THANKFUL FOR.....


And there's more snow today!

Snow, lots of it – thankful mainly because it isn’t 
rain or hurricanes or earthquakes, 
and it will nourish the earth when it melts – 
not too fast I hope!

A relaxed , fun evening with son and daughter-in-law

Grandchildren’s giggles and chasing around the room

Delicious food – someone else doing the cooking

Good conversation about topics dear to one’s heart

Encouraging e-mails from friends

Knowing someone is praying for your needs

Opportunities to serve the seniors Sunday afternoons at church

That I can drive myself to work and don’t have to park my car, 
take the train downtown, walk another block to the office!

Reading a good book by an excellent author

A hot cup of Stinging Nettle tea – yum!


Enjoy every precious moment of life
the Lord gifts to you!

I love the bird's eye view of what you're seeing. Now I can see through your eyes what you see from your window! I don't know about the Stinging Nettle, though, yikes! We are to get a frozen rain storm tonight, and I'm hoping the power doesn't go out.

I always enjoy your thankful list, Karin... We all do have so much to be thankful for--in so many ways... When I read your list, I always think of mine, many of which are the same was yours.

Hugs,
Betsy
