Today I am thankful for...Updated @ 7:15 p.m.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends and family.  Wherever you may be may the Lord bless you and keep you.  

I am thankful for...

...for a loving husband of almost 35 years
...for healthy children and grandchildren
...for a dry, warm place to lay my head
...for a job right now
...for good friends & family who love and care about us
...for my cyberspace friends who are too many to count
...for a loving aunt, who loves me like a mom should
...for food to eat
...for the love of my Lord Jesus Christ
...emotional healing and the medications that keep my depression at bay

And then we had our Thanksgiving meal...

...thank you Connie & Marian for the duck; it turned out well.
...for all the greetings from friends and family today; made the day less lonesome.
...for the best team player ~ Ron...he is on dish duty tonight...THANK YOU!
...for the heat of the oven to make this little motor home so toasty that we had to take off our sweaters and fleeces.
 ...for friends and family to share our pictures with...

Ron relaxing.  See the snow outside, got about 3" more in the night and early morning.
Alice hard at work on dinner...this is the view from the bedroom into the kitchen/living room.
Rolls, butter and wine.  In this little place we use every available space to put stuff.

Getting ready to fix our plates.  Remember we use every available space :)
And the finished duck.  Hope it tastes as good as it smells and looks.
Our bountiful table. 
And the remnants of a delicious dinner.
 ...and dinner was wonderful.  Thank you Lord for providing for us in so many different ways. 

As I was putting the captions on the pictures I thought about our little home. And more reasons for us to be thankful for.  It is fully equipped.  It has a living room, kitchen, dining room, bathroom and bedroom plus a closet and lots of cupboards.  Which are all full of clothes to keep us warm, food in our pantry and storage cupboard.  We have fun things to do ~ like read books, listen to music on our little CD player and of course our two computers.  Our home can also be used as a get-a-way car if necessary.  Not everyone can say that!  We are truly blessed!
