I am thankful to be able to share the abundance of basil from my garden with three people today. I had planned to cut it and pull it all out today and tomorrow, and I really didn’t want to waste any of it, but it is getting too cold for it to keep growing. …
I’m grateful today for roses. I was looking at some medieval rose gardens via Pinterest, and I thought about how roses were a luxury item for so long. Only the wealthy had rose gardens. There were some once a year blooming wild roses, but roses gardens were a thing for those with huge estates. Today,…
Today I am extremely grateful to have met up with an old friend whom I have not seen for over a decade. We were able to visit for quite a while, and I was able to share of our abundance with her from my garden and pantry. What are you grateful for today?
Today, dear readers, I am thankful for all of you. I am thankful for the ways I learn to be more frugal from all of you. I am thankful for the struggles that you share. They are a reminder to me of why I write. I am thankful to know that many of you are…
November 10th: I’m thankful that my children wanted to set up the Christmas tree early! This is earlier than we had planned; we were going to do it in a couple of weeks. While my husband and I were working outside in the garden, they took down the tree and set it up, fluffed it…
I am thankful that we have saved money all year so we have enough to buy Christmas presents for our loved ones.
I am thankful that we are financially able to have a Thanksgiving meal, heat for our home, loved ones with us—and a big ol’ television to watch sports on! 😊🦃
I am thankful that my husband is home for 5 days!
I am thankful for my health and, like you, the strength to complain what needs to be done. I am also thankful for the health of all my family members.
That was supposed to say complete! Not complain. So sorry!
I am thankful that our children have been accepted into the Universities of their choosing, with good financial aid. For what they wish to do for careers, a University education is necessary and I am grateful they can do that with minimal cost to us.
Cold and flu medication. And warm socks. 😛
I am thankful we live by wonderful, caring neighbors. We all look out for one another, and we vary in ages by a few decades.
I’m thankful the grocery store this morning wasn’t crowded and I got all the few last minute items I wanted.
I am thankful for sunshine.
In just the right amounts.
And for moonlight and starlight.
In just the right amounts.
I am thankful that we have plenty of good food to cook for Thanksgiving Dinner, and most of our family will be here to share it.
The holidays always remind me how thankful I am for my double oven!
This morning, I have mixed emotions on my sense of thankfulness. My brother, who lives in Chesapeake, VA and shops at that Walmart texted me to say they were fine. While I’m grateful he and my family are fine, my heart hurts for those families who are not fine this morning. I pray we can find a way to stop these senseless acts of violence!
I’m thankful for worldwide communication and accurate weather forecasts. On another forum, we were discussing how the eruption of a volcano on Tonga caused the year without a summer in 1816 and how truly frightening that would have been. People didn’t know why the sun wasn’t shining, why it was colder, why crops failed, causing starvation, etc. It would still be a problem today but we would know why and could take steps to counteract that.
I am thankful that I have food in my freezer.
I am thankful for family to have over for Thanksgiving. I’m also thankful for friends, in person and online.
I am thankful for three friends who have been with me for decades. They are treasures ❤️
I am thankful for a beautiful day, a wonderful phone call for a loved one, and finding deals on some things we needed to stock up on as well as the few things we needed for our Thanksgiving meal.
I am thankful for legs that walk, arms that hold, eyes that see, ears that hear, and a heart that beats.
I am so thankful for and never take for granted our abundant supply of clean running water in our home.
