What I'm Loving Wednesday


 
I'm linking up with "What I'm Loving Wednesday" with Jamie over at This Kind of Love.

Here's what I'm loving..........

I'm loving the gift of friendship.  Fifteen years ago this group of gals formed what we called "the birthday group."  We go on 3 outings a year and celebrate each other's birthdays.  One of those such days was day before yesterday.  We go on day trips to see sites, shop and enjoy a good meal.  A few years back we decided that a good name for us would be "The Formidible Women."  ~giggle ~ It's a special time when we can all be together and forget the cares of the world and just enjoy being together.  


I'm loving that our local Garden Club (that I'm a member of) is having a huge garage sale this Saturday. It gave me a wonderful opportunity to go through my house and get rid of stuff!  How are earth do we accumulate so much?  I just don't get it, but at this stage of my life, I'm all about lessening my load of stuff.

 I'm loving that my Hubby has enjoyed 55+ years of hunting.  I don't get the whole hunting deal, I mean you have to get up early, get very cold and stay very quiet.  There's nothing about any of that that appeals to me. ~laugh~  But, something about it has sure brought a lot of enjoyment into my husbands life for a very long time.  And, he tells me that there's just nothing like being "up close and personal" with nature.

 

I'm loving  that this month causes me to pause and reflect, in a special way, all the things I have to be thankful for.  And, I'm always reminded that the things I'm most grateful for is not things, but relationships..........with my Lord and Savior, my precious family and my friends.

  9. I glad you have your friends and you were motivated to find things for the sale. I understand that the deer will die over Winter so there is a purpose to hunting but I can't look at the poor babies :(
