~ I Give Thanks With
                           A Grateful Heart~

            For...... sweet husband, who doesn't
blink an eye when I suggest a
day trip to take in an arts and crafts fair.

  .....or a vacation at a cabin in the
beautiful Georgia mountains. precious daughter and son-in-law,
who are so much fun to vacation with.
They love the outdoors
and are always ready to explore.

.....good health and the best friends
 and co-workers....ever.....
who joined us in support,
walking the 5k Race for the Cure the rain! near
This picture was taken on Easter a couple
of years ago. My sweet mother-in-law
has since gone to be with the Lord, but
we shared many happy family times together
over the years. There is a new baby boy
to add to the family photo this year. far

The fourth generation
extended family in Mississippi.
This was taken last Thanksgiving
and this year, there will be another
little boy added to this picture as well!

.......our cozy little log cabin by
the Cypress Knee swamp, that has
provided shelter and comfort and
a place to call home.
(Oops, I forgot to hang the ferns back up!)

.......the beauty of the State I call home.

.......and for so much more......
my heart is grateful and
humbled to be so blessed.

Happy Thanksgiving Holiday!

~ TGIF ~

It has been a multicolored
kind of week.
Mixed thoughts and emotions.
For me, there is nothing like
a dose of nature to restore balance.
God is still in His heaven! 
Have a beautiful weekend.

~ Color My World ~
What I see when I turn into my driveway.
We finally had weather cool enough
for the trees to begin to color....
Closer to the house the color is
more golden.....
Like my "See Rock City"birdhouse?
I saw that advertisement on
barns all over northern Arkansas growing up.

How beautifully leaves grow old. 
How full of light and color are their last days.

I do love this time of the year!
(except, I wish I could keep Daylight Savings Time)

Til next time,
