PhotoHunt Theme: Thankful

"THANKFUL" is the theme this week.
~~~~~
I am THANKFUL for all of the usual things, such as my family and friends, my two cats, my home, good food...the list goes on! I am also THANKFUL for such a lovely world we live in - I especially am THANKFUL for all the different seasons. They are each special in their own way. I am THANKFUL for Winter when it is cold and everything turns beautiful in the snow.
I am THANKFUL for the wildlife in Winter; such as this egret that we found in the water. I wouldn't want to be in that cold water but he seemed to be quite happy. He was probably THANKFUL when he found some fish to eat! Then I am THANKFUL for Spring. Spring seems to arrive just when we are getting tired of all the coldness of Winter. This baby cow seemed THANKFUL to be out in the sunshine. Another thing I am THANKFUL for in Spring are the beautiful tulips that we can see everywhere. These specific tulips were for my husband's birthday and we were both THANKFUL for the Bailey's and delicious cannollis that we had for dessert. And certainly, I am very THANKFUL for my husband! Once it is Summer I am THANKFUL for the warm days and the profusion of beautiful flowers that my husband grows in the backyard. I especially like the morning glories. I am THANKFUL for the Farmer's Markets in our area where we can get locally grown vegetables. And I am always THANKFUL for Autumn after the long days of heat and humidity of Summer start to wear on one. The cooler weather and the incredible colors of the leaves changing colors are a wonderful change. I am THANKFUL when I meet new friends while walking around my neighborhood. This little cat was so happy to see me and I was glad that I had my cell phone/camera with me! Oh, another thing to be THANKFUL for! I mentioned earlier that I was THANKFUL for my two cats and I am always THANKFUL when Willow joins me at the computer. Although I am sometimes a little less than THANKFUL if she walks across the keyboard and changes or deletes whatever I am working at on the computer!
As always, you can find more of Tnchick's Photohunters here!

Excellent post for the theme. I loved all of your photographs and what a good sequence to show what you are thankful for. I also love seasons. We are getting all seasons in one this week going from rain to snow and then back to spring like weather.

Yes, I'm thankful for so many things like these. Life is wonderful.
I grew morning glories once, on my south-facing windowsill. I'd love to be able to grow them outside.

What a lovely post. We all have much to be thankful for and being part of the cat blogoshere and meeting such wonderful people is one of them.

You were so kind to leave a comforting comment upon my beloved Jake’s passing last month. The cat blogosphere is a truly caring community, and I am honored to be a part of it. Thank you for your support during this difficult time for me. Jake’s memory will forever live in my heart and mind.

You're a very talented photographer and colorist. The bright yellow tulips in the vivid blue vase are spectacular.
