Giving Thanks...

Please join me as I join Lynn at   The Vintage Nest
along with many others as we give our thanks ...
the first and most important thing I am grateful for is my God, my Jesus, the Holy Spirit and ministering angels and the many, many blessings I have undeservedly received.  For the people who have prayed for me and loved me.  So grateful for my family, my Sweetie my husband who is not perfect but who is perfect for me.
My precious children who have grown into people I am proud and delighted to know and their spouses who have overcome adversity to also be people I love and am proud to have in my family.  My GRANDson who definitely put the Grand in Grandchild.
Those are the MOST important things ... but I am grateful for a few others too.  I am grateful for you, dear readers and especially those who visit and leave comments and for those who follow my blog. Thank you!
I am grateful for my health and that while we are not rich in money we are rich in everything that is important.
I am grateful for dishwashers, washing machines and dryers and of all the modern conveniences... I am most grateful for indoor plumbing!  ... I am grateful for our kittys and that we were able to rescue some of His beautiful creatures, they have given us far more that we gave them. And while God don't make junk, we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves so I am pretty sure I am going to be grateful for Lifestyle Lifts !!!
Now if ya run over to see Pam at Kitty and Me Designs
you can enter a sweet give away.  May you have all the blessings I do and many, many more.   Ya'll be sweet and come back soon.

It is so important for us to remember what is truly important. I apologize for not following your blog sooner, for some reason I just thought you had a website and I kept going there. Oh me :)
Anyways, I will be regularly now.
Have a happy weekend, Kim

I am thankful that my studio re-do is done! On my blog you can see a photo of my entry way table that has a very sweet cake that someone special sent to me. lol I love it, and I still am so happy you thought of me.

Yes, there is so much to be grateful for - even the computer to communicate through. Glad you included indoor plumbing, and let me add the paper to go along with the bathroom. So often they are overlooked, but try living a live without them.

Francie, have a wonderful holiday -have a happy everyday.

There are whisperings that maybe, just maybe, there may be a wedding here. I really doubt it happens but we were asked last night what we thought about it. They come home today and we will have a big pow wow around the dinner table tonight. (grin)....Happy turkey Day Francie
