Thankful Thursday

We have been watching the news, seeing the attack in Georgia and watching the Olympics as I'm sure many of you have. Wasn't the opening ceremonies an amazing production! I got to thinking what it would be like to live in those countries, one under attack and one controlled by communism. As I thought about it I became very thankful that I lived here in the United States, where we have freedom. So today I am thankful that I live in America.

Don't forget to click on the daisy on the sidebar at the right to visit other bloggers who are participating in Thankful Thursday.

What are you thankful for today?

  1. Ohhhhhh yes, I agree. I am also thankful I live in this great country. I am thankful everyday for what we have.
    I am watching the olympics. I give up every night about 10:30PM, so I miss a lot of it.
    Glad you also are listening to talking books.

  2. I have not watched or will watch any of the Olympics but Georgia is very much in our news as the First Lady there is a Dutch woman. A Dutch cameraman was just killed two days ago there also. You are very right that where we live is a blessing. I don't live in the US but here in Holland, everyone has a good life. There is a high level of quality of life here. I am also thankful as each Thursday, that I can visit you my friend.

    Hugs ~

  3. I am thankful for this wonderful rain we are having today!

    Can't wait to see what your project is you are working on in the previous post!

  4. Rhondi,
    I put up a thankful post on my blog, if you would like to add me to your thankful thursday links I would love it.

    I agree with you, we forget what wonderful freedom we enjoy.

    Blessings, Karen

  5. We do live in a wonderful country with as many opportunities as we choose to take advantage of. I've been enjoying watching the Olympics. I am so impressed by the stamina, endurance and motivation of the athletes. They are truly phenomenal - every single one of them.

  6. My thoughts and prayers are in the same directions. We are so incredibly blessed with our freedom.

  10. Rhondi,

    I just found your blog via Heidi at Celebrate the Seasons.

    What a beautiful blog you have. I must visit again.

    I hope you get a chance to stop by and say hello. I'm at Sunbonnet Cottage.


  11. I am so thankful to live in a country where we are free. Recently I began to think in depth about the freedoms we are afforded. I talked to a couple who are originally from Viet Nam. They described in detail the conditions in their country.

    Your blog is great - I'll be back.

  12. Thankful Thursday - what a great idea! I guess I'm always thankful for my job and my husband's job. I never ever take that for granted.

  13. I am thankful that I'm going to be a grandmother for the second time come December. I will have a granddaughter, sister to my grandson. Her name will be Marley Ross. I am looking forward to meeting her!

  14. Hi Rhondi, you mean it's Thursday again? hahaha I'm still "in." Will post today for Thankful Thursday.

    I've been watching some of the Olympics ~ the opening ceremony was incredible.


  16. Hi Rhondi -
    I'm thankful to be home. Safe and sound with my sweetheart. And for life and each moment God give me.

    P.S. - If you read my blog entry today you will understand why.

  17. I'm going to do a "thankful Thursday" on my blog. I borrowed your picture and will give you the credit.

  18. I, too, am thankful to live in the country I do and to enjoy the freedoms that I enjoy . . . and for the people who have fought and given their lives to maintain it!

  19. I am thankful for many more things than I have time to put in here, but the top few are my sweet Lord, my sweet hubby & kids.
    Love & Prayers,

    I am thankful that in my age (80) I can blogging and meet people around the world.
