Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: A Nice Big Bunch of Hoppers in 2017

thankful thursday blog hop brian - Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!Hello everyone and welcome to the final Thankful Thursday Blog Hop of 2017. We love having the opportunity each week to share the many things for which we are thankful and we love it that y’all hop along with us. It sure is hard to believe that 2017 is coming to a close and we’ll be starting a brand new year in a few days.

Today though, I want to say how thankful I am for all of you who participated in our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop this year. Not counting today, we’ve had 1,252 entries this year. Not only is that a wonderful number, but that is a lot of things you all were thankful for in 2017. All those thankfuls certainly make this mancats whiskers grin up.

There’s not much doubt that in 2018 we’ll all have times of ups and downs. But even in the down times there’s always something to be thankful for, so be on the lookout for it each and every day. When we stop, ponder and realize that we have many things to be thankful for, the difficulties we may face become a little bit easier to deal with.

Thank you all for being here and for hopping along with us and even if you’re not a hopper, thanks for reading the posts from so many of us. We’re truly thankful for you, our friends.

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Brian thank YOU for hosting! I am glad I was able to participate at least a few times…….what you said here is spot on “But even in the down times there’s always something to be thankful for, so be on the lookout for it each and every day. When we stop, ponder and realize that we have many things to be thankful for, the difficulties we may face become a little bit easier to deal with.”

Now that you put it that was, the good does far outweigh the bad. You’re definitely one of the good. I wish I could post more on Thursday but that never seems to happen.

Brian, thank you for hosting this blog hop and having a theme which reminds us all of the good and positive things. It is far too easy for the negative things to seem overwhelming and ignore all that is good. IMHO, this hop is very good for restoring balance and a realistic perspective…. or should I say purrspective?

Hope 2018 is your best year so far!

I am mighty glad that we have friends to share with, and to get to see and understand the world as it is through others eyes. Thanks for all your hard work and for sharing..

We do our best to be here for the hops, they are such a positive part of our week.

One quote has stuck with us this year that made us stop and think. “Wherever you are, Be all there” We think this means and says a lot about not rushing but remaining in the present and loving and appreciating our cats our families and our friends.

Thank you for being brilliant.

There is a lot to be thankful for and we need to concentrate on that and not the little things that sometimes go wrong.
We have enjoyed your Thankful Thursdays too 🙂
