Happy Thanksgiving!

Carlinville, IL

Today is a very special day.  We are spending Thanksgiving with our family.  We haven’t done this for several years.
Remember today is not only about spending time with family, eating too much wonderful food, but it’s also about being thankful for all your blessings.

Can you think of some things that you are thankful for?  Here are some thing that I am thankful for …

free to worship and proclaim my faith and love for the Pilot of my life .. Jesus Christ

for my wonderful husband .. God blessed me and to be honest he gave me a wonderful man that i am not deserving of most of the time.

for my family and friends

for my health .. even though i still have health issues .. i am so thankful for the miracle i have received .. after  years of being bed ridden i am able to get out of bed, sit up, walk, travel and enjoy life once again. 

for my wonderful home

for all the little things in life that i have

I have learned to accept each day as it comes, if it’s a good day .. wonderful, if it’s a bad day then i know that i can get through it and a good day is around the corner .. I have a plaque on my wall and i read it daily .. it says ..

God grant me the Serenity to accept the things i cannot change,
Courage to change the things i can
and the Wisdom to know the difference.

I could have slept in this morning but i was awake by 7.30 AM .. hmm i think my grand kids have gotten Grandma on a schedule getting up early .. hmm

Around 10 AM we were on our way to hubby’s mom to spend Thanksgiving with family.  (Can you believe i took my camera but forgot to get pictures)  :((

We had Turkey and all the traditional things that go with it.  My mother in law did a great job .. thanks mom.  We spent the afternoon enjoying the kids and each other.  Finally it was time to say good bye and then we stopped and picked up the Grandkids bags as they came home with us to spend the night at Papa and Grandma’s.

We spent the evening enjoying being grandparents.  I close tonight blog by
