Happy Thanksgiving


I am thankful for:

the gift of another day,

for food to eat,

hot and cold running water,

clothing to wear,

a comfortable bed,



Thankful for

my four feline girls,

for Plum Cottage and gardens.


Thankful for

43 years of marriage to my best friend,

for the love we shared,

for the memories that fill my heart,

thankful knowing that he is now with God.

For love, encouragment and comfort from God and others,

through these almost 5 years without my dear DH, my ‘love’.


Thankful for,

the love of family,

for the love of friends, real and online.

Thankful most of all,

for the Love of God.


Happy Thanksgiving to all of you,

I am thankful for you, Rainey! I love your list, too. Almost five years; hard to believe. I think of you and your DH every day. Thank you for reminding me of the huge blessings I enjoy but often overlook. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Love, Karen

Happy Thanksgiving to YOU, Lorraine!
I, too, have much for which to thank our Lord Jesus.
Among the many, many things, I appreciate the long-distance acquaintances I've made. It brings me much joy/pleasure to share with dear ones like you from time to time. The world seems smaller to me because of the gift of technology.

Amen! God is good. And He joins us together in His Spirit and at His throne. I meet you there often in prayer and that's something I'm thankful for. You are all set up by your thankfulness for receiving more and more grace. <3

I read you blog earlier but I got distracted and did not get a reply made. I really love the old Teddy bears. I had one of these and my mother through it away when I was not looking. Having been a widower I know that there are so much to be thankful for even though we are the survivors. Those to whom we lost really do want us to have a wonderful life on earth and we can be thankful for memories. I like reading all that you are thankful for, cats and all.
