Abundantly blessed!

My house looks like disaster central right now

because:



there is stuff everywhere!!

totes, boxes, gift wrap, tape, dishes, food, pans,

clothes, {unmade bed...shh...I usually get it made before

this time of day}, messy bathroom, cluttered kitchen, dishes in the sink,

dining room table laden down with ribbon , tape, my

creations, magazines...you get the picture!!


but...soon
I will:


help my son and dil make thanksgiving dinner,

feast on turkey and all the trimmings,

inhale some pumkin scones and

thank God for my abundantly blessed life!

reminisce about the past,

hug and kiss my grands,

laugh until my sides hurt and

thank God for my abundantly blessed life!

sleep in a warm bed,

sit in front of a cozy fireplace,

snuggle under a soft blanket and

thank God for my abundantly blessed life!

celebrate Christmas with our children and grands,

sit back and watch as they squeal in delight when opening gifts,

enjoy time with my family and

thank God for my abundantly blessed life!





Thanking Him today because I have totes ,boxes, gift wrap, tape

{it means I have been blessed with things that are not a necessity}

dishes, food, pans

{it means I have plenty to eat}


clothes, unmade bed

{it means I have a warm place to sleep and clothes for my back}

messy bathroom, cluttered kitchen, dishes in the sink, dining room table laden down with ribbon, tape, my creations, magazines and so much more than I deserve!!!!

{it means I have a roof over my head}

I am also so very thankful for each and every one of you who have come into my life via internet. I would have never dreamed how blessed my life would become because of you! Praying each and every one of you have the most blessed Thanksgiving ever!!

{white leaf and acorn embossed casserole dish...Martha Stewart...at Goodwill for $2.00!
Just had to throw that in...lol} 
Will link up with Kathleen for White Wednesday again this week, but will probably be too busy
to view many posts until after this week.
May you be blessed and may you be a blessing!!

What a pity,Sandi,we do not have thanksgiving in Holland.It does sound very nice and cosy.All together eating and enjoying each others company!But we have Sint nicolasday(dec 5th).A very friendly man (releated to father christmas)that gives presents and sweets to all the dear children.When the children are bigger we usually make funny present for each other and have lots of fun drinking hot chocolate and eat 'speculaas'.My mother always starts making that a few days before the actual day.When you smell the aroma of the spices of 'speculaas'you know sinterklaas is on its way!I guess every country has its nice traditions!
Enjoy and cherish them as much as you can!
You asked about the little skates on my blog.I do sell them.I have a little webshop(left sidebar on my blog)with several 'with love made'items.Don't know about the cost and all ,I have never sent things to America but I guess it's possible.
Nice to hear from you on my blog.Wishing you a lovely thanksgiving,Anita
