the Granddaughter

She lived with us for four months; it was easy, pleasant, and a blessing.  She just moved out.

I'm grateful for that opportunity.

She's in Africa....


And, I see pictures nearly every day.

We communicate almost every day.

I love modern technology and am grateful for it.

I take my ITouch to exercise and am reading
JESUS THE CHRIST while walking the treadmill.

The book is big, the ITouch is's so convenient.

I love technology.

I'm very grateful.

Music is such a great thing...

What if I couldn't hear the music?

I'm so grateful for the ability to hear!

It's a break; no shopping, no running around, no errands (except maybe church-related), no business...just being with family and good friends.

I'm thankful for that.


It was such great news...

BF finally got a job after 7 months of unemployment...Thank you, Heavenly Father.

AND, his twin sons also got jobs at the local movie theater.  Thank you again, Heavenly Father.

I'm grateful for Allen's job all those years which now provides us with a modest income each month....enough to live quite comfortable.  I am overwhelmed with gratitude.

I'm very thankful.  And, in spite of some other discouraging news, this was a very bright spot indeed.
