~ Still Thankful ~


I hope all of you had a most enjoyable Thanksgiving and continue to savor it with each delectable leftover!!  We finished the last of the pumpkin pie last night and will enjoy a wonderful Turkey Soup tonight, and that will be it for us!!  It truly has been wonderful...the first, second, AND third time around!!  How thankful I am for all the many ways we can enjoy turkey.....in soups, chowders, casseroles, sandwiches, and stews, and that it still tastes good, no matter HOW you prepare it!!!  Truly, Thanksgiving offers so much for us to be thankful for!!

Speaking of being thankful, I wanted to express my thanks to all of you who follow my blog and stop by my Picture Trail!  You have been such a source of encouragement to me and my heart is so blessed by your lives!  When I started blogging I never imagined I would still be doing it 4 years later!!!  I started slow and was so unsure if I would even stay with it, but it has been a true joy and blessing to me!!  If you are reading this and are thinking about starting a blog, but are afraid or unsure, let me just say that if I can do it, YOU CAN TOO!!!  You have no idea how much You Will Be Blessed and at the same time Will Bless Someone Else, just by taking that first keystroke!!  You will be so happy you did and so will someone else!!!

Many of you have signed up for my email updates and I thank you for that!  Just be sure that you follow all the steps so that you are verified.  If you would like me to add you for Picture Trail updates, just sign my guest book and ask to be added.

~HAPPY THANKSGIVING~



Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
~Melody Beattie

Wishing all of you a most wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with an over-abundance of Blessings!!!

With a Heart of Gratitude~~
