    Tina S. That would be wonderful to live within walking distance to so many things. I love where I live, in a very quiet country town but I am two miles off the main highway on a dirt road. It’s 14 miles to town (grocery store, library, etc.) I do have a beautiful view though and even cattle grazing up here in the spring.

  14. Whoops, I missed this post! For November 12th & 13th, I am thankful for my deep pantry, which is currently feeding not only our family, but also my brother and DD’s friend. I am also thankful for our how hard we’ve worked on improving our finances, so I can continue with replenishing our pantry as needed and whenever sales present themselves, without feeling any anxiety about our budget.

  15. I am thankful that my beautiful daughter turned the corner from darkness into light. She has had clinical depression for over 25 years and is very difficult to medicate. The one drug that worked seems to have pooped out (that’s the clinical term, LOL) about 4 months ago. She had not worked nor lived with her other family (she is developmentally disabled) for 6 weeks. Until Nov. 14, 2018. Yesterday, when I was gone for about 1-1/2 hours, she decided to take a shower (which we’d been arguing about), get dressed and get ready to go to her other family. When I got home, she apologized completely on her own and I took her to the other place. This morning, she happily went to work, and is back here for the weekend. She hung up all her clothes this afternoon. She told me tonight that she was glad to be in from the dark (how she describes depression).

    Praise the Lord! Years ago, realizing I could do nothing for her, I had to give her over to God, and He has been faithful. There have been hard times, but they always end. There is no other word for this than what it is: a MIRACLE.

  16. I am thankful my youngest son Reese has been able to return home to visit this week. We haven’t seen him for six months. I am also grateful that my pantry is full so I can send him back with a truck bed full of food.
