Greetings to you this Thursday. I hope you have all had a week filled with gratitude and joy, even in those tough moments. I'm a bit slow this morning because yesterday hubby and I went on a long, I mean long, bike ride. How long you ask? Well we rode almost 21 miles and because we had ridden this trial before it seemed longer than the first time we rode it. Of course, we rode a an extra two plus miles; it was a beautiful day, the weather was almost perfect until the end when it started to sprinkle on us. The last time we rode this particular trial, we came home and collapsed due to the heat but yesterday wasn't so bad. I'm just hoping that these legs of mine are trimming up a bit.
Today as I reflected on my life, I am so thankful to be able to physically go on bike rides, walks etc. There are so many people fighting for their health and their very life, that I'm grateful to be able to be active.
I am so thankful that our daughters live in close proximity to us. I am thankful to be able to share the joys of watching their kiddos grow up and to help whenever we are needed. I am thankful for abundant fruit to can and the fun in canning with our girls. I am thankful they have chosen to live here. I am thankful that they are blessed to be stay at home moms and that they saw the value of homeschooling.
I am thankful for all the many sacrifices my dear man has made, over the years, to provide for us and the sacrifices he continues to make for me.
I am thankful for another week of grace with our Reggie.
I am thankful for some new blogging friends I've gotten to know this week.
Blessings on you this day, Noreen
