Well I have so many friends to thank this Christmas. I am so grateful for so many things. You know when times get bad and they do - I rely on God and my friends. While I don't share some of my troubles - there are some. And I am just so thankful for my life and my friends here.
Now some things I am thankful and grateful for:
I won all these sweets from Tricia at Saving Desserts. IT IS/WAS DELICIOUS.
Fudge and Minnie is over dosed.
The box - backwards - lol.
My dear angel friend gave me an angel instead! Thank you Jean. We have been friends since 1978!
And the home made knitted cap you made the GS - doesn't it look like his hair?
He loves it.
And Lisa at Two Bears Farm - I won her fabulous gift. (My GS liked it too)
Christmas cookie cutters.
Ribbons and ornaments.
Even Pierce made these and sent them to me! They smell so good.
And Ann from The Boston Lady.
The green jar is from her son's wedding!
A look into Chatty's bedroom.
And this from Jill from Chillin with Jill and I need to send it to seven others and I will.
My friend Debbie for GS's pj's and candy. They are in the wash or I'd take a picture of them. Friends from 1990 - you have gone thru so much too!
My friend Richard for my angel. We became friends when the kids went to preschool - he is a Mr. Mom.
Becky Povich Andrea Bocelli and David Foster My Christmas - we write back and forth all the time about this guy - do you all love his voice as much as we do?
Angela one of my longest follower/friend sends me all the great deals.
Susan sang Happy Birthday to my grandson!
Marydon for helping GS with his school project and candle.
Sharon thank you for helping GS too. My friend from church and she sends me many forwards.
Thanks to Jerry and Ann for helping me by sending me funnies. Sharon my friend at church and many others and forgive me for not naming everyone. Actually there are a lot of friends who send me things I use. Thank you.
The many Christmas cards and I was naughty - I didn't send any this year.
Meeting Sue, Joyce, Cheri, and Linda - bloggers in Atlanta who I've become friends with. We do lunch - well Sue cooks and we eat, cookie exchanges, visiting the Governor's Mansion, tea parties, and much more. I have gotten to meet a lot of other GA bloggers too. I must say we are a fun bunch.
Linda has gotten me so many things, I've them spread all over the house! We have met for lunch many times. She's been a special friend to me.
I think of all the gals who have scared their story with me and ones I've shared my story back with. Nikki and all the others.
And Betty my dear Betty I forgot for her friendship and ornament.
And how could I forget Eva - my good friend from Ireland. She sent me the prettiest Christmas card that she took from one of her awesome paintings. But I did - forgive me.
My thought for the day in pictures. From Sandra at Madsnapper -- thank you!
Now to end with humor - Is this person smart or what?
I hope and pray two things - I hope you don't think I'm bragging - I'm not - I'm really thankful for all of this.
And if I've forgotten anyone I'm sorry. Everyone is really wonderful!!!
And the best gift of all I received - last but not least -
ALL YOUR FRIENDSHIP'S - you all have been blessings in my life. I thank God for you.
Okay I reread this and feel like I've won an academy award and I'm taking too long thanking everyone! I'm sorry!
