Thanksgiving Thankfuls

Good afternoon and come in for a cup of Pumpkin Spice coffee. This is Door County coffee, my favorite, Pumpkin Spice, and it is so good. You see I have my favorites of coffee. I love Kona and DD regular, but I love Door County Pumpkin Spice. I also love their White Christmas. As you can tell, coffee is important to Grab a red ware mug,(it is that time of year.Redware and fill it. I know you will enjoy it. My friend Sharon,(The Speckled Hen, owner) brought this to me and I sure am enjoying it. I will cut you a piece of peach cake too, if you like. I love it. Don't know why I was thinking peach today, instead of pumpkin. Yes, I do, my domino group comes tomorrow and one of the girls don't like pumpkin. Anyway I  am so happy, as usual, to see you. Yes, I am decorated for Christmas, but won't show pictures today. I want to talk about Thanksgiving Thankfuls. What are we thankful for? Of course I can't list everything, or we would be here for weeks. I just want to share a few things I am really Thankful for. First of all, that God lives in my house. That I am forgiven and cared for. I am thankful for my church. I love my church and all of my friends there. I am thankful for my family, as we all are. I am thankful for friends who have loved and cared about me forever. I am thankful my family included me on so many vacations this past summer.
