Thankful Thursday June 14, 2018, and florals

Rejoice in the Lord always.
 I will say it again: Rejoice!
Philippians 4:4 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

How has your week been? 
Great, I hope!!

The last few weeks have been
great for us, as we have been away 
visiting Dee and Jerry (our daughter 
and son-in-love) in case some of you
 don't know who they are.  lol 
We always love being with any of
 our family..........

We just got back on Tues. evening
late, and got to have lil darling all 
day on Wed., like we usually do,
 and today we are going thru mail,
and writing down things we need
to accomplish right away, and had
phone calls to make, writing out
bills, and need to get unpacked
 and mow the grass, so that has
been and is our agenda 

Images today are of beautiful 
flowers, as they always cheer me up, 
and figured they would have the 
same affect on YOU.

Thankful today for an almost 2 week 
trip to Charleston to see our kids and 
to vacation in their house for 5 days 
while watching our furry granddaughter 
dog, while our daughter and son-in-love
 went back to St. Lucia where they got 
married almost 7 years ago..

Thankful for a safe and uneventful
 trip there and back, which was a 
great way to kick off hubbies retire-
ment.  We are all rested, relaxed
and refreshed and ready to get
some things done.

Thankful that Rosie's (their lil chijuajua)
 eye is fine nowas she had hurt it and 
actually had a scratch on her eye, so we
 were treating it with drops and ointments.

Thankful for the enjoyment and a 
flatter tummy from swimming in the 
pool. Now if I could only find a way to
 duplicate the movements of swimming
without having to build a pool.  lol

Thankful for a great time with our
adult kids as always, hanging out, 
relaxing and visiting, playing cards, 
eating good food in and out, golf 
cart rides, taking more pics, shop-
ping some, and sitting outside in
the evening and early morning
 when it was cool.


Thankful that our lil Rosie is
doing fine in another area too, as 
she had another seizure on Wed. 
morning after we were home.
 She had one about a year or so
 ago for the first time, while we
 were there and when they were
 about to go away, which was quite
 traumatic for all of us. They wound
 up cancelling there trip which was
 good since there was a tropical storm 
out there anyway, so it became the
 reason for their trip to St. Lucia this
year, as the tickets were already
 paid for and they had to use it or
lose it........

Thankful that the kids had a
really great time in St. Lucia
and got an upgrade on their
room at the hotel and even saw 
their Wedding photographer.
So a nice blast from the past.


Thankful to be home, even
tho we had such a wonderful
time.  Love our nest......


Thankful that it rained the 
whole time we were gone, so our 
yard looks gorgeous and green.


Thankful and shocked at how
much some of our trees and
bushes have grown, almost
double in size. Amazing!!


Thankful for a really big hug
and welcome from lil darling
yesterday and for lots and lots
of fun games of hungry hungry
hippo yesterday with lil darling, 
we had a blast and the game
 was definitely a


Thankful for President Trump.
His birthday is today and I hope 
he gets a well deserved rest and
has a wonderful time with his

Also very thankful for the supreme
court decision about the Masterpiece
bake shop situation.  Finally... after 6
years this dear man got justice. That
was also a great decision for all of our
 Religious freedoms......PTL

Well, that's it from Cozy Place.

Glad you could stop in......

and hope you have a great rest
of the week.

Hugs and Blessings,

  1. #1. Praise the LORD for rest and relaxation, even though you need to do so again when you get back, ha! I pray Rosey is doing well.
    #2. Yahoo, retirement! Especially for Jim after working since he was 17! And for you to now have him home with you all the time!
    #3. I'm so happy to hear Rosey's eye is on the mend! I pray she is otherwise doing well too!
    #4. I'm still looking for someone to decommission mine. I don't know if there are any contractors in our church or not that I could contact about that.
    #5. Isn't it heavenly bliss to be able to do these things retirement brings!!!
    #6. I wonder if the vet could put her on an anti-seizure med?
    #7. WOW! That's something to see the same person. Many times they move around and don't stay in the same place all the time.
    #8. I don't know who first said it, but it is so true, "There's no place like home!" I think it may have been Dorothy in, "The Wizard of Oz."
    #9. Yes, it has, and the grass really likes it!!! Mine almost needs mowing weekly! The back property looks so good to see all the green across the acreage!
    #10. We have surely had some "gully washers" to give them plenty to grow on. In fact it's clouding up out there now!
    #11. I am sure she missed you just as much while you were gone!
    #12. Yes indeed. I have prayed the LORD would restore his servant with great strength and energy to continue the great things GOD has for him to do for our country and the world.
    #13. YES! Praise our LORD in upholding His truths in our religious freedoms.
    Love you all, Susan

  3. Hi Susan,
    I deleted that one as it was a duplicate. lol The vet said Rosies scratch has healed.

    I really think you should call a pool Co. and ask them if they know of someone who does that?
    I would be very surprised if they didn't...

    Right now they aren't putting her on seizure meds cause they do not think it is epilepsy but
    they told Dee that if she had another one in the next week or so that they would because it
    could cause brain damage if she has too many, especially if they were like the 2nd one.

    Well, have a great weekend,
    Love, Nellie


Special thanks to all who take the time to leave comments..........They are very encouraging and very appreciated. I enjoy every one of them so much!!
