This quote touched me this week and I hope it blesses you.
"Be happy with what you have and are,
be generous with both,
and you won't have to hunt for happiness."
~William E. Gladstone.
My hamentaschen turned out well, as did our party last week. I loved seeing the children in the Torah procession:
The oldest rabbi in Israel showed up to read the whole magillah (book of Esther).
The congregation enjoyed making lots of noise during the reading.
A good time was enjoyed by all. To learn more about Purim, click on this LINK.
We enjoyed celebrating our daughter's birthday. Instead of the usual birthday cake, I made a "fruit" cake. You should have seen my grandson's expression when I brought it out. "I thought you loved us" was written all over his face. I added some sugar-free whipped cream for the ones who wanted it. It really was delicious!
It's a watermelon slice topped with fresh fruit and coconut.
We took our grandson shopping to buy his momma a present. He picked out a crown. What a perfect present!!!
There's no better JOY than having my loved ones at my table. I'm a blessed woman, and so thankful.
What are you thankful for this week, Gail-Friends?
Thankful Thursday is my day to focus on and be thankful for all of the good things in my life.
