My husband and I walked outside right before leaving to a photography session to check to see if we were dressed warmly enough. While we stood outside, it started to snow! It snowed for about 30 seconds, tiny balls of snow that at first looked like hail. It then turned to slush and rain.
I went back inside for umbrellas and my camera–and it didn’t rain for the entire session! I am thankful that it stayed dry, even though everyone was cold! I still was able to get some great shots of the visiting families.
What are you thankful for today?
I am thankful for chocolate, and for other wonderful tastes and smells that aren’t necessary, but are important.
I am thankful that we were able to enjoy some family time with our son home from college.
I am thankful it isn’t snowing (current temp on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. is 66 degrees)!
My serious item (not that no snow isn’t) is that my daughter has gotten a job where she is eligible for medical and other benefits starting on December 1. She has remained on my benefits because she is young enough but I am retiring in late January and going on Medicare so insurance is going to be here responsibility now. The timing is pretty darn near perfect.
I am thankful that I was able to go out and enjoy some local free holiday festivities.
I am thankful for my children and my husband. I know too many people mourning the loss of a spouse and/or children. I am so grateful that all my children are here on earth with me and that my husband is raising them with me. They make my life richer and my days full. I am grateful and blessed.
I am thankful for my cell phone. It allows me to easily get in touch with friends and family. It makes me feel safer when traveling and it certainly helps me get where I want to go.
I am thankful that on Nov. 29, 1978, I first glimpsed the baby boy who would become my son. He was asleep under mosquito netting in a foster home in Ibague, Colombia. November is a big month for our family–my husband and I met Nov. 19, 1967; we adopted our daughter Nov. 2, 1976 (at 7 weeks of age) and our son (4 months old) on Nov. 29, 1978.
I am thankful for a beautiful snow fall over the last few days and wonderful projects to work on at home so I didn’t need to go out and drive in it.
I am thankful that a friend treated me to juice while she had coffee and that she gave me a lift to pick up my medicines. I was thankful for a lovely visit with her. I didn’t remember that it was Black Friday week and the traffic was fierce and the stores packed but I found a table right away. I am thankful that she picked up pesticide free apples for me at the farmers’ market and that the car smelled like apples on our way home. I don’t see this friend except once or twice a year in person although we email each other. While at Indigo (a Canadian bookstore with coffee area) we met a lady from the UK who has her own blog or IG so my friend traded IG handles with her. Small world! In fact I met my friend because of her Instagram.
I am thankful that we have enough food. So much in fact that I battle weight gain!
I’m thankful my daughter got to have a baby. He is the light of her life and brings her joy every day. It touches my heart to see the love she has for this child.
I am thankful for my family and friends. The holiday season makes me more aware of those around me who have lost loved ones and my heart goes out to them.
I am thankful for the approaching Christmas season and what it means to me as a Christian.
