Giving Thanks

I have always loved Thanksgiving. I have so many fond memories of it in my past. Many times we would go to a friend's home since we did not live near relatives.

 The kids and I made two leaf garlands and on the back wrote what we were thankful for this year.

I love the fall season and it's warm colors. Decorating for it makes me happy!

This year was quiet since a lot of our family was away or had to work. We still had a delicious dinner and had many things to give praise for this year.

Psalm 30:4

 Sing unto the Lord, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

Park Day

We love to head down to a nearby park and soak up some rays and enjoy the beauty all around us.

Of course, going to the park does not create the excitement that it once did for all the kids. The swings and slide have been replaced by a game of basketball for the older guys.

There are still those who love the swings and slides! Yeah!

 Sammy is ready to take on all the park smells.

Grateful for health and strength to celebrate all God's simple gifts.
