She did me a great kindness sooze
I would also like to thank Susan J Hamilton... because you thanked her.
The plumber who just left. My pump in the basement was making a noise, he was down there less than a minute, the noise stopped, he handed me a tube of oil and waved off offer of payment.
I’d like to thank everyone who is voting to oust all those in our Congress that vote for hate-filled policies.
I'm with weavinfool 100%.
Yes Yes Yes!
I would like to thank all the little ol' ladies who stop me in stores just to tell me my walker's handles are too high or too low, hence my looking like a question mark. I don't have the heart to tell them it's just my lousy posture.
The technician who was supposed to be here on Friday to check our LPG tank, it’s Tuesday and we are still waiting. I’d like to thank him but I can’t.
Not quite the spirit of the piece xx lol
I would like to thank my siblings for being completely amazing through this last year. It has been hell but we have pulled together and like Winston Churchill said "when you are going through hell keep going". I am very lucky to have them.
I'd like to thank my eldest son and DIL for cinema tickets for me and 4 granddaughters...we went to see Christopher Robin this morning. I really appreciated it.
everybody who calls me friend.
Well said that woman
Today, I would like to thank my husband for making me a G&T and reminding me to log off Facebook because I was yelling at my poor MAC! ;) xox
My father-in-law, who passed away early last week at age 81. He was a gentle, quiet man who generally went along with whatever my mother-in-law wanted. He was buried yesterday in a plain, pine box, without benefit of a minister and only his wife, children and most of his 6 grandchildren present. I was... stunned. But he'd have been fine with it, and I thank him for that kind of influence.
My mum, for giving me the best possible start in life that she could. Everything that I am today is down to her. Always missed but never forgotten.
Elise and Athene..a family perspective...nice
My friend Imed from Tunisia. He has always been there for me, through thick and thin, even when I swore I didn't need help. Today he took me out for lunch to celebrate my 60th birthday (24 September and I spent it in Sicily). As we walked in he told the restaurant owner it was my birthday!!!! So at the end of the lunch they brought over wonderful Lebanese sweets on the house and wished me a happy birthday. I was too embarrassed to say "oh it was on 24 September" but he said "hey, I'm taking you to lunch for your birthday so what". But all that aside, he has always been there for me through thick and thin (through the beatings from my ex) and wasn't afraid to give me a metaphorical kick up the butt when I needed it. Good man Imed!
Thank you, John, for choosing to Go Gently rather than any other way, and for being the gentle soul that you are. And thanks to my Guardian Angel when I broke only my right ankle on Saturday when I stepped on a black kitten on the stairs, lost my balance and fell with my right leg twisted under me. Imagine what could have happened! The dear kitty is fine because my old reflexes worked and I pulled my left foot away in time so that my full weight didn't come down on her!
Thank you ruth
My dear friend A who posted back to me a CD Walkman I lent her, and tucked in 2 bars of raw dark chocolate, mmmm. What a lovely surprise :)
I want to thank my hubby of almost thirty years. I had Achilles' tendon surgery in August. It failed in September. I had a second surgery almost three weeks ago. I've been in a cast or boot, on a knee scooter, since August 3rd, and I have been less than fun to live with. I thank him for 1) sticking around and 2) taking such good care of me.
The manager where I work for working so hard and sharing fun banter and a laugh with me.
Buy her a custard tart for tea time
I would like to say, thank you for the music,the songs I'm singing, and, thanks for all the joy they're bringing.Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty, it's Going Gently, do do do do do !!!! xxx
I would like to thank my two cats, Sophie and Zeus, for always giving me unconditional love, cuddling at night and making me laugh when they play.
They never fail
My sign class friends for their support today.
The man who sat next to me on the bus back from Yarmouth and chatted with me all the way. We talked about the football match he was on his way to see, the mates he was going to meet, the pub and then we talked about what I had been doing in Yarmouth. We continued with snippets about football and property and then parted company when the bus pulled into the station. Made for a very pleasant journey on the substitute bus for train.
Lovely even rachel x
My husband, for helping me understand and live with my mental illness. His patience, kindness and humour make life worth living. He shines a light in the darkest moments, and I adore him. Plus, his nose goes up and down like a camel when he chews! x
I would like to thank you for putting a smile on my face even though you are going through nine kinds of hell. Big smiley ‘ta everso’.xxx
There are so many reasons I'm thankful for all the cheerful people I encounter on my daily walks who say good morning it starts the day of right.
I would like to thank the staff of the neo natal intensive care at the August Morvan hospital in Brest . Whilst visiting on holiday Teddy was born ten weeks early at 2lbs 2ozs six weeks later he has doubled his weight and will be transferred to the uk later this week . I am so grateful for the care and support he received .
So right x
Lots of people. Including but not limited to the people in the blogosphere who share their lives with me.
