Hello dear friends-I'm wishing you abundant blessings this weekend. We are expecting snow tonight and today is dreary and cold. Just the perfect kind of day to stay inside; you know those types of days when you just wear a warm up suit or something cozy and warm and don't do much on anything. I've been fighting a stuffy nose, something that has been hanging around in our family so don't want to spread any new germs around. I'm hoping to pin the baby quilt today so I can start hand quilting it, for before you know it the little lass will arrive and this nana wants it finished by her birth.
I am so thankful for this day, this life. Even when I don't feel quite up to par, I am thankful it is something that will pass before too long. I am thankful to be blessed with an incredible family and two faithful dogs. I am thankful that our oldest dog's eye is looking better today after I applied medicine to it and put a halo collar on him. Four years ago he had to have eye surgery and the thought of going through it again wasn't pleasant. I am thankful that in Sonoma County we had a Eye Specialist for Dogs and that the original procedure was relatively easy and not as expensive as having a vet do it. I am thankful that we still had some of the ointment that I could apply. I am thankful for this little old dog, his loyal spirit and the fact that my sis loved him so much. I am thankful for memories of her that floated through my mind yesterday-oh how I miss her. I am thankful that I know with complete assurance that I will see her in glory.
I am thankful that our Father never gives us more than we can handle; even if we seem to think He does-He never leaves us or forsakes us. I am thankful that He is my hiding place, that I find shelter under His pinions. I am thankful that His love is perfect and holy and that it is always unconditional. I am thankful that I am a work in progress-far from finished.
Enjoy His blessings today and this weekend.
