Gratitudes 22

Greetings and Holykisses!

It's been rainy here and posting has been difficult. In fact; somehow this blogpost just published while I was still writing it. lol --Anyways; I hope to continue on and share a few random blessings.

1. I'm thankful today that it's my Sister's birthday! December 15th is a special day for my family! I'm grateful for my Sisterbear.

2.-I talked to her on the phone today! It was good to hear her voice and that wonderful giggle.

3. The health of all my family!!!!!!!!!

4. Pictures from a beautiful Scottish friend; her Sweet William and
the Fergmonster.

5. For heavenly sunlight in the barn this week. I witnessed even the Christmas hen up above
basking in it.

6. For this new calico friend who walked all the way to the pond and back with me today.

7. For getting the Christmas tree up and decorated!
There's something wonderful about rising while it's yet dark and doing my bible study in front of the twinkling tree.

8. For the five ducks that stayed for most of the week before saying goodbye to Hairdoo.
-Today, I found him with one she duck who came back!

9. Getting all the Christmas shopping done a little early this year.

10. A free spiral cut ham from Myguys' work!

11. The completion of our latest bible study.
I don't know if I'll have another at my house or if
this season is over for a time. --But ... it
was a good thing and I'm grateful for what
I learned from and through it.

12. The word "patience."
It keeps coming- like a heaven sent reminder.

13. My fun husband who
doesn't need mistletoe.

14. A long chat with an old friend.
I've missed her.

15. For an Angel who lives in Spearfish.
I just know she has real wings.

16. For a friend who always tells me to quit thinking about what I don't have and
remember what I do have. What a cheerleader she is.

17. I'm thankful the birds must have started a rumor that our feeders are full.
They're coming back and I just love watching them!

18. For a financial error that actually is going to be for our good!
Wow that doesn't happen too often. lol

19. That all 9 chicklets are alive and thriving.
They're so much fun to watch! And their little Momma is just the sweetest lil thing.
What a joy in my life.
I'm thankful... for all these things and so much more.

Thanks for visiting the Shed today!
