Give Thanks With A Grateful Heart

Let me begin by saying that I have enjoyed participating in a wonderful meme for the past several months at Linda's blog, 2nd Cup of Coffee. She has so faithfully turned out 12 random questions every week for a long time, giving those of us who participated a chance to share some of ourselves with the blogging world and also a wonderful opportunity to meet and make some wonderful new friends, which I have! Thank you from my heart, Linda!! ((HUGS))

Linda has decided to take a break from doing the Random Dozen and I understand completely!

So, in leiu of the Random Dozen, I've decided to take part in the 4th Annual Giving Thanks Challenge which is being hosted at by Leah at South Breeze Farm, which I found out about at my good friend Barbara's blog, Stray Thoughts!

If you would like to join us, All you have to do is post one thing you're thankful for each day somewhere on your blog. It doesn't even have to be an actual thought-out post. Just start making a list on your sidebar if you want - somewhere you can see it every day to encourage an attitude of thankfulness. You can click HERE to read more about it! start the month off, I want to say that I am so thankful for our little grandson, Jaylon, who is truly a gift from the Lord. He got a bit of a rough start in life, as he had to spend his first six weeks in the NICU at Ohio State University Hospital:

BUT.... he is now healthy as can be and how can I help but be thankful for that? Jaylon will be TWO years old on December 22! How the time has flown!! :-)
