So what are you thankful for this year?  I was thinking about that today as I cleaned my sewing room.  UGH  The room is a mess it’s looking better but needs a total makeover.

As tradition has it, we usually go around the table and tell something we are thankful for.  I was thinking about this as I was cleaning.  We are all so long-winded the food is getting cold as we go on and on.  This year I think we will gather and talk about thankfulness and then get the food on the table. There could be as many as 20 of us around the table this year and I am thankful for each family.

 I told Bob today, there is no use in being cranky we just have to be thankful for each day that we are healthy and normal.  What started all of this is a trip to the grocery store yesterday.  Bob never shops with me but for some reason yesterday he drove me around town to do some errands and the last thing we did was stop at the grocery store.  I noticed the longer we shopped the more unhappy he became.  He started looking at things a little more and  I could see the wheels turning.  Finally I said, “you just have to ignore the prices and be thankful we can afford to buy groceries.” 

I am thankful for a warm bed, for the little pieces of  junk I have around the house, for pumpkins.  My family and for each of you.  I am thankful I have a Lord and Savior to believe in.  Happy Thanksgiving.


What are You Thankful For?

Today I want to specifically give thanks to God for the people in my life, the small things around me and the big.  I want to acknowledge that without Him in my life nothings else would matter.

I am thankful for:

1. My man–he is kind, sweet and lets me be me.

3. Church–a place to go and feel at home.

4. Work–I love my jobs

5. Cool mornings–and perfect weather

6. A little boy named Lincoln who answered the phone while his parents were sleeping, what a fun conversation we had.
