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

my daughter's mantle

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

 91.  a warm, dry house on a cold, wet night
 92.  people who do what they say they will do
 93.  freedom to get in my car and go where I choose
 94.  children who are easily pleased
 95.  children who value time more than money
 96.  freshly painted walls
 97.  getting back into clothes I had outgrown :-)
 98.  a week off for Thanksgiving
 99.  God's protection (I came very close to being hit by someone who ran a red light last week!)
100.  mercies that are new every morning!

"Every good and perfect gift is from above
 and comes down from the Father of lights,
with whom there is no variation
 or shadow of turning. "
James 1:17

Something else to be thankful for!
