Much to Be Thankful For

I feel sure that many of us are stopping to count our blessings this week. It truly should be something we do always, but it certainly comes front and center with the Thanksgiving holiday. I thank God for my comfortable life and that I have such a wonderful, supportive and closeknit family. That isn't something that should be taken for granted as I know there are some who can't say that. I thank God that my mother is doing so very well after giving us a big scare in the spring. She is now back to traveling and shopping at the mall and going out to lunch with her friends on a regular basis. She was being fed with a feeding tube for two months!
I am also thankful for YOU, my new blogging buddies. You bring me much joy each day by allowing me to see your beautiful homes, your projects and so much more.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Hi Donna, your table is BEAUTIFUL!! Love the gold beads around the candle, I do the same thing with peppermints in my kitchen. I'll show you soon. Kevin,(hubby) does not know how to make the pictures enlarge,(he's in computers too, hmmmm....) Can you tell me how to do that? I just drag my photos into blog photos and then upload them. I don't know much about it, maybe you can help. Thanks, Kristen
