Gifts for Thanks

I'm always thankful for Rhondi, who reminds us to be thankful. She does a special post about this every Thursday. So today I'm thankful for these gifts:

1. The Gardener recovering, finally, from a painful dose of shingles.
2. A warm house in this very cold weather.
3. Feeling a little better after a flu bug.
4. My friend Susanna recovering so well from her knee replacement
5. My friend Lydia Grace who so graciously went and helped with my mom so I could stay home today.
6. Two unexpected "sick days at home" --- one to sleep, and today, maybe, I'll feel like reading.
7. A pot of hot soup.

And our pausing to give thanks, is a gift in itself to our heavenly Father, isn't it?


  1. Sorry you've been sick but glad you're feeling better. Stay warm! BRRRR!

  2. This is my first time to visit your blog and I must say it has been such a lovely visit. Those curtains in your previous post are adorable. Glad to hear you are feeling better as is the Gardener. Sending warm wishes your way, Tammy

  3. So glad he's over the shingles. I've had that and it's awful. Hope you're feeling better soon, too.

  4. I'm glad the gardener is on the mend and hope you feel back to normal soon too. Thanks for joining in today!
    Hugs, Rhondi

  5. Hope you are better.
    What gorgeous shopping bags.
    That photo is more about beauty than shopping!

  6. Hope you both feel well soon!


  7. I am thankful for your blog friendship. Feel better!

  8. Oh, sweet thing...a bout of flu on top of the Gardener being sick. I'm so sorry.

    Sending you a hug and hoping this weekend is restful for the two of you. :)


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
