My Blessings

I haven't much time today so I will mke this brief. As I prepare for this holiday I am keeping positive thoughts and taking my sweet time with everything because I am determined not to fuss this year. As I go about my plans I am thinking of all I am grateful for. (Do you keep a Gratitude Journal? It is truly an uplifting feeling to write all the good things in your day and thank God for his grace and the light that shines on you.) I am grateful for my husband and children. Adjectives cannot describe these people in my life that I have been blessed with. I am grateful for the roof over my head and how hard my husband works to provide for us. I am blessed with good health and a happy disposition, a sunny outlook on life, a heart bursting with love for all things. There is so much more but I have to end now. I want to make Thanksgiving a wonderful day for my family and friends and I promise not to fuss. It is the love in the room as we sit down for our feast and the light that shines upon us all that I have the most gratitude for. God bless you all.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I can't tell you how much it means that you took the time to help me raise money for Hudson Cradle.

I enjoyed reading Blondie's Journal and loved the von Goethe
quote...so true! Now if only I would follow that. :-)

I'll be back to visit!

Hi there new found friend.
It's early Sunday morning and the house is now quiet from all of the Thanksgiving bustle.

We always go far out when it comes to food, but the commercial end of these early established holidays leaves me cold.

It seems a mochery to our heavely Father and what we truly should be thankful for.

I am NOT a "day after tThanksgiving, busiest shopping day of the year" kind of person, are you?

We actually decided no gifts this year, and minor and soft but lovely decor to honor Christ's birth.
