Days Filled With Blessings

Received rains yesterday and over night but sun is shining this morning..as yards and fields are overflowing with water...
In my home today... laundry is being done... light house cleaning again... some dishes are being started for tomorrows Thanksgiving celebration...
Last night as I lay in bed with the rain beating hard against my bedroom window... I was filled with emotion as I was so very thankful to have a warm shelter and warm bed ... well knowing that there are many that will not... I couldn't help but take that time to offer up Thanks to God for this what we call a small blessing but when you think of it ... it is such a large blessing... I thought of ones that would not be having the 250.00 worth of food we will be feasting upon and it brought sadness... Oh the blessings we call small. Tom and I's families will be here as one big unit... although I get overwhelmed by it all and very tired by the end of the day.... I know I am very blessed... Whatever plans you may have... with family or otherwise... enjoy and take moments to be thankful...
Many bogging friends are not celebrating our American holiday tradition of Thanksgiving but to them I would say take minutes to be thankful with all the wonderful that surrounds you as we shouldn't have to have a holiday to do this... Sending best of wishes and happiness and blessings to all... Happy Thanksgiving.....

We celebrate Thanksgiving. It is one of our favorite holidays. This year I am thankful for my hubby's new job. It has made us be able to have the things that we need and some things that we want. We are so grateful. We are baking pies, making cookies for the police/fire hall, tearing up bread for stuffing, and last minute cleaning.

God Bless and have a wonderful day.

This is the way my mind works: I read '...some light house cleaning' and thought, 'she cleans a lighthouse?'. (In my defense, the thought was only there for a moment before I realised; but there it was nevertheless.)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. xx

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Marietta! Enjoy the festivities! You know that we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in our country, but every single day we are grateful for the family and friends in our lives, the life we're able to lead, the fact that we're still in good health and so on. We, too, feel truly blessed. Take care, Ira
