Giving Thanks


I noticed on several blogs where many of you take part in Thankful Thursday. I wanted to take this opportunity to list a few things I am thankful for.

I am thankful for the air I breathe each day!!! To wake up each Morning and be given a new chance to get it right.

This time of year I am thankful for the changing of the seasons. I love the Fall of the year the best. I enjoy seeing sunflowers lifting their heads to the skies. Leaves in an array of colors floating and swirling to the ground. The squirrels moving briskly about storing their food for the winter. The sounds of laughing children outside my bedroom window in the morning as they are waiting for the school bus. Then in the afternoon hurrying in their homes to change their clothes, so they can see what new adventures await for them.

I am thankful for, home, family, friends, my church family. For food to eat and a bed to sleep in.

May you have a week filled with so many things to be thankful for that you will not be able to count them all!!!!!

Such a lovely list of things to be thankful for! I've been so busy with the garden veggies these last few days, I'm not sure if I'm thankful for it all! lol Ok, ok, you know I'm just teasing and I am thankful for all the fresh veggies that I'm able to take out of the garden every day:-) It was so hot the last few days but now a cold front has set in and it feels so good...I love the changing of season into Autumn as well!! xoxo
