Good Morning!! It is a dull and dreary looking day here in Southern Georgia!! But I am still very thankful for many many things today!!

We had a great night for the Trick or Treaters!! It was absolutely PERFECT weather!! I had to work till 7 so I just got in on the tail of all the fun. We have several neighbors here that sit outside and greet each child as they come by. This makes it so much fun for all of us!! My grandchildren did not make it over last night but I will include a cute picture of them anyway!!

Today's Thankful list:

  • I have a job that I like for the first time in my life. I think I am going to be getting more hours so I will be able to help some around here.
  • My health is great!! I try not to pay attention to headaches that still plague me!!
  • My home is comfortable and we have everything that we need. God always supplies!
  • My attitude is getting better and better everyday in the area of worrying!
  • I am striving each day to love myself more!
  • Our home is still standing and we do not have any horrible event coming...fire etc. I am so happy to have a home and not be homeless like so many in California.
  • My hubby works hard to make a good living for us.
  • My parents are happy and well
  • Grandchildren are growing up so fast!! Makes my head spin!!
  • Our oldest son has a birthday real soon and it does not seem like 43 years have passed this quickly. He is happy!!
  • I have a nice car to drive with gas in it!!
We need to remember the very small things in life that we are thankful for!! I think a lot of times we just over look them as they are always there...WATER...clean air to breathe...sight...hearing...so many of these things we take for granted.
ARE YOU THANKFUL TODAY?

Indeeeeed I AM thankful today! And EVERYday! FOR THE DAY! For THIS is the day the Lord has made! Let us rejoice and be glad in it! *nods*

Maddie and Garrett both look so cute in their costumes! You know... I LOVE Maddie's hat! YES I do!

Have a GREAT and WONDERFUL day, dear Sandy!


Oh... ya know what? I never have gotten that photo CD. I don't know WHERE it ended up - but not at my house! Don't bother to send another though... at this point I've come to the conclusion that for SOME reason, God does not WANT me to have those pictures! LOL!

You know, Sandy, it's really lovely to read your "Thankful" posts. They are so positive and uplifting.

I have a little book and I try to list five "thankfuls" in it each day. I read about doing that somewhere in a book, and I've been doing it since. It certainly makes a difference.

God bless
