it for maybe a year. But it's only been in the last couple of months that I've really been using it. Currently I'm watching Gilmore Girls and thoroughly enjoying it.

    I just cancelled my Amazon Prime. Only because hubby and I both had it and there's no reason to pay double. I can just do my ordering through his account. But I do really love Amazon Prime.

  3. Great list! Have you watched Doc Martin? It's a wonderful PBS show and I think it's on Netflix.

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog! as I read some of my comments, I inadvertently pressed "delete" instead of publish..ugh. so, your comment won't show up on my blog. :( I am currently reading Hardest Peace! it is so good and giving me some much needed perspective. I split Amazon Prime with one of my sons!! I love it!

  5. I was very thankful to order most all of the Christmas gifts online with NO shipping charges! :)

    I'm also thankful that a friend of mine whom I haven't seen in l7 years is moving back here in a few months. I've not been very good at keeping touch with several old friends, but it's time - NOW.

    Love you, sweet Debi!

  6. Enjoyed your list. I have been considering Netflix but just have not done it yet.

  7. Oh, I have both Netflix and Amazon Prime and LOVE them both. I watch movies while I walk on my treadmill each morning and it's through Netflix on my Ipad that I watch them. And, Amazon Prime, I almost blew them up with my Christmas shopping.

    I'm going to check out Mundane Faithfulness, sounds like a real testimony for sure.
