Thankful Thursday - Loving Life

This week, I'm thankful for my son-in-law love, William.  We had a birthday party for him, and I made his favorite lasagna.  Instead of a birthday cake, he wanted tiramisu.  Publix made that, and it was so good.

William is a wonderful husband and father.  When I prayed for my daughters to be given good husbands, I didn't even know what that meant.  Hashem knew, though, and he sent his very best.  William has a servant's heart and is always on the lookout for someone who may need a helping hand.  He's kind, gentle, talented, and hard working.  Our grandson has a perfect role model to learn how to be a good man.
World Read Aloud Day
 I'm so thankful for books and love my Kindle, too.  I've even converted my husband to reading e-books occasionally.  Our grandson loves reading, too.  About a week ago, we celebrated World Read Aloud Day by reading Treasure Island.  Even the dog joined in.  Well, she didn't read, but she did listen...

Here she is decked out in her sweater on one of the very few days we've had of winter.  I'm always thankful for life in paradise because I love warm weather.  I think she does, too, because she doesn't like to do out when it's cold. I don't either. Our temps have only been down to the mid-forties a couple of times over the past two months.  For that, I'm very thankful.

This week, I was sitting on my back porch listening to the birds singing, and my heart just overflowed with joy.  I thought I'd share it with you, Gail-Friends.  I'm so thankful for my back yard and for my Golden Pond and Garden.

This graphic pretty much describes me.  Add in some writing, drawing, painting, and photography, and it would be perfect.  I'm thankful to be retired and able to enjoy them.
