Today I am so very Thankful that there are people in my life who are understanding and accepting even when it is hard. I have friends and some family who are there for me even when it makes no sense and even when it is hard to understand. I can only hope that I can be that kind of friend myself. Acceptance is a beautiful thing!

Today I am so very Thankful for my little blue laptop! It is my outlet to friends, family and so much more. It is through it that I learn more than I ever imagined and it has allowed me to teach myself to do things I thought I would never be able to do. I also shop, travel and read books and articles I would never have access to.
It is small but mighty and it holds within in it my memory and my brain. I do Love my Little Blue Machine.

Today I am so very Thankful for my Hubby! Now there are some days I would like to smack him, but most days he is pretty awesome. We have been together for 30 years and married for 28. He is a great Dad and my best friend and he puts up with the pups and loves them too. He is kind and he even cooks and buys groceries. Jackpot!!!

Today I am so very Thankful for Cooking! When I was growing up, the best times in our family surrounded preparing and eating good food. Now it is a small thing that I can still do for my family. When I was working I didn't do much cooking but now I love to try new recipes and sometimes they even turn out pretty good. :-) Cooking good food and enjoying it with friends and family is such a wonderful part of life!

Today I am so very Thankful for the eight years my Dad served in the Army as well as all of the others who have and continue to serve in the Military. I love this graphic because Daddy drew a comic strip for the army newspaper where he was stationed. I have his scrapbooks and some of the newspapers and I just love to look through them and see the close friendships he made during that time so far away from home.

My family is very busy and scattered around town here locally. But on Sunday's we all try to come together and have a meal. Everybody can't make it every week but they come when they can and even if they can't stay and eat they try to visit. All week I think of things I would like to make and trying new recipes. We have a couple of very close friends of the boys who join us as well. It is a wonderful time to reconnect and get lots of hugs. Sunday Dinners are the best kind of Joy!!

Each and every day I am so very Thankful for a place to call Home!! For years I worked long hours and was away from home from dusk to dawn. Now I am so very thankful that I can enjoy being at home and that we have a place for the Boys to come home to!

Today I am so very Thankful for the wild birds that visit our backyard. A few days ago I spotted one like this and found out that he was an Eastern Blue Bird. He was just beautiful and so fat and fluffy. He only stayed for a few minutes but it was just enough to bring joy to my day.
