    1. That is a great three. Salvation would be my first one, too...without it, nothing else really matters!

  3. A mistake post
    At your coast?
    Saw two
    Shame on you lol

    Thankful you say?
    Been there done that our way
    But I can play
    At least today

    Hmmm what could it be?
    The ability to pee?
    A roof over my head?
    Not being the undead?

    Be awful to be shot in the head.
    Or maybe just not being dead.
    Hmm look where this led?
    I guess thankful for a bed

    Does blog buddies count?
    A rather high amount.
    Maybe a working arm?
    At least one didn't buy the farm.

    Who buys the farm anyway?
    Save that for another day?
    Farms are too much work
    They are not a perk

    Is my thankful through?
    Sorry, not up to you
    I can keep going and going
    Than dumb bunny better not start showing

    Thankful for a shower
    That has nice power
    Thankful for a litterbox
    Maybe not having holy socks

    A holy sock, who knew?
    I think I am through
    Nope, not yet
    Such a mouthy pet

    Can't stop me
    Whoops got to go pee
    Now I am through
    Have a good day at your zoo

    1. Gee, what a rant
      as my request you did grant!
      No mistake was made
      but the direction of comments that was laid
      was more than I could take
      so my head I did shake
      and poof I deleted the whole thing
      as irritation it did bring. lol....

    2. I tuned in just before my tea
      And saw a broad describe a recipe
      I wondered where on earth she'd vanished
      And why from your post she was banished.
      I did not have time to hear all she said
      And I saw no comments ~ so nine were read.
      Gosh Pat is on form tonight
      He really tries to give you a fright . . . . lol

      Delete
    3. Well, let's not make this post about that one, too!
      If I wanted that, I would have left it in view!

      Delete
    4. Why not a two for one?
      Then done and done
      A shaking head is fine by me
      That just proves I'm still crazy

      But yes being thankful is better than most food
      Food gives my body attitude
      So thankful it is
      With the thankful biz

      Thankful is used a lot
      Thankful can't be taught
      Or can it be thankfully?
      Sure beats little old thankful me

      Delete
    5. thankful that it's just one arm and not two...
      now that is a positive attitude! haha.

    My wonderful partner, our lovely house, and our amazing luck at being able to spend so much time in beautiful Switzerland.

  7. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Betsy!
    I really like the sign too- must remember.

    Okay- three specific blessings today: my kids invited over to a friend's house for the day (they're out of school and driving me crazy), unexpected Ebay items to ship out and a good night's sleep that lead to waking up with a purring fur-ball on me :)

    All the best to you and yours!! :)

  14. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your 5 men. I'm thankful to be alive, to be single, and have somewhere to lay my head.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. My late father-in-law always said 'thank you for material blessings' when he prayed. I'll never forget that. Somewhere to live and lay your head most certainly is something to be thankful for. ....a basic need that some do not have. (got your note...thanks for sharing that).

  15. Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for my salvation, close friends, and making it through brain surgery in September. After 40 years of seizures, I am now seizure free! I also enjoy photography and think you definitely have a great eye for pictures!

    Replies
    1. Oh, I love this....first of all, I'm so glad to hear you are seizure free and made it through such a successful surgery! You just have to be thrilled with that! How wonderful! And I'm also glad to hear you enjoy photography and have come here for a look! Please comment again...I'd love to hear from you...and maybe your name? :)

      Delete
    2. I am thrilled as it is a huge relief and I can now live my life without daily fear. It's definitely not a surgery I would recommend :) but it's been the right answer for me. I have actually set my photography aside for the last couple of years, but you have inspired me to pick it back up again. I never thought I missed it that much until I saw many of your pictures. Thank you!

      I'm sorry I omitted my name the first time. It's Marla.

      Delete
    3. Hi Marla!
      I can imagine that surgery was not fun but now you can say it was worth it! Yes, pick up your camera again! Maybe you'll feel like starting a blog so we can enjoy your photos! :)

  16. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving in your beautiful new kitchen and dining room. I'm so thankful to have my mom and her caregiver living with us as she enters the final days or weeks of her life, for my husband and children, and for over 30 years in a profession that I love.

    1. Aw, Laurie...I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. How gracious of you to have her move in with you. I hope the next few weeks are full of blessings for your entire family. Big hugs. Great hubby, kids and job....love all of those thankfuls!

    2. Thank you Betsy for your kind thoughts regarding my mother. She passed away very peacefully a couple of hours after our Thanksgiving dinner. Most of the family was here and I was with her as she took her last breaths. So very thankful that she is finally free and with my dad.

      Laurie

    3. What a great way to look at her passing....finally free from illness and with your dad. Still, I know it hurts and I'll be thinking of you and your family during the next couple of busy days. Thanks for letting me know. Hugs....

  22. Coffee, cinnamon rolls, and the wood stove; that's what I'm thankful for.
    If you want something a little deeper, I'm grateful for a Creator who cares, His son wh died in my place, and the knowledge that I need Him.
