Ten on Tuesday...on Wednesday

Am I thankful? Most of the time. I have to admit, every now and then I can feel sorry for myself or I can want more than I need. But when I think about gratitude, I can say that  I have blessings by the buckful.

And, in no particular order:
God, who somehow seems to keep blessing me, even though I don't deserve it.
My husband. I really, really don't know how I could exist without him. He's alive and healthy.
My family: kids and grandbabies, inlaws and outlaws, mom and all the rest...I love them, and they love me.
An adopted pug named Birdie...who is always excited to see me.
Good neighbors
A comfortable home that I get to care for because she's old and beautiful and deserves to live a long life.
My friends...especially the ones that know all my dirt and still choose to hang out with me.
A job that means something besides a paycheck.
The ability to make stuff and share it.
Pie. Oh, and stuffing. And homemade rolls. And pizza. I am thankful for pizza. And cupcakes, too. And Cheetohs, now that I think about it....

It's not a bad life, my friends. Happy Thanksgiving.

" I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want."


  1. Happy Thanksgiving Lynne.
    We all have many blessings if we care to look.
    Cheetohs - really?

  2. At church last Sunday, the preacher handed out cards for us to write what we are thankful for. I wrote several things and filled up the card but thought I should write one word- "everything".

    Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.

  3. Well Said Lady! There's SO much to be thankful for. I'm thankful for having met you. You are one of the most gracious people I know (smile).Happy Thanksgiving!
