Thankful Anyway Thursday

It's easy to be thankful for the good stuff, can you be thankful for the not so good?
(as serious or light-hearted as you like)

Solutions aren't always straight-forward.
Years can't be reduced to pros and cons.
I'm not a 'black or white' person.
Is it limbo, is it acceptance?
What am I left with?

I keep swinging... being thankful anyway.

  1. I would love to have a swing on that!
    Here's to being-with being-in-limbo xx

  2. Such a beautiful picture, and thoughtful words to go along.

  3. I participated in your project this week. Thought you might like to know.

    And I'm a swinging girl myself, I figure moving is a good thing.

  4. i think those of us who've not always known what the "right" thing to do or say or be, or whatever, is - we're better off. life is so often ambiguous and confusing and chaotic. if we can be comfortable in the midst of all that...then yay! :) and yes what a beautiful photo~

  5. I ended up having a thankful moment! Lovely post and idea...

  6. Beautiful photo. And I loved what you wrote before about swimming. Alas, when I try it, I get sick and dizzy for hours afterwards. But it is romantic to read about :-)

    Your post brought a sadness to my mind, I don't know why. I hope you are happy.

  7. Gorgoeous picture and sad (yeah I thought so too), but poignant words. Presence. Be there in the good and in the bad.

  8. Oh, I feel like I am in limbo right now...

    But then I realize it's only a portion of my life that feels that way...there are still some things that are straight-forward, and I'm trying to focus on those.

    Beautiful words, beautiful picture. Thanks.

    (I posted my TATh, too)

  9. i needed this one:


  10. I hear you on this one, and know it all too well myself. Shall we just keep swinging together lovely one?

  11. Ah, so many swing.... swinging sisters :)

  12. What a beeeeeautiful swing and photo! My favourite type. Am such a swinger, but I find being "up the duff" and swinging makes me feel giddy...weird!

  13. oh girl, you are talking to a libra...i know all about the swinging, the greys, the limbo...i tell myself i'm missing out on less by considering more, but it can be a lot of work finding a place to be comfortable, can't it?
