Thankful Words

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I hope you have a lovely thanksgiving day full of family or friends.
What will you spend your Thanksgiving doing? Any family traditions?

I will be heading to the demolition zone at the new house until noon, and then off to my sister's for a wonderful Thanksgiving meal!  Our usual tradition demands watching parades in the morning, cooking, snacking on summer sausage, cheese, and crackers. Unfortunately with all the renovations going on I won't be able to watch the parades in the morning... :( 

My husband's family always plays football on Thanksgiving day! This is where I usually put my high heel spike boots and cream furry hat and coat in order to get out of playing! Sorry, but football is not my really my thing!  
Guess which one is me...!

The day after Thanksgiving we usually go shopping and put up the Christmas tree! I have a feeling that will be happening a little later this year! To much going painting, gutting, and mudding going on!!

I hope your Thanksgiving day is full of reasons to give thanks! I will leave you with these words of wisdom!

  "When we lose one blessing, another is often most unexpectedly given in its place."

C.S. Lewis  


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence."

Og Mandino 


"And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts... And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."

Colossians 3:15-17 



  1. Liz, you have such an awesome family! What a blessing!

    You need to put up pictures of your NEW house ASAP!!!


  2. I wouldn't be playing football either! I love your furry hat and pink blanket!
