This is the weekend that our town has a huge garage sale, scattered throughout the neighborhoods; a weekend when folks can empty out their closets and garages and share their old things with others. So today, bright and early, hubby and I will be going to many such garage sales in search of a patio table with chairs or possibly some sort of garden decoration. Mainly hubby goes for me but just maybe he'll find some golf clubs, golf balls or an antique camera. Our little town paper advertises each home that will participate so that folks can get an idea of whether they should go to this or that home.
Since I didn't post a Thankful list yesterday, I wanted to take the time today to mention just a few of the things I'm so grateful for.
I am thankful that twice this week I was able to go on two walks in the morning and on the other days just one...but the more I walk the better I'm feeling and the looser my clothes are getting.
I am thankful for those families that toil the earth and yesterday was reminded of their sacrifice when I read Ann's post at Holy Experience. These farmers work incredibly long hours and often don't hear a lot of gratitude from others. There are many here in my state who raise the fruit I so often take for granted, so to all of you I say Thank You for providing us with nourishing food for our tables.
O.k. here's a new one in the bird saga-this week I decided not to purchase the "no-mess" food because of the cost and I can tell you right now that I am glad for the blackbirds scavenging the ground below the feeders because the cheaper seeds make a huge mess...which is not as pleasing to the eye. Now I have to figure out, until our current seed is gone, how to put a screen under the feeder to gather all the seeds that are being dropped on the ground. I am thankful that I didn't purchase more than two large bags of seed, like our neighbor does. I am thankful that I am still able to go bend down and collect the dropped seed before it sprouts.
I am so thankful for the blessings of the Father, and for the love of family and friends-this means you!!!
Happy a wonderful weekend!
