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

These are some of the things I am thankful for today:

71. the smell of new lumber (being used to frame our addition)
72. unexpected blessings 
73. random encounters with old friends
74. a quality Christian radio station to listen to
75. grands who are always happy to see me (oh my, how that makes my heart sing!)
76. folks who take the time to comment here (each one makes me smile!)
77. short days at work (the Doc is on vacation, so this is an easy week)
78. always having food in my fridge, pantry and freezer (I've never really been hungry)
79. the cooler days of fall
80. the color in the trees that comes along with that coolness

I hope your heart is grateful today. Here is a quote from
One Simple Act by Debbie Macomber:

"When we practice gratitude, not only do we grow in our trust of God, but we benefit physically, mentally and spiritually.
 As we acknowledge all we have, as we learn to praise God for all he has done for us, God helps us pry our hands
 off our possessions.
Gratitude is the basis for giving.
 In order to be able to open our hands to give,
 we first have to give thanks for all we've been given."
