Thankful Tuesday

My friend Tricia of Bluff Area Daily sent me a surprise gift. It is much appreciated and I'm thankful for friends at this time in my life. I can't possibly list all my close friends from my blog life but I'd like to pass it on to these great friends.

Betsy and George from Tennessee. Darla from Florida. Carletta from West Virginia.
Jack and Joann from Virginia. Tipper from North Carolina. Jo and Gene from Texas.
Tom from England. Thomas from India. Kostas from Greece. Susie from Arabia.
Joan from South Africa. Pietro from Italy.

I can be thankful so much for my operation. I'm not at 100% but am improving each day. My nephews cabin at a church camp has this sign out of the front door.
I looked to the heavens for help and my wish of discovery came through. At the sign above I looked to the heavens and saw this sight on the tree. The nature of God coming through. I am thankful for all my great friends besides those listed.

Thank you, Tom, for the kind words. Thankfulness is something I think we all need to practice more, and I am thankful for the wonderful people we meet in the blogger world.

I love it when it seems God shows me something through nature--as if no one on the planet is more important than me.I think that's exactly what you feel/felt.

WOW Tom!! I am greatly honored. Thank you!! Some days, especially when we are not felling well, it is good to look around and see all the things we are grateful for. We take so much for granted sometimes.

I am pleased to hear you are feeling better Tom. In no time at all you will be off chasing the butterflies again. :)

Amy Wagner said...

That award could not have been given to a better person!
Glad you are getting better and hope you'll be 100% very soon.

Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, but more than that, we all see different things in the world as it presents itself around us. That's proof of something, I'm not sure what ...

Warren Baker said...

You deserve all those friends FG. Don't forget you are a friend to all of them too.

Wow how nice for you to get the suprise-I know it made you feel better. And thank you for passing it along to me-I truly consider you a very close friend-and am so thankful we met!!

I love your photo of the sign. Although my recent illness certainly doesn't compare to what you've been through-at my worst moment I cried out to the Lord and he answered my prayer within the hour. So your photo says it all for me too. I'm still praying for your continued improving health!! I hope like Pap after his stint-you feel like your 20 years younger :)
