A Time for Thanks

Hope you all are Having a wonderful week.Hectic here as usual.We have to drive a hour and half away from home tomorrow for court.My husband is a witness we tried to get out of it but no such luck.I can't believe it's a day before Thanksgiving.It's in the city too, which I don't like going to and am worried about were I can park my jeep.Hubby says better make sure to hide my GPS.LoL...Anyway the guy was already found guilty but he appealed so now they are pinning more charges on him.If I was them I would have paid the fines and cost in local court because now he could face a felony charge through the DA. He's not to smart....Then turkey day.My hubby's family is coming and I might go see everyone at grandma's later in the eve...Hubby will make a full blown dinner,I'll make some dessert..So wanted to stop in and wish you all a

Happy Thanksgiving while I had a few minutes..So many things I'm thankful for this year but I think it's the simple things that mean the most to me this year.I find myself not caring about the gifts under the tree or everything being perfect(yes I like things a certain way)..It's been a rough year and I'm finding more joy and appreciating small things that used to go unnoticed and appreciated...

Like having a minute to enjoy a magazine with a warm cup a tea a rare occasion lately..Time waiting on the Drs to call dad back as we get time to talk while waiting and I appreciate that I have the few minutes to just sit and talk with nothing else to do.Every minute counts with the unknown time we have since we found out about the cancer.I'm Thankful he's talking about the future and hoping to go back to work in January...I'm thankful for my family and that I still have my grandma and the old farmhouse to gather with everyone on sundays...I'm thankful for home..Thankful for friendships near and all of you who have been there for the good and the bad.Blogging brings you close to people who are so similiar to you and so many of you are like family...Soooo many things to be thankful for..

So as you sit down to your feast remember how blessed you are to have loved ones near,good food to eat and a warm house.Count your blessing and remember that there are so many people without right now...My wish for you on this Thanksgiving is Love and Warmth and may you always be blessed!

Happy Thanksgiving! Warmest Blessings!~Amy

It sounds like you have a lot to be thankful for. What I wouldn't give for one more Thanksgiving with my grandparents on their farm. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Great post Amy (all except for the drive for court tomorrow - hoping you get a call early in the morning saying it's off....) Yes, there's much to be thankful for - and I'm thinking more of us who are turning inward, and appreciating the small blessings and joys all the more. Wishing you a wonderful holiday....Smiles & Thanksgiving Hugs ~ Robin

Friendship isn't a big thing.
It's a million little things.
I am so glad to be friends with you.
Enjoy every little thing because they may someday be the big things you remember.

awh Amy,
your sweet words made me tear up!! I hope the same thing for you sweet friend. I am so thankful that God allowed our paths to cross and for me to find your blog. Thank you so much for taking a chance on a newbie for the great pumpkin swap. I so enjoyed getting to know you and now when I walk by the areas of my home where your gifts are displayed I think about you and remember to say a prayer for you and your sweet father. I hope you have the best Thanksgiving ever!

Have a blessed Thanksgiving sweetie. You are so right - it's the simple things I cherish the most, and if everything isn't 'perfect'.... at least it's an 'adventure' with my family! Have a wonderful day!

Hey there Amy,
I hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! You are right, sometimes you learn that the things you thought were so important really aren't. It's alright to put them on the back burner! I have had to tell myself this too. We go through different seasons' and this is a different season, it's alright, you take care of you and your family!
God bless you!
Renee ( thanks for always being so kind)
