COUNTING MY BLESSINGS












Lynn at The Vintage Nest is having a Give Thanks Party. The things for which I am thankful have not changed since last year, so I am re-posting last year's post. Of course, anything for which I am thankful is also a favorite thing, so this is my Favorite Things Saturday post as well, and I'm linking to Friday Favorites at The Whistlestop Cafe. I will also be linking this post to The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays and to Happy to Design for Sunday Favorites.























I apologize that this post is kind of a mess. I've been posting from Live Writer for so long, I've almost forgotten how to use Blogger. Since I was copying an old post, I had to use Blogger.

Information about sending cards to Heather and Robert is located above the prayer list on my sidebar. Thanks.

Don't forget to go check the links at The Vintage Nest, The Whistlestop Cafe, The Tablescaper, and Happy to Design, and the Favorite Things links below. There are a lot of fun parties in Blogville. Thank you to our gracious hostesses. I will be taking a little blog break. I'll be back for Favorite Things Saturday next Friday. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. laurie

Hello dear friend...

Thank you, Laurie...your Thanksgiving post is so wonderfully sweet! You know, I count my blessings daily, however I am so glad that we have a season of thanksgiving...in particular...a special day set apart...just to recognize our many blessings! Happy Thanksgiving, dear sweet friend! I too, count you as one of my blessings! Friendship is such a sweet thing...for where would we be without our friends? I am also very thankful that I know the Lord and that I belong to HIM! He is such a loving, gracious, and merciful Saviour!!! I don't know where I would be without HIM as well! I acknowledge that ALL blessings come from HIM!!! Thank you, Lord!!!

Well my friend, thank you for joining in with the Sunday Favorites party this week...I'm just tickled pink to have you! And...thank you so much for hosting another week of Favorite Things Saturday! I really appreciate your time and effort in making an opportunity for all of us to share a few of our favorite things each week!

Love ya, Laurie!

Bill said...

Wonderful reasons for thankfulness, Laurie! And we're thankful for YOU!

I enjoyed your post about cloche collecting -- would you believe I still don't have a single one (unless you count cake and cheese domes)? I see them from time to time, but I've yet to find a bargain on one. :-(

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving (and that you're not doing all the cooking for 30 people!).

Warmest regards,
Bill

Laurie,
I hope you're having a wonderful Thanksgiving! This year is one we have so very much to be thankful for.
I slept in Heather's room last night and she looked beautiful this morning. Her cheeks were pink and rosy like before her illness took hold. The doctor's are pleased with her progress and she can come home once she is switched to oral pain meds.
Robert and his family are wonderful people and we have been blessed. His surgeon told me he felt Robert was someone visiting from heaven here on earth! He is certain Heather's and our angel.
Hugs, Cathy
