Chapter 3, Page 11, Book 10



There has been so much in my life that I’ve been thankful for lately that this list might be a little long today

I was so thankful to be able to gather with family this past weekend. Saturday we spent the day at DS#6’s house. I got to hold his son, my 13th grandchild and also to celebrate March birthdays. DDIL#6 and I blew out our birthday cake candles together. I received some very nice gifts, one of which was a box of crafts and a book about doing them too from DS#1’sfamily. I also received a lovely card from DS#2 who even though he’s traveling for work right now took time out to wish me a happy birthday.

On Sunday I was treated to dinner by DS#5 and his wife and DD and her hubby. After that I spent a couple of pleasurable hours visiting with my 2 sisters. Oh and I got more gifts too!

On Monday morning I received a call from our Princess and Prince Charming wishing me a happy birthday and I got phone calls from DS#6 and DS#5 in the evening and my neighbor came by with a beautiful plant and a bag full of books.

On Tuesday I received roses from DS#4 and his family and a gift certificate that I’ll use to buy some books from DS#3 and family.

Wednesday brought some much warmer weather and even though there was a shower, most of the day was dry and the sunshine even popped out awhile. For the first time in ages I switch from my wool socks to lighter weight cotton ones and my feet were warm!

That is really something to be thankful for !

The snow is really melting here and I’m thankful for that for sure.

So today I’m a very thankful lady, I hope your Thursday is a THANKFUL one too!

‘On Ya’-ma

What a wonderful list of thankfuls . Don't you just that we can be thankful for all things. It does my heart good to read blogs that do these. The snow is melting here like crazy, actually too fast because they are now predicting flooding again along the Red River. Hopefully it will slow down some. Hugs

so neat Pam that your birthday celebration and gifts were spread out over a few days, made it last longer! And what wonderful gifts you got (but of course you are wonderful so no surprise you would be "spoiled" on your special day!) neat with the socks! I know what you mean; I lived in wool socks a lot in Montana :)

and look what tomorrow is! Friday!!
