Thankful Thursday!

Happy Thankful Thursday everyone!!! 

Fall is on it's way! The leaves are falling and the sun is setting sooner!  I have pumpkins planted and can't wait.  I love this time of year. 

I am so thankful that we don't stay in one season.  I love Spring. The flowers, the transition from long sleeves and pants to short sleeves and shorts!  I love Summer.  The warm weather, swimming, gardening, bar-b-q dinners!  But I really love Fall!  The colorful leaves and the autumn plants!!! Thanksgiving and Christmas are on the way!!!  So much to look forward to....except Winter!  I am not a fan of winter!!!  I don't like cold! 

I will put up with it though, because I know it will pass and all the other great seasons will come again!

I am also thankful for my friend Brandi.  She has got me off my but and walking down her long driveway almost every day!  She is such a friend to put up with my mumbling and complaining.  All in the name of loosing weight and becoming better friends.  (I am a lazy lady, and she puts up with it all!)

I am thankful for my little boy!  God blessed me so much the day he was born.  Now he is 4 years old and absolutely perfect!  God also blessed me with my Hubby, who made all the happiness I now enjoy possible!  I don't even want to start imagining my life without him right now!

So, share a few of the things you are thankful for with us over at Grace Alone with Iris and the rest of us!


  1. I'm hoping and praying I'll be able to see "fall" in my life, living in a tropical country makes me wish we have those seasons too..and yes..even winter :)

  2. A most wonderful post. I LOVE the intensity of the fall colors..such richness. And you go girl in your walking. I hear you on the being lazy part...but we can do it. So good that you have a partner to help you keep going. Hope your day is grand!

  3. I also LOVE fall and am so very thankful for its return!
    Have a blessed TT!

  4. I love your blog design!! I too love fall!!!! :) Wow, time flies! My son is 2 1/2,I guess he will be 4 before I know it!

  5. Having a partner makes daily exercise so much easier. Mine is a dog, but on days when I don't feel like going and he gives me that forlorn look... well, it gets me off my butt, too!! I love the crispness of the fall air and the vibrant colours too, so it's not really a chore right now, but ask me again when it's -35 and windy...

  6. I am glad for the different seasons too! It is nice that it doesn't stay the same all the time, it changes!

  7. Love your honesty. I love Fall too, it is my favorite season, and I am so excited that it is on it's way, but knowing that as I do, I also know that winter is right behind it. Like you, I AM NOT a fan of winter has to go, unless I am in the tropics. :)

    Friendships is something to be thankful for, that is what I wrote about today. My bff.

    Hope your having a great week.

  8. I love the changing seasons! Now that I live in Texas I look forward to winters without snow! I too like change!

    Happy TT!

  9. I can just picture the two of you out walking on a crisp, Fall day. I love autumn... the leaves changing color, pumpkins on the vine, and trees laden with apples. Enjoy!
