  1. I am thankful for my friends, the Murphy family….Pam, Michael, Hannah, Sarah, Jenna……and family. I’m blessed to be Hannah’s godmother! Your girls are amazing! Thanks for your friendship and being there with kind words when I needed them!

    I thank you so much for commenting, Lynn.
    We are blessed to have you in our lives as well!
    Hope your T-Day was awesome!

  2. That is quite the list! Aaron? (Have I missed your post about Aaron? 😉 )
    Grilled venison at Stick’s – not many people would list venison among their ‘favorites;’ but my late brother in law grilled the best venison – it was delicious, always part of our Thanksgiving, and is being missed.
    ‘Another chance to do good’ – I’m very thankful for that. My family, of course. They are the best part of my life.

    But like Lynn, thank YOU for putting your thoughts out here like you do. Putting words to emotions as so many of us can’t. <3

    Thanks, Lolly!
    Aaron is Jenna’s boyfriend and we smoke cigars and pipes together on my deck.
    The venison I speak of was eaten in Australia at a little place called, ‘Stick’s Mancave’.
    Pamela loved it too!
    I hope your T-Day was perfect and I thank you for still reading my sparse postings.
    Look for a few before Christmas!
    Take good care.
