It is so nice of you to come Through My Back Door tonight and for that I am grateful. I was sitting here having coffee and thinking of all the things I am grateful for, then here you are. I am so grateful to each of you who visit. I am grateful for Kona coffee and for the beautiful red ware mugs, made by Rick Hamelin.
I am also grateful for this blog fairy who visits and surprises me. She is just the best.
Nothing makes me happier than sitting in my reading nook, reading a book or blogs.
I am also grateful for this beautiful old quilt given to me by a friend years ago. I am grateful for this early Tn spinning wheel that was a gift from Curtis. I wonder how many women actually used it. It came from an old horse farm.
Far too many to post pictures of, too much to name. Sometimes I think we get so busy, doing, going, and living, that we forget to be grateful. I know we are all grateful for the love of God, our family and our friends, but don't you think we need to take time just to be grateful? That is what I have done tonight and I feel much better for it. We can't think of being grateful without remembering our loved ones who have helped shape us. Many of us no longer have our parents and grandparents who have helped make us who we are. However we can be grateful for having had them in our lives. I don't know about you but I see my paternal grandparents in my cousins. My grandfather had a wonderful sense of humor and it seems all 10 of us have the same sense of humor. I am grateful for that because my sense of humor has gotten me through some tough times.
I am so grateful for this fellow, who is my constant companion.
I am grateful you came Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: I simply cannot end this grateful post without a picture of this girl. I am grateful for the prayers said for her and our family.Prayers still being said.
PSS: Thank you Lynne, AKA blog fairy. Lynne has helped me so much, but wants no credit for it. I am grateful for her.She is responsible for my new header. Did you notice the coffee stain on the diary?
PSSS: Remember the Clinton Festival is this coming weekend. Streets will be filled with vendors, food, and entertainment. Corner Antiques always has a wonderful selection and a huge sale. The Hen will have so many beautiful things. Johnny has made a wonderful buttery plus lots of other things. Come see for yourself if you can.
