Wishing everyone a beautiful first day of fall – here in Texas and I know many other states it doesn’t feel like fall with todays temperature forecasted to be 93 degrees with lots of humidity (yuck). But I do know that crisp air, pumpkin this and that, apple cider and FALL FASHION (boots and sweaters!) are a short time in waiting! Just like many of our dreams we are waiting to come to fruition, stay focused on moving forward and experiencing your good harvest that you will soon reap!
Happy Anniversary my sweet home! 13 years ago today, I signed the papers and was given the key to you – my first new home! And so to my home I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for: keeping me cool in the summer (your welcome for the new HVAC) and keeping me warm in the winter, dry when it rains or snows! For giving me a lovely place where I have experienced life and all its wonderful twists and turns, more joy than sorrow for 13 years and soon you will be paid off!! LOL Oh how time flies when you are having fun! In 2017 I have big plans for you home sweet home… update your look inside and out. But for today, just know how grateful and blessed I feel to have you…a home of my own!

Lord, so often times, as any other day
When we sit down to our meal and pray
We hurry along and make fast the blessing
Thanks, amen. Now please pass the dressing
We’re slaves to the olfactory overload
We must rush our prayer before the food gets cold
But Lord, I’d like to take a few minute more
To really give thanks to what I’m thankful for
For my family, my health, a nice soft bed
My friends, my freedom, a roof over my head
I’m thankful right now to be surrounded by those
Whose lives touch me more than they’ll ever possibly know
Thankful Lord, that You’ve blessed me beyond measure
Thankful that in my heart lives life’s greatest treasure
That You, dear Jesus, reside in that place
And I’m ever so grateful for Your unending grace
So please, heavenly Father, bless this food You’ve provided
And bless each and every person invited

Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
