Ten Things of Thankful: Friends, Fathers, Family, and a Whole Lot of Thankfulness Edition

The last time I posted, we were celebrating the 6th anniversary of the Ten Things of Thankful, and what a celebration it was! We combined with the Finish the Sentence Friday blog hop, and so many bloggers participated. I enjoyed reading everyone's posts, and it became a reunion of sorts. What a fun way to start the summer months!

We extended the time the link remained open, so you'll probably want to go back and make sure you didn't miss reading any of the posts. 

Also, I mentioned in my last post that I have some Ten Things of Thankful sticky-notepads to give to anyone who would like one. I still have some available, so if you'd like one, let me know in a comment and I'd be happy to mail one out to you.

I eagerly and excitedly joined this wonderful community of bloggers. Through the years, participants, hosts, and co-hosts have come and gone, and as life gets busy and situations change, that's totally understandable. And while everyone is always welcome to link up with the TToT, and we LOVE it when new bloggers join us, this week will also be a reunion, with several familiar faces stopping by to say hello. In addition, Kristi of Finding Ninee, who was one of the early co-hosts, and hosts a blog hop called Finish the Sentence Friday, is using "Ten Things of Thankful" as this week's prompt, so we welcome all who join us via FTSF. 

I am thankful:

1. For Lizzi for masterminding the TToT and for all her effort spent in building a supportive, welcoming community.

2. For…

Six Sentence Story: Mountain

The gentle stir of unrest grew until the rumblings could no longer be ignored. She knew that big changes were coming, even though some of those living closest to her thought she would never be anything other than firm and steadfast. She felt the pressure growing from deep within; a rage that needed an outlet. Finally, on May 18, 1980, she could take it no longer, and with a rush of emotion, she transformed the top third of her peak into a billowing cloud of steam, dust, and ash. Boulders flew and entire forests bowed down to her. No longer, she thought, would anyone dare to underestimate the power of Mt. St. Helens.


Linking up again this week with Six Sentence Stories. Prompt word: mountain. Go read the other entries, and feel free to submit your own!
