Once again it is the day we stop and count our blessings, acknowledging that even in this uncertain world we can give thanks. I can say that I am so thankful that our little Reggie is still doing well with no apparent indications of a brain tumor. Now, I realize it may be like this until we are forced to make a decision but for now, I'm so grateful. When our vet gave us the time frame, he said 3-4 weeks and it's been 8 weeks; I guess that is why they call it the Practice of (vet)Medicine. As with people, there is only One who numbers our days and I am blessed by this day. I am thankful that hubby and I went to the movies yesterday; it was raining and a golf outing was cancelled so we took in a show. We saw The Debt; it was good-good acting and pretty intriguing. I am so thankful that our oldest and her family are starting home from their vacation today; I can't wait to see them all! I am thankful that our youngest and I canned another forty pounds of peaches Sunday night and we are now done with peaches and will just wait for apples to appear and then will can alot of applesauce. I am thankful that both our girls have continued on in this skill, thus supplying the needs of their families. I am thankful for two days of rain and the possibility it might rain in Texas. So many dear blogging friends are being impacted by the fires; I well remember what the threat of fire was like when we lived near open space in Ca.
I am thankful for the all day Beth Moore simulcast that I am going to on Sat. with two friends.
I am thankful we are getting the family calf on Sat. and will learn much about animal care with her.
I am thankful it isn't raining because I like to walk when it's a bit nicer.
I am thankful for His love, poured out on us. How about you, what are you thankful for today?
