Thankful Thursday - This Week's Blessings.



I love this quote:


"Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many - 
not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some."

~Charles Dickens.

Since I missed last week, these are some photos of my blessings over the past two weeks.


Isn't this the most JOY-filled tree?  It makes me smile, and I just have to say, "Praise You, L-rd!" when I see something so beauty-FULL.  I don't know the name - sorry.


I made my first rubs and creams with doTERRA oils.  I made the labels, too.  Such fun! I love doTERRA. More about that another day.
                             I Love TRIM HEALTHY MAMA

I'm also thankful for my new way of eating with the Trim Healthy Mama plan.  More about that another day, too.


 Our synagogue held our first annual chili cook-off.  We had so much fun.


Brothers, Sam and James are so precious.  Don't they look like living dolls?  


Here, they are under the tallit, receiving the children's blessing.  


I'm thankful for some new bird feeders.


My pond in the backyard is looking bedraggled after our short, two month winter.  I'm so thankful that my sweet husband is working on it this week.  I'll show you the finished product next week, hopefully.



We've had lots of blackbirds over the last couple of weeks.  There are two types. The big ones are grackles, and the little ones are bronze-headed cowbirds.  I'll have close-ups next week.  All of these photos are from my phone. I also had a couple of red-wing blackbirds come through.  I'll show those next week.  

It's been a blessed, busy week.  I'm thank-FULL for work to do, and a beautiful place to rest on my back porch when the day is done.  We've been having some gorgeous sunsets here on the Space Coast.

What are you thankful for this week, Gail-Friends?

Thankful Thursday is my day of the week to focus on and be thank-FULL for all of the good things in my life.
