And, I am grateful!

Eyesight and Teeth

I'm headed to the dentist; I hat going to him.

Oh, he's a nice enough guy, but, I'm always afraid of what he might find lurking in my mouth.

But, I'm thankful I HAVE teeth and eyesight.

I am most grateful.

Coming From a Loving Home

Yesterday, I visited two women in our neighborhood.

Each had dramatic stories of family life.

I sat and listened and was so very grateful for the marvelous family I was blessed to be raised in.

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for the blessing of a happy, safe, secure home life.

I am so eternally grateful.

Our Home Didn't Burn!!!

Yesterday, Allen was grilling fish outside and the grill caught on fire.

Thankfully, he was right there AND he was able to put it out.

I am so grateful.

I love having a water and a dryer;

a shower with unending streams of hot water,

A car,

A camera,

A phone,

A computer,




The list is endless.

And, I am grateful.

My Back...

Getting gradually better.

That was a rough month.

Not to be critical, but I don't think anyone really understood how difficult it was.

I'm much more appreciative of people who suffer back issues.

And, I'm grateful for a working back.

From ELI - Breakfast

Man, I'm with Eli on this one.

I'm so thankful for BREAKFAST.

Yes, let's EAT!

From Miles - CATS!

We just watched a video about a drug-sniffing cat, which was an April Fools Joke,

so Miles is thankful for cats..

Well, I guess they do catch mice, which we can be thankful for.
