A B C's of Thanks

Finding Joy | The ABC's of Thanks



 Many thanks to Rachel at Finding Joy for hosting the ABC's of Thanks.

A - apples, they add such brilliance to a bowl of fruit
B - blogging, it has connected me with some of the most awesome folks on planet earth
C - cameras, one is strapped to me at all times, never know when a moment is going to be a "  photo moment"   and one must stay ready
D - Dad, mine, one of the greatest for sure 
E -energy to go and do everyday
F - family, where would I be without them, love, love them
G - green grass that colors our yard and makes everything seem so alive
H - heaven, knowing it is my eternal home gives me comfort
I -  ink for my computer printer. I use my printer all the time and so enjoy being creative on the computer and being able to produce it in living color
J - Jesus, God's son, born that I might have life eternal
K- Kindle, it's just the greatest little tech gadget, making reading so much fun and there's no stacks of books laying around when you have one of them
L - lemons, their bright happy yellow color makes me smile
M - my Mom, so thankful for her precious memory
N - nuts, I cannot imagine making a lot of recipes without them
O - Oklahoma, where our first Grandchild was born
P - prayer, the key to life for a christian
Q - quiet, just nothing like it at times
R - rest, just nothing like it either at times
S - smiles, they cost nothing and can make someone's day when we share one with them
T - Tommy, we shared almost 40 years of marriage and while we've had our  " ups and downs"   (hasn't everyone) we can not imagine life without one another
U- umbrella, a dandy item on a rainy day in Louisiana
V - victory in Jesus, nothing greater
W - water, nothing quenches the thirst like water
X - xtra special people in my life
Y - young ones that add that extra joy and happiness to our lives
Z -zippers that help to keep our clothes on


Blessings abundant to each of you as you celebrate Thanksgiving. Thanks so much for stopping by, I love sharing in the richness of your lives.

  4. Lea, you are a blessing to me. Your kind comments and encouraging words to me mean so much. Thank you for taking the time to bless me in that way.

    I enjoyed your list greatly. You reminded me of so many things that I've forgotten to be thankful for -- including ink for my printer!

    I hope you had a restful and wonderful Thanksgiving.

    God bless you, my friend!
