Be Thankful

(copied, author unknown)
Life Is a Gift
Today Before you say an unkind word - Think of someone who can't Speak.
Before You complain about the taste of your food - Think of someone Who has nothing to eat.
Before You complain about your husband or wife - Think of someone who's crying out to GOD for a companion.
Today Before you complain about life - Think of someone who went Too early to heaven.
Before Whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who Walks the same distance with their feet.
And when You are tired and complain about your job - Think of the Unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your Job.
And when Depressing thoughts seem to get you down - Put a smile on Your face and think: you're alive and still Around

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There is so much to be Thankful for!! I pray that your blessings are numerous on this day of Thanksgiving. May everyone feel the grace of God at their supper table, and may it be surrounded by those you love.

Happy Thanksgiving!


(I will be taking a long weekend to decorate the cabin in Mentone. I will be dropping in on all of you on Sunday to catch up. Come back on Monday for a recap on Who won the turkey toss, food galore, recap of Thanksgiving in the country and decorting the cabin using all natural elements. In the meantime, one last thing....ROLL TIDE ROLL!)

Hi, Leigh! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving at that cabin! I'll have to come back & see those pics, sounds heavenly. Oh and NO, I didn't buy anything at the antique stores. I have no more room!! Of course, I can move things around & get rid of if I have to have something.

I'm yelling it too: ROLL TIDE!!!!
