Welcome...I'm delighted that you chose to visit! I started this blog in March 2010 and I am so happy that I did. It has made me more aware of the many ways that God is blessing my life. I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

today's gifts

Here are ten things I am grateful for today:

61. answered prayer (our son and DIL sold their house in just two weeks!)
62. sunsets ( I know sunrises are beautiful, too, but I don't see those if I can help it!)
63. time to rest
64. string cheese (just tried this recently...a good low-carb snack)
65. opportunities to celebrate with friends
66. teachers (our new DIL is a teacher and we will have three grands in school this year)
67. the honey lime dressing at Cheddar's ( I love it...wish I knew where I could buy it!)
68. my alarm clock (though I am not usually ready to hear it when it rings, it sure helps me get where I need to go on time! And I really don't like being late!)
69. tomatoes fresh from the vine
70. lovely fresh flowers awaiting me when I got home from work (pictured above!)

I was watching one of the Olympic women's beach volleyball matches last week when one of the commentators told us the height and the weight of the athletes. I can understand why knowing their height would be important....getting up over the net, reach, etc. But, why in the world do we need to know their weight? Another thing I am thankful for...no one is announcing my weight on world wide television!! :-)

"Give thanks to the Lord for He is good..."
Psalm 118:1a


  1. Really they did that?? Me too, I would just die if the whole world knew for sure.
    I love your list. They sold their house in two weeks!! That is wonderful.
    It all sounds really nice.

  2. I am thankful for not having to get up to an alarm this summer - it starts again on Monday!

  3. So many things to be thankful for! I'm smiling at the last one...being thankful that your height and weight is not broadcast live:)

  4. ditto on the weight thing, i always lie about mine!! beautiful flowers!!


Your comment is such a blessing and encouragement to me! Thank you for taking the time to leave one.
