Hello Grand......I am thankful that you have a nice sister to do things with. My sister and brother have been deceased a very long time now and I miss them and my family a lot. Just me and my husband and cousins and friends in our lives now, along with our dear dogs. I am thankful for that everyday.

I am thankful for Pastor Jimmy. Jimmy's family did not attend church. He was my youngest sons best friend so he often stayed overnight & went to church & Sunday school with us. The years went by. Jimmy joined the military & when he came home he partied a lot. Then he got married & one day he went with his wife to church. In his message yesterday, he told how the Lord got a hold of him & now he is the pastor of a growing church. He mentioned having me as a Sunday School teacher helped him to get where he is now. WOW. Just to have a small part of God's work is so amazing. I am thankful for that. When he mentioned that yesterday, my daughter put her arm around me & I noticed a tear in her eye. Now as I tell Jimmy's story, I have a tear in my eye.

I am thankful for the time I got to spend with my friend Rolland. I was in a bad marriage for 25 years. Rolland & I did things together for almost 20 years. He helped me to see there are a few good men!

Rolland would have turned 78 today.

Thank you GrandmaKarenG for sharing. I too like to read - I picked up lots of used novels at a Rotary Club book sale. I've been doing quite a bit of reading this winter - it relaxes me especially at the end of a day just before bedtime.

I am thankful that the Lord has given me a satisfaction & peace about being "Alone" in this life. There was a time when I craved & really had a strong desire to be in a relationship. Being alone especially on the weekends was really hard for me. I am now happy with the other relationships I have & enjoy my own company. I also know that with Jesus, I am never really alone.

Thankful for the nice quiet week while hubby was up north hunting. (He needed to get away, I think he was getting a little bored being at home all the time in retirement). Glad that I am getting away for a couple of days going to a Toastmaster conference.
