Thankful Thursday - Girlfriend Fun

I'm so thankful for girlfriends and the fun we have when we get together.  Last week, I met up with some of my high school friends.  We've been friends for over forty years!  We live in different areas in Florida, and sort of met in the middle, at a Cracker Barrell restaurant in Palm Coast.  After a great lunch, and a bit of shopping in the store, we sat in the rocking chairs on the porch and talked for hours.  Before we departed for home, we tried to take a selfie:

As you can see, it didn't go well.  We took several, while laughing ourselves silly.  This is the best one of the bunch.  When we dropped the phone, I looked up to see people in the restaurant dying laughing at us.  We finally gave up, and asked a passerby to take the photo for us:

This week, I had lunch with my friend Betty, who is also my son-in-love's mother.  I tell everybody, "When I prayed for G-d to give my daughter a good husband, I never dreamed He would also bring me a wonderful friend."  She's a lovely Southern belle from Mississippi, and I enjoy every minute we spend together.  She also reared a wonderful man who is an amazing husband and father.

We ate at Tea World in Titusville, and I highly recommend it if you visit the Space Coast.  We dined on tomato-basil soup, spinach quiche and fruit tea.  For dessert, we shared the most delicious, warm orange-cranberry scone topped with clotted cream and apricot jam.  I've never been a fan of scones.  My favorite line about them is, "In Georgia, we call these biskits."  Well, these were light, creamy and dreamy.  Not too sweet, either.

I loved this pretty plate, too.  The Tea Room sells a large array of tea cups, saucers and tea pots.  They even have my pattern, Old Country Roses by Royal Albert. 

This week, my sweet husband surprised me with this pretty bouquet of flowers.  He said, "Just because I love you." I'm so thankful for him.

I found this quote last week, and I love it because it is so true:

Sense of beauty is a gift of God,
for which those who have received it in good measure,
can never be thankful enough. - Gertrude Jekyll

I have a grate-FULL heart, and I just have to praise Him for his abundantly overflowing love and blessings in my life.

What are you thank-FULL for this week?

Thankful Thursday is my day to focus on and be grateful for all of the good things in my life.
