Thankful Thursday is our weekly meme focused on finding things to be thankful for in our everyday life - and sharing with our Oasis community!

We invite you to participate on your own blog and share the link in the comments below - or just give us your answer here.

...& the luck of the Irish to you!!

Today's THANKFUL THURSDAY ~ I'm still alive.

Reflecting on all that enriches our lives is healthy. So often in the writing world, writers lose focus because of disappointments or 'so-close' achievements. But in each frown there is a smile. Granted, you have to stand on your head to see it but it is there. 

Am I being silly. Yes. Originally, I was going to give thanks for the diversity of genres we have available to us: to read, to explore, to write. But then...I fell down the stairs. Seriously. I had on my favorite Nightmare Before Christmas skeleton slippers and 'whoosh', there I went. Mind you; I had my coffee mug in hand.

So, yeah, I'm rather thankful that I didn't break my neck or scald myself with steaming coffee. I also give thanks for how quickly the voices of my four kids and hubby rushed to the bottom of the stairs...from the kitchen. 

"Ma, you okay?" and "Hey, babe, what was all that racket?" I hear while cursing them all in my head... gratefully, of course.

Simple but true. How often do we forget to be thankful for simply silly things? 

Any simply silly stuff you're thankful for this week?


  1. In honor of St. Patty's day, I participated in the meme with a post called "Lucky Me" --

    And Sheri - we're all very grateful that you didn't break your neck either!!

  2. Goodness! I'm thankful you didn't break your neck, but at least you got a clever post out of it. :)

    Here are the simple, silly things I'm thankful for this week:

  3. I did my Thankful Thursday over at my blog:

  4. It's the simple things that make life worth it!
    Here are mine :)

    Glad the fall wasn't a bad one!

  5. oh, good grief, Sher! jeebus! I did that coming *up* from the basement when we were in Indy the first time--laundry basket in hand, no less. Banged the crap outta my shin--I'd dropped JRM at work, so he could run home (he's a runner). I was sitting there with two crib babies thinking I'd broke my leg... God is good~

    ehrm... not to make it about me! LOL! So glad you're OK! :D


Breaths that matter...
