Thankful Thursday March 25, 2021, Pics of Hubby and Lil darlings Birthday table


But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; 

may those who long for your saving help always say, 

“The LORD is great!”

Psalm 40:16 NIV

Greetings Sweet Friends,

Hope this has been a good week for you!

Our has been mostly good,  we have heard 

some not so good news from a few friends

 which was disturbing and has kept us

praying, but mostly it has been 

a good week.

Pictures today are a Beachy Tablescape for 
Hubby and Lil darlings birthday, which are
just 3 days apart.  They both love the
 beach.  So it is natural looking for hubby 
and whimsical for lil darling............

Thankful for a fun time out looking for 
a new sofa.  Found some hopefuls which
was encouraging, but they are not reclining
and think we are gonna really miss that
feature since we have been used to that
for almost 20 years.  So still looking!! lol

Thankful that each time we go looking
we learn more information in the process
and think it is helping us to narrow down
what we really want and hopefully how
to find it.  Which would be great!
Cause this is taking way longer than
we imagined......

#3 and 4
Thankful that thoughts of my friend Arlene,
that passed away 3 weeks ago, are on my
mind daily.  It is so amazing even when you
don't live around or see someone that much,
all the remembrances you have when they
are gone.  Maybe it's because she was on
 mind and in my prayers so many times
a day for the last 14 months as she battled
the cancer,I don't know, but I do know that
 I walk into our guest bedroom and there
 ar pictures she took, or go to my closet
 and there is a blouse that I bought when 
we were together, or a sweet book on 
friendship she gave me for my birthday
 years ago, or tea in the cabinet that she
 introduced me to.....or thoughts of sweet encouraging words 
that she spoke to me that come to mind.
They make me smile and weep, but
also make me so Thankful that I
had the privilege and Joy of having
such a wonderful friend as she, and
the Joy of knowing I will see here
again in heaven one day!

Thankful for getting the time to play 
with lil darling after school, we played
4 corners, school and she is the teacher,
we read, and we had wagon rides with
Grampy pulling us on his John Deere,
So much fun!!


Thankful for dinner out at our favorite 
Mexican restaurant.  They make the
 best  Chicken Taco Salads.


Thankful for sweet friends who came

by for a visit, with their Daughter

 and Son-in-law and new baby who

 is 4 mos. old, her name is Kylie and
she is so adorable Their Daughter 
lives in N.C. and is visiting.  Our 
friend, her Mom, is so excited about 
being a Grandmother, and of course,
is in love with Kylie. It was such a
sweet blessing to see them all, as
we have watched her Daughter
grow up as well.

Thankful for chicken nachos
that I made for dinner last night.
We always enjoy them and it
seems like a dish that I seem to
always have ingredients on hand
to make. So it's a win/win!
Here's my recipe if you would
like........Click here!


Thankful to hear that Kris and

her hubby from over at "Junk

Chic Cottage", have found a

Condo that they love, and it was 

right where they desired to be

and if all goes well they should be 

able to move from their cottage 

 right into their new home/Condo.

A definite answer to prayer and

We will all be looking forward

to how they make it their own.


Thankful for a sweet surprise

Easter card and lovely hand-

crafted gift for us and lil darling,

 from a lovely lady at our church.

Thanks Elsie......

Thankful for the beauty of all
the new leaves on all our oak
trees in our back and side yard,
so fresh and pretty and the most
beautiful shade of green the new
growth shows off!  and Thankful
that hopefully all the oak pollen
will soon all be gone, and I can
venture outside in my yard 
once again.

Thankful we got our Van serviced 
on Tuesday.  At the dealership we 
go to they have free movies while
you wait for your car to be done.
So we saw 2 good movies.  The
 first one was"The Secret", don't 
know how much of it we missed, 
but the part we saw was really good,
and clean as well.  The 2nd one was 
"Midway", which wasn't a movie I
 would have chosen to watch on my
 own but hubby has wanted to see
it, and have to say, it was quite
enlightening, and probably a good 
depiction of what happened  during
World War 2, in the battle of Midway
  It was tense and scary especially
 knowing it was a true event in our
history and especially knowing my 
hubbies Dad,  and my belated 
Father-in-law fought in that war 
and was a tail gunner on a dauntless
die bomber during this battle at
Midway.  Thankful I came out of 
there in tears thinking of what my 
Father-in-law must have gone 
through, and realizing what a Hero
 he was and we didn't even really
 understand that like we do now.  He
was on the Yorktowne Aircraft
Carrier during the Midway battle,
but the ship is now stationed in 
Charleston, SC, not far from where 
our daughter lives, as a military 
museum, and my Husband and Son 
have been on it, years ago, in fact
in the summer just before my 
Father-in-laws passing!  So 3
generations of my hubbies family
have walked on the Yorktowne.
Pretty neat!
Disclaimer: The movie does have some
cursing which lends truth to the old
saying "He cusses like a sailor"  lol

Well, here's the latest run down 

from Cozy Place

Thanks for your visit


Hope something sweet happens 

for you this week,

Love and Blessings,
