Good morning and come in for a cup of DD coffee.It is so fallish here this morning, you won't believe it. It is 52! I am having my coffee inside.lol Have you ever just stopped and thought about what a wonderful life we live? I have been trying hard to dwell on that the last bit as there has been a lot of sadness around too. I think of all of my blessings and I thought I am not waiting until Thanksgiving to share them. SO this morning I am sharing what a wonderful life I have. Now don't think I don't have the downsides like everyone else. I do. I have, and I will continue to have them. That is the reality of life, The difference is I am concentrating on my blessings. I am starting a Bible Study at church, with a young lady leading it. I have missed the first 2 weeks, but asked her about the assignments for next week when I go. She had asked us to make a list of our blessings and our challenges. I told her my blessings would make a list from here to China! My challenges might too but we won't talk about them.lol Anyway I am getting ready for a girl weekend soon. It is always fun to go with these three friends. We have been doing this about 6 years and have so much fun. Last year one was sick and couldn't go. Here we are at our favorite place, The Inn at Christmas Time.
Friends are a big part of my wonderful life. Without them I would be lonely.(Now is that profound)duh--I have so many different groups of friends and I enjoy them all. They each contribute so much to my life. They help to make it a wonderful life. In November I will be going back to PF with these 2 and 4 others. We have so much fun, eating, shopping, watching football, eating, lol, you get the idea. Some days we don't take our PJ's off. It is just catch up, vent, solve problems, just general girl stuff. We have been doing this 25 years. So, I love fall and the "annuals" it brings me. Of course there is a week at the beach in there too.
Yesterday was the Pioneer Days show at the Museum of Appalachia. I worked at the Hen so Sharon could go. I enjoy it so much because there are people from all over. My friend Donna and her husband from Ga were in and I am always happy to see them. She and I got acquainted because she read my blog and I feel they are life long friends when I see them. I also got to meet a facebook friend, CindyPickett Humphrey too. We belong to some FB decorating groups and got to know one another, It was so nice to meet her and her husband. I wanted them to stay longer so we could visit.lol Anyway yesterday was such a good day at the Hen. Thank you Sharon for contributing to my wonderful life.
Last night I played rook with another group of friends and I laughed so hard, my sides hurt. It was just a good way to end a good day.
This is a vine my friend Angela gave me. It attracts hummingbirds.
Renda bought me some new sheets. I just enjoy them so much as they are silk.
Of course my family is at the top of my blessing list, but you all know that. I have to take a moment and wish Seth a Happy birthday today. He is my favorite Grandson, named Seth.
Well I am so happy you came Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: My friend Audrey over at Tombstone Tidings , sent me some beautiful wool to put by my big wheel. I will get a picute next post. She, in my opinion, leads a most interesting life. Please go visit her.
PSS: Please continue to remember Erin. She is going through chemo and radiation right now and many more weeks to go. God is in the miracle business. We know it.
PSSS: It is with sadness I have to tell you my buddy, Joshs' father passed away yesterday. He was much too young and leaves another son, Timothy, and his sweet wife Lisa. Lisa has been friends with my kids since middle school and all our hearts are broken. Please remember them in your prayers.