All the teachers in the land who are gearing up for their protest marches on Saturday. They're only asking for a 10% pay rise and yet they have to take to the streets to be heard. They're worth every single penny that they earn (and yes, I know that every other public sector worker in the land deserve their payrises too).
Yes standing up to things is so important.
Lots of people who have helped me get through the months since my dearest farmer died - all my friends here, my family, my blogging friends and especially you John - your e mails through David's terrible illness, your offer of a phone call any time of the day or night - you will never know how much I valued it. Now I am on the mend and it grieves me that you are suffering and I can't do much to help and support you except send positive thoughts.
You've done more than enough oldfriend x
Courtney Bronson, a work colleague of mine, who found a creative work around, to help a friend of mine get access to an 1801 page book she needed access to.
Thank you for the post card xxx
Diane, of Sun City, Arizona, who provided material for my blog today.
I would like to thank anyone for washing their hands after they have visited the bathroom, or worse.
My physiotherapist. He's taken me from not wanting to walk at all to much more comfortable in just two visits.

Sorry for deleting my other comment,in hindsight I thought mentioning anyone is inept was uncalled for.
My husband, Doug, for loving me and for helping me through my late husband Max's years in care with dementia. (We were introduced just after his wife had died and Max had gone into care and got married 7 months after Max died). I never expected a second chance at life.
My 3 siblings for sharing their joy for life, their time and efforts, and their good will with family, friends, and strangers. In their own individual ways they make the world a better place.
I would like to thank the store clerk who remembered that it was my birthday! My husband didn't even remember it. His is in two weeks, if I remember.
My father in law. I met him when I was 23 and I have adored him ever since. He never deferentiated between myself and his children. When my husband first left my in laws where there to support me. I would walk over hot coals for him. He is a gentle gentleman.
My new doctor, whom I just met today. She's friendly, and that's always a plus.
I'm thankful for my doctor before my current one. He was only here for two years, but he was so kind and competent, which I can't say for the two before that. He was the first to tell me to always to carry my fast-acting astham inhaler, which I hadn't been doing because I'd never really needed it - I had some bronchial trouble for a year or so and it seemed to mostly go away. I wasn't even going to ask to have the prescription renewed, but he insisted. Yesterday at work we had plasterers in and they were sanding and creating a fine dust. I reacted badly to it after only a brief time and left, but needed to use my inhaler. I was so glad to have it.
My daughter for being the only one I can count on.
My dear brother for coming back into our lives after leaving a difficult marriage. We love you!
My fella, we’ve been married for 40 years and he still loves me regardless and now that I’m ill brings me home a coffee which I’m now drinking, takes me to appointments, scans without him life wouldn’t be the same. Jo
I would like to thank my oldest son for all that he does for me. Not only does he have a busy high-powered job, but he also looks after many of my UK affairs. AND, he's just a very nice person.
My husband for working so hard on my new home. And Rick for making me smile everyday.
I'd like to thank Mary, Winnie et al. Their adventures never fail to put a smile on my face.
My friends who have been like sisters and shown me much kindness in the past year, when my own family have chosen to ignore me.
I'd like to thank the incredible staff of the NHS who always went the extra mile to make the last nine months bearable. Last week my husband passed away peacefully, at home with me beside him, thanks to the NHS who made it possible. He had Glioblastoma Multiforme and in that time endured three brain surgeries, two bouts of sepsis, meningitis, neutropenia and a fractured vertebra, six weeks of daily chemo and radio and six hospitalisations. I am thankful he was in my life for 40 years
Well I'm back with my Consultant today so I certainly do feel I should be thanking her and her wonderful NHS team. Without them I'd be well on my way to the exit door now. And in addition John I'd like to thank you as always for being a good friend. We've been through some times - good and not so good - together!
Indeed we have old bean and I wouldn't be without you
Your blog is great. I read a lot of interesting things from it. Thank you very much for sharing. Hope you will update more news in the future.short life gamerun 3 unblockedslope
Thank you's to my family and friends for all their loving care the past few months.
I thank my daughter in law and son for including me in their lives. When I enter their house and spend time with my grand children I feel at peace with myself and the world, and there is joy.
Today, I brought my car in for service and to have my snow tires put on. They were pleasant and funny. They do a good job. I am always grateful to my family.
A thank you for the great fall weather day . . .First Blush of Fallen Leaves I managed to rake, blow, move a ton of leaves from the yard into the woods! (Three tarps full, one wheelbarrow full of sticks, I was thankful my Mister Irish hauled the tarps.)
My Miss Chef, of course, for making life an adventure, and patiently waiting out my frustration and protestations while I adapt to change.
I'd like to thank my friend, Mary, for coming over just after I'd hurt my foot to bring me lunch and check on me. It really brightened my spirits.
My father......for protecting his kids from harm and keeping them all safe as best he could with what he had. Thank you Dad!
George who went with me to the Hospital for an MRI>
