Outdoor Wednesday


Susan, A Southern Daydreamer, is hosting the last Outdoor Wednesday before the special Thanksgiving day. Enjoy your day with her and your family.



Even nature knew it was time for Thanksgiving colors as these trees reflect.


Even the pretty orange butterfly came to share this occasions with us.

On the eve of Thanksgiving, have you ever tried to list from A-to-Z all the things you are thankful for? It is not as easy as you might think. This week at my great grandson's school, the teacher ask them to list seven things they were thankful for. He is five, and this was his list:
1. Mama
2. Daddy
3. God
4. MEME (that's me)
5. Bible
6. Swing
7. Lightsaber

This really, really touched my old heart when he put me in fourth place on his list. We need material things to survive, but there is nothing like the love of a child. I am very blessed and so thankful. May your Thanksgiving day be sunny and bright, and filled with many wonderful blessings.

Isn't that sweet, LV??? Having your grandchild put you on his or her list of things they are thankful for has to be the best Thanksgiving gift a grandmother could ever want...

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are going hiking for a few days---after eating all of that turkey on Thurs. We'll definitely need the exercise. ha.....

Hugs,
Betsy
