Thankfulness

My friend Terri offered a challenge to her Facebook friends.  Here in the US, we celebrate Thanksgiving Day on  the fourth Thursday in the month of November.  This year,  it will be on the 26th. Terri suggested each day until Thanksgiving,  we write something for which we are thankful.

I love Terri’s suggestion, and thought I would try to write a blog post each day,  naming something for which I am thankful.  We are all so blessed in more ways than we can even imagine, and I thought it might be fun to add a photo as well! 

Today,  I am thankful for each day I am given.  This daywas an exceptionally beautiful day, even with quite a chill in the air!  When I took the Scotties out this morning, we were greeted by a world shrouded in a heavy frost.  In looking up into the sky,  the stars were magical!  Each was so pronounced and  just almost took my breath away!

This evening, as the sun set over the hills to the west,  the pastel watercolors splashed against the canvas were nothing less than incredible!

Thank you, Lord, for this day and each day we are given!

Psalm 118:26   This is the day that the Lord has made; we shall rejoice and be glad in it.

Just a *Touch* of Color

One day last week,  I had to stop at Walgreen’s Pharmacy in Canandaigua.  I hurried into the store and made my purchase and on my way out to the Explorer,  I saw what didn’t seem possible.  There, in the midst of dead brush and bramble was a cluster of beautiful purple color!

Our flowers like these have been gone now for weeks.  I’m not sure what kept this awesome plant from succumbing to the ravages of a frost,  but it certainly was pretty!
