Happy Thursday Friends,  Today Iris at Grace Alone,  is hosting our theme and she has chosen Food.  I think it is a topic that we can all agree to give thanks on, don't you.
I am thankful for the abundance of fresh foods that are available in today's world compared to 50 yrs ago.
I am thankful for the options for organic verses local fruits and veges.  I am thankful for more stores that are offering organic and not charging an arm and a leg for their produce.
I am thankful for fresh fruit and a variety of vegetables.
I am thankful for veges and herbs that grow in our garden and that our daughters grow.
I am thankful for new Gluten Free items that continue to hit the markets, for those of us that can't enjoy regular breads, pasta, grains and cookies.
I am thankful that although my scale has gone up a few pounds, hubby and I have been bike riding and able to ride between 8-14 miles in our little town at least three times a week.
I am thankful that I have the strength and ability to do a variety of exercise so that all the wonderful food doesn't just pack on my waist.
I am thankful for the bread of life and His daily provision for us.
How about you?  What are you thankful for today?
Blessings, Noreen
