Thankful Thursday

Good Morning to you!  I pray that your week has been blessed and filled with love and joy.  There are so many things to give thanks for each day and it is often so easy to just let our gratitude slide.  So here's my list:
I am thankful that we are back home after an incredible trip.
I am so thankful that hubby gave us this trip; it was such an incredible adventure, once in a lifetime.
I am thankful that I was able to see the land where my grandparents, great grandparents, ....up the line, lived and dwelled.
I am thankful for the protection, though unseen, around us while we traveled.
I am thankful to be able to come home to loved ones and a pup that makes our life so much fun.
I am thankful for the beauty of our area.
I am thankful for grace poured out on me.
I am thankful for life!

Today I again woke up at 3:00 a.m. and was up at 5:30.  I'm hoping that my body rhythm gets back into sinc soon.  I am heading to the garden store today to get some bedding flowers and a few plants.  I could not believe how much all of our plants have grown while we were away-probably the combo of rain and heat.  While I was gone, my daughter texted me that we had blueberry bushes-I thought "what?", but apparently there are also blueberry trees-and if she is correct, we have three in our back yard.  It would be so fun to have the berries, make some jam or just use them in salads etc.
I don't remember them being blue last year, but we were gone for a week in August and it might just have missed my attention. 
So, I keep trying to get around to everyone, but life gets in the way-know I'll get there soon though. I'm off to walk Hunter now.
Consider yourself hugged.
