A Week of Thanksgiving ~

we are truly thankful for God's gifts, mercy & grace
not our mantel but isn't this easy to copy & says it all
again, pinterest with oodles of beautiful tablescapes
this came from my board titled 'thanksgiving'
this sweet pup caught my eye on my way to my board
the photo didn't lead to a breeder of aussies but i'd love one
may you have a blessed week
filled with love, laughter, and reasons to feel blessed
in my darkest days, i've always found at least a handful
to say, 'thank you, father'
we all have that many and more ~

oh, in love with autumn

oh. i am so in love with autumn
and i love to waltz thru pinterest and dream
like today, like now
with this adorable house
it would be mine
#13 would be the home of a sweet older lady
who would keep delicious smells wafting in and through
our shared porches and patios
yummy simple meals

i live next door, behind the green door
and i bake desserts to go with our meals together
but today is a great day to wander
i wonder how long it has been since a train traveled these tracks
what did the passenger cars look like
were there more people going home or visiting family
oh, what beauty they had from their windows
when i was younger, my family traveled on the hummingbird
from central florida to montgomery alabama
it's a heart memory i hold close
walking home, d i notice i need to clean up the table
site of our impromptu meal last night at dusk
much loved linens on the table and mismatched pieces
we toasted to cooler weather
the beauty of our God's painting
and to each other's continued good health
my sassy greeted me at the door with kisses
lots of kisses and snuggles
sweet pup, we have a mutual admiration and love
 they imprint forever on our hearts
just ask anyone that's loved and lost
it hurts forever
we'll cuddle up in my cloud, get cozy, maybe
revisit the beauty of today and its' blessings
drift off in mounds of softness
and mushy pillows
until tomorrow's light peeps in

do you dream
i always have
i believe that dreams of tomorrow
become the realities of today
so hold on to dreams
they do come true
have a blessed week, a thanksgiving time of
remembering your blessings
heart memories
and feel free to use these two free printables.

How Do They Thank Them?

And a post from 2013 ~
How do we thank them? Are there words enough to express our heartfelt gratitude? There are ways to show them. Never walk by one without acknowledging them. Never. They exist. And because they do, we still do. Buy them a meal without letting them know. Just leave a 'thank you' at the register. Teach your babies they are to be appreciated and respected. Join with your congregation with the shoebox and Christmas boxes being sent to the deployed. Sign up with The Wounded Warriors or another group that actually helps those returning and needing help with physical, emotional and/or mental issues. PTSD is real. And that's not the most serious they suffer from or with. They have this household's prayers each day, several times a day. I'm proud of those that fought for our freedom from the British, the War of 1812, the Spanish War, the Civil War Between the States, in WWI and WWII with Germany and Nazi Germany. My father in the Korean Conflict against North Korea. Three nephews that proudly served in the Air Force, the Marines and one currently serving in the Navy. I'm very proud of them and pray for them so often and for their family as they await to hear a voice on the phone.

It's November! And I'm In Love ~

oh, how i love autumn
and oh, how i await november
i'm in love!
with the colors of nature
the cooler temps
crisp mornings
hot chocolate & biscuits with jam
i love november {swoon font}
you can find all of these on my pinterest board
titled appropriately, thanksgiving, of course
and the link to my pinterest page is on the right bar
follow me! i have lots of boards with oodles of things
that grab my heart, make me hungry, prick my wanderlust
send me in search of a good book or movie
and lots and lots of ideas for the seasons,
and the holidays, and birthdays, and parties.
well, go check it out. follow the boards you like!
i have several weaknesses but one of them
is collecting dinnerware.
especially dessert and salad plates to compliment
the solid plates i've had over the years
i just never seem to have enough
enough room, that is, to store them!
and in downsizing i lost wonderful storage
so one has to get creative {wink font}
you never know where you'll find treasures
for the seasons and holidays around this house!
but i do {smiling font}
i'll be back with tablescapes and yummy recipes
vignettes that are easy but gorgeous
wreaths that, well, i find buying them and embellishing
them is easier than beginning from scratch!
so y'all come back. in fact, go over to the right side
and follow me! it so easy and you won't miss a post!
blessings for an awesome week ~
