HEALTH.....GOOD HEALTH that is my biggest #1 blessing of today!! Yesterday I just seemed to turn the "healthy corner". I don't know where that corner exactly is located but I somehow FOUND it!! Boy was I glad!! I was getting so sick of being sick. I want to thank everyone out there who kept coming to my blog even though I did not feel like blogging. You keep leaving me encouraging words and even sent me emails and e-cards!! Wow!! I am so blessed!! Thank you so much!! Do you know that no one here came in to help me!! Only you in blogland were the only ones. I am not saying this to complain just telling YOU to pat you all on the back!! See how important you are to me!!

I am so thankful for my husband's great job. He seems to really LOVE it too. His health seems to be doing well. Unless of course, he is just not complaining!! Hm... who knows about men!! He is such a sweet man, but ya'll already know about that.

I am so blessed to live in a great home in the best country that God could have put me in...the United States of America. I know that we have a lot of problems but I love my country. I love my little house here that needs so much work but it is our home and we love it!!

This weekend we get to go to Myrtle Beach. We have never been. I have always wanted to go. We are going camping with our kids for a couple of days. That means that I have to get the motorhome up and going but I am not going to do much this time. It is so HOT here as I am sure it is in your part of the country too!! I am just thankful that I get to go someplace that I have never been before. What a fun thing!!

My two youngest grands will be here soon for a bit while their daddy does a job. We are going to be making potato salad and a couple of frozen yogurt pies to take this weekend. I bet Garrett is going to want to walk to the park. You see he thinks the "whole world" revolves around him.!! Well, when he gets to grandma's he finds out that it doesn't!! Hmmm!! I hope I am around on the day he finally figures it out that it REALLY DOES NOT!!! ((smile))

I am so thankful for family!!!!

I absolutely LOVE your page! I love Flip Flops... As a matter of fact I am a part of a group called the Flip Flop Club..... I know it might sound silly but it's just a group of ten girls, all very good friends...

Great TT list!

Sounds like you guys have some FUN in store this weekend! I've actually BEEN to Myrtle Beach! Only once - and just for the afternoon... we didn't stay over.

I'm just takin' a break to eat dinner... thought I'd make a few visits... then it's back to the grind! Have fun with the kiddos tonight!

Hi Sandy

I'm so glad you're feeling better. A lingering health problem can really get one down, can't it.

Enjoy your time at Myrtle Beach and also having the grandies around.

You are right - good health is very important. I know that I take it for granted most days. Thank you for the reminder.
I think we all have a heart for our home country -- not matter what. I do have the same feeling for my home-country, Germany. Although I don't live there right now, it is still where my heart is...
I am so glad that you will have time with family this weekend.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week.

Be blessed today and always.

Happy to hear that you are feeling better! And you are full of baloney . . . the whole world does revolve around the grandkids! You know it does. Just admit it! :-)
