Happy Thanksgiving

Millers Pond

Wishing all of my fellow bloggers a very Happy Thanksgiving.  Christmas Carols playing while the icy rain
pounds the windows, makes me aware of so many things to be thankful for, the simple things in life.

First and foremost Family, Mike and I are truly blessed to have our wonderful children and grandchildren.
Health, yes, something that is taken for granted, until we feel that first twinge or ache, so yes, thankful for
our health to be able to do whatever it is, even the most mundane task.
Happiness, to be a free spirit and enjoy the simple things in life, without anxiety or stress, self-imposed or
And last but not lease our faith in God, for without faith to get us through the rough times then we have nothing
to keeps us fortified until the brighter moment return.
