Thankful Thursday

I could not have asked for a better day, weatherwise. We’re right at the peak of our fall colors and the weather was clear and warm. I went cranberry picking this afternoon, and dug potatoes bare-footed this evening. In between, I had visits from the two grandbabies. 

I’m thankful for fall, for sun, and for warm. I’m thankful for potatoes in the garden and cranberries in the forest. I’m thankful items crossed off a long to-do list. I’m thankful for God’s help to finish a few big jobs.

Yesterday Natalie took her first step. Today, Amelia grabbed her feet for the first time. Two babies, so different: Natalie is a busy, busy little doer; Amelia loves to sit and watch and smile at the world. Two perfect little blessings to their parents and to me. I am thankful to our heavenly Father who gave each one to us.

I’m thankful for orchard run apples in bins at the supermarket.

I’m thankful for God’s goodness to me, for giving me all these temporal blessings. I’m thankful that the One who has life in himself gives me life, both physical and spiritual.

I was thinking about cranberries yesterday when I was cleaning out pumpkins. I was wishing I had some to do some baking.

I like hearing your stories about your granddaughters.
