Why are you downcast, O my soul? 
Why so disturbed within me?
 Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him,
 my Savior and my God. 
Psalm 45:5-6

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope this finds you well and
happy, and full of thankfulness.

It has been quite a week with all the
crazy news about the Boston Marathon
and the explosions in Waco, so I need
to remind myself of my blessings, and 
hope it will remind you of yours as well.
I am a bit late, but better late than has just been a lil busy
the last few days.

Started this list this morning and just 
finished a few minutes ago. it is late
Friday nite, actually it is Sat. morning
early 1:15 A.M. and our company just
left, so figured maybe I could finish
this real quick.

So getting on with it.....................

I am thankful
for a lovely day out on thursday, just
Dee and I,  we went shopping, had lunch at 
Cracker Barrel and then hung out at her house
for a while, It was such a fun day.

I am thankful
that hubby got an unexpected surprise this
week in his paycheck,  a raise........enough
to pay 2/3 of his car payment and then the
savings in gas pays the rest. 
 What a blessing!

I am thankful
that our lawn is starting to looks so lush
and green again,  thanks to fertilizer and
heavens rain. Looks like spring for sure.

I am thankful
for the fun time hubby and I had with Brooklyn 
on Saturday,  and that I get to watch her again
today for a few hours.  So looking forward
to it............can't believe she is 61/2 weeks 
old already....................yet it seems like she
has been with us longer.

I am thankful
for so many sweet ladies in my bible study
group that keep letting me know how much
they miss me.  So nice to know you matter
to people................

I am thankful
that my friend was able to get that much
needed test,  and now we are awaiting the
results, and hoping that it leads to the right
sort of help for her................

I am thankful
for 2 new books we got. I have already read
the first chapters,  and think I am gonna love 
them both.  One is "Wonderstruck"by Margaret
 Feinberg, and the other one was recommended 
to me by Sue over at I need Mom blog, 
 and is titled " Secrets over Sweet Tea", 
 it is a novel by Denise Hildreth Jones,
 have not heard of her before,  but it is pleasant
 and easy reading......think it is gonna be a fun
 book. Am wanting to get back into reading more.
Used to read all the time,  course, this time
of year with allergies if I sit for too long,
I fall

I am thankful
for dinner out last night with hubby. I met
him at Carrabbas after I left Dee's yesterday
and we just love their food,  and we have
enough leftover for din din tonight, all I
 need to do is make a salad.
Also because of a coupon and gift card
our dinner was only $7.50........
So appreciate those

I am thankful
that I found some salad plates yesterday
that look just like my corelleware but
they were made in Spain, because when
I got my dishes they did not come with
salad plates, they came with bread and
butter plates which are great for some
things like dessert or bread,  but too
small for a salad,  and they were just
$1 each,  and they had exactly 8, which 
was the magic number I needed...........

I am thankful
that we have secured a Condo to vacation
in this summer,  last year the mountains
of Tennessee,  but his year the beach.
We really enjoy the beach so much.

I am thankful
that we got to have some unexpected
time with Scott and Megan on Friday
night, especially since he is leaving
soon for a work trip to Spain.

I am thankful
that my friend that got the needed
test done was feeling well enough to
 come over and visit awhile, it was
a good and much needed visit.

I am thankful
they caught the terrorist that did the
 bombing in Boston. I am sure that is
 such an incredible relief to those that
have been so terribly affected by all
 this. Praying for all these dear folks.

Thanks for your visit and for your
sweet comments.  Always great to
hear from you.

So what are you thankful for today!

See ya soon,

Love, Hugs and
Relational Blessings,

Such blessings in your week (again)! We're on the road - enjoying spending time with our nephew (along with my brother & sister-in-law) exploring HIS part of the world. Today, if I don't chicken out, he's going to take me on a plane ride after a fly-in & breakfast...

Weather is VERY chilly here in Alabama where we are.

Sights, foods, conversation, experiences have been SO relaxing. And yes, I too am happy to know the last remaining bomber has been captured.

#1. Children are a blessing from the LORD!
#2. Hallelujah! The LORD blesses with our needs!
#3. My yard is trying to get there! I've been surprised I haven't gotten the rain that's come around our area, a few drops!
#4. Wow! how the time does pass! I probably won't recognize her when I see her again, ha! (She will have grown so!)
#5. My group is such a blessing to me! Are you going to start again now that you have your van back?
#6. I shall pray for your friend.
#7. I am in the process of reading two books. I should read one at a time, but I'm so caught up in them both, that I'm reading them both, ha! One is "GOD's Final WORD" by Ray C. Stedman and "Petrus Romanus" by Thomas Horn.
#8. I get spoiled eating out! In a way it's cheaper, because most of the food I buy goes bad before I can use it all (money down the drain as the saying goes.) The ladies in my Bible group has showed me how to get meals out for 5-7 dollars (due to seniors, or how to get coupons.)
#9. I think I hear the castanets, lol!
#10. Not to far away! I look forward to taking care of Molly. I will be baby sitting Sylvia's cockatiel for two weeks! She says he talks "up a storm" too, ha!
#11. Whoa, talk about castanets!
Maybe he can get some more of your dishes there (cheaper than here, ha!)
#12. I'm so glad.
#13. Hopeful and praying there are no others anywhere else.
Love to you all, Susan

Hi Nellie! You're going to the beach! That's terrific! You know I'm a beach addict.
It must be so much fun to have your new grandbaby coming over. She must be so beautiful. Maybe one day you'll get permission from mom and dad to share the cuteness.
I hope you have a gorgeous week. Many blessings!
