Even though I am struggling with GERD I am so thankful that overall I have great health. Together my husband and I workout 4 to 5 nights a week and try to eat healthy. More so now with acid reflux.
A young lady of 42 came in my office this week and told me she was diagnosed with breast cancer. There is no family history so it wasn’t anything she had really ever considered. Please keep this lady in your prayers.
Getting our oldest daughter back in our lives has been so wonderful! Not only did we get her but we’ve come to realize what a nice man she has. Then there are the two wonderful boys. Yes some day soon I will be able to say I am a “grandma”! I am thankful for these new relationships that have come to us! I enjoy them so much!
It’s been a long time since I have been posting regularly here. I miss it very much and I feel guilty for being away so long. Then I start to convince myself that I don’t have anything positive to say so I stay away longer than I should. It was just a decision I made to jump back in and I am so glad I did. I want to start posting about my journey with gastroesophageal reflux disease. Jump starting my workout schedule/plan is also something I would like to share. I’m so thankful to be back among friends yet again. I feel like l say (do) this every few months. Thank you for sticking with me!
It never fails! Things going along wonderfully when suddenly the washing machine goes out! This is happening every 2 -3 years! They just don’t make them like they used to. I had a Maytag that lasted 15 years. When that one wore out I bought another; from there it was all down hill. Every 2-3 years. We repair them several times before we decide we have spent enough on it. I am thankful today for the “backup” washing machine that is hooked up in the garage for washing farm clothes. This old Roper was purchased at an appliance repair shop several years ago. Again, they don’t make them like they used to.
I probably do not say it enough… how thankful I am for my husband. This past year has been a growing time for us. Even though we have been married for almost 30 years it’s amazing what an empty nest can do. We enjoy each others company, we do things together, we talk, and I know I can always count on him.
We are in a wonderful season of our lives and we are living each day to the fullest!
Signs of Spring: trees budding out, grass greening up, Robins migrating back, daffodils blooming, and the ground warm under my feet.
A beautiful time of year when things become New!
Sometimes I struggle to come up with things to be thankful for even though I know there is so much that I am thankful for. Did that make sense? It might be easier today if I just list a few things…
As I sit here in the dimly lit livingroom I think back to the time when our table was full. It seems like only yesterday but then it seems like ages ago at the same time. I miss those days and then I am happy that the “work” of raising the family is done. How strange it feels to have conflicting emotions.
I say this to say that I am thankful for the memories that I have. There were many great times and there were many hard times but I will cling to all those memories as time goes by and we continue to make new memories.
I just can’t say enough how thankful I am to have my daughter back in my life! I’m so proud of her and her accomplishments, her little family, and her wisdom. She’s grown into a beautiful young lady. Thank you Lord for this beautiful soul.
A small list today to remind me that there us plenty to be thankful for even though I sometimes take things for granted.
Plenty to eat
Hope you have a blessed day!
For my family! After two years of our oldest not speaking to us we have finally got it all worked out. We spent two hours at her home discussing our issues. Her boyfriend was very nice and composed. In the end he made the statement that we have a relationship to work on. This momma is so happy to hear him talk like that! Thank you to all my friends for keeping this situation in your prayers.
Because I am a lover of summer I am thankful that I don’t live any farther north than I do. I cannot believe the temperatures this week! I feel (pray) for the homeless, animals, and folks that have to work outside.
I’m thankful too that I leave for Mexico Monday morning… and of course temperatures will be back in the 60’s.
It’s been a long time since I posted a Thankful Thursday post. When there is so much to be thankful for I could actually post it every day!
This week I am si thankful that we have a wood burning furnace. The weather has been so cold and wet that our electricity bill would be out of control or I would be frozen to the couch!
It was wisdom that my hubby used when we built our home nearly 20 years ago. Now we should more wisdom when it comes to having enough wood for the season. We have been out cutting down dead trees as we need it this year.
Over the years I always posted daily a list of things I am thankful for throughout the month of November. It’s not that I’m not thankful anymore but I am most thankful right now for each day and the people in those days.
Making my way back into blog land is not going to be stressful and take away the spontaneity of every day life.
Hope you all are having a great week!
My final post of 30 days of giving thanks! This month helped me reflect on all that I have. I may not have have everything the way I want it right now but in God’s time. Thank you for sticking with me this month!
November 29 – Books
November 30 – Sunsets!
November 27 – Healthy Choice meals. It’s hard to actually cook healthy when you come home exhausted from work.
November 28 – His Grace, because without it I would be forever lost!
Scene: It’s a bright sunny morning. My downstairs family room is bright and where I am sitting in the sunlight it is nice and cozy. Very crisp outside this morning.
Today’s Plan: my main goal today is to get our bags completely packed and ready for our Mexico trip. We leave very early Wednesday morning. Other than that I need to plan ahead meals for grandma and make sure “daycare” hasn’t forgot that this is the week I need them.
Drinking: Coffee with Pumpkin spice creamer
Listening to: nothing, enjoying my nice quiet morning.
The Witching Hour by Anne Rice
