Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Day Four of Thanks

Giving Thanks Post Day 4

How thankful I am that I'm able to hear.
People talking - first wrote down voices, but thought you might think they are voices only I can hear. : )
Wind blowing through the trees
Rain on my umbrella
Corn blowing in the wind
The rustling of leaves as I walk along
Children playing
The sound of my car when I let off on the gas - ooh that is a nice sound
Cows mooing
Horses neighing 
Coins dropping into my bank
Train whistles 

Pastor Leatherman's sermons. : )
 All these and many more.
 What a blessing it is to hear.
May I  never take it for granted.

  1. What a lovely post. I pray a gratitude prayer every, well most, mornings. I have done it since I had breast cancer in 1999 and it really keeps things in perspective for me. But I have never gone into these details. You have inspired me.

  2. One reason I'm really enjoying these posts is that you are mentioning some things we take for granted like our hearing. We should all be giving thanks for our hearing! Thank you for reminding us!

  3. You really are an insightful person and observant. Letting up on the gas...not a sound I have ever even been aware of. Prolly the difference between an Impala and your cute sports car!

    1. I did pay attention to the sound of letting up on the gas the other day after reading this. Still pretty sure that your car sounds different from mine.

  4. Wonderful post, I have a few people in my family with hearing problems and I know they would love to be able to clearly hear every item you have listed above. Enjoy your day!

  5. Beautiful post Karen! It is the little things in life we would miss the most.

  6. Loving your thankful posts! So many times we go through our days at such a pace that we don't give ourselves time to realize how thankful we are able to be.

  7. An excellent thing to be grateful for. My sweet friend is deaf, and I know that it presents so many challenges for her, on a daily basis. Not only am I blessed to be able to have my hearing, but blessed to not have all the challenges that come with hearing loss as well.


  8. As our parents are beginning to lose their hearing as they age and it makes me even more thankful for my hearing.


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
