Happy Thursday to you!  I have a list of thanks a mile long each day but just want to focus on a few items today.  
Yesterday I drove down the road apiece, about 45 minutes to meet my two blogging buddies for lunch.  I have known Marlene, on the left, and Pam,on the right, for about 3 yrs now.  These ladies are incredible women of faith, nanas, moms and bloggers; plus they are just fun to spend time with.  We try to get together every three to four months as schedules allow and I cherish the time we spend together.  Marlene is an accomplished writer and I always love hearing if she has any new stories in the works.I got to meet two of Marlene's grands and also her daughter-what a wonderful family.   Pam does childcare for her grands and that touches my heart; having done childcare in my home for years makes me reflect on that time when I hear her stories.  I am so thankful that the Lord brought us together, via blogs, to share fellowship.  There are a couple of other ladies down the road that I haven't met but would like to. 
We had a wonderful lunch in an old home that was built in the 1890's and converted to a very nice restaurant. I should have taken a photo of my salad because it was so good! 
Today I'm off to bible study, which I am thankful for, and later we head up to the mountains to have dinner with friends.  I just hope it isn't snowing this afternoon and evening while we are traveling. 
I hope you have a wonderful day filled with the Love of Jesus; don't forget to stop and give thanks for the blessings in your life.
Hugs, Noreen
