A Few More Thanksgiving Thankfuls

Hi everyone, and come right in. Of course the coffee is on,plain old DD today, but there are Christmas Oreos! I love those things. I hope you aren't put off by my Christmas decorations before Thanksgiving, but you know I have them up.I just have to have the lights on and the Christmas music playing. I just have too! It is so good to have you come by again. You know I love drop in company. Since it will get busy next week I wanted to add a few more Thankfuls. Life is full of uncertainties and things are going to happen we don't like, but we can always find things to be thankful for. I love life. I love living the best life I can because it is a gift from God. One not to be taken lightly, nor for granted, so here are a few more of my Thankfuls.
I am thankful for a home, and thankful I can fly my flag.
I am thankful for the memories this old dinner bell reflects, plus I am thankful for a busy son, who will take his time to put it up for me. You know a gift of your time is something you can never get back.
I am thankful for a bed to sleep in every night. For clean sheets and a warm house. Not everyone has those luxuries.Yes they are luxuries. Ask any homeless person who hasn't slept in a bed in a long time, they will confirm it. Ask a soldier who has been on along deployment. We are blessed.
For food on my table and family and friends to share it with.
For a car to drive and gas to run it. Thankful for a grandson in law, who will wash and wax it for me. Bring it home and say,"This is a 200.00 detail job. Free!" lol  Love him.

Friends to ride with me. Friendship and laughter are something to be thankful for.
These are the everyday things we take for granted. Things that are so important to our everyday lives.
 I am thankful for so many friends my card group and domino group.
I am thankful for doctors, for chemo, for researchers, who are working tirelessly for cures for illnesses.
I am thankful for all of my friends and families. It has been a hard year for a lot of you. Some of you have lost loved ones, others have experienced miracles in your lives. I am thankful for the privilege of praying for you and your families. I am thankful that so many of you have prayed for me and my family. So as Thanksgiving draws near, I wanted to share my Thanksgiving Thankfulness. Also, for many of us, people we love won't be sharing Thanksgiving dinner with us. I am going to be Thankful for the Thanksgivings we have had, rather than dwell on the sadness of their not being here this year.
One of my Thanksgiving Thankfuls, is YOU coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
Happy Thanksgiving to each of you
