O is for…
Count your blessings, name them one by one…
I’m using Thursday posts to focus on thankfulness — and instead of counting blessings, I’m challenging myself to come up with them alphabetically. (You can find the rest of the posts in this series here.)
Welcome to O week!
I am thankful for the times my family has been able to camp at the ocean. While I’m a bit sad we didn’t get there this year, I have good memories from our 2 trips to the beach last summer.
One of my fun memories of the small fests in Germany was the time we wandered down a side-street and enjoyed a bit of Greek food. And ouzo. One man was happy to discover that we were Americans and wondered if we knew a cousin of his… in Chicago. (Um, no.)
It’s been a stormy week. After such a sunny summer, settling into the darkening days of autumn and humid, dreary weather is a bit of a downer — so I am thankful today for the color orange.
And that’s all I’ve got this week. I think the busy work-week and humid weather have scrambled my brain. Also, this is a family-friendly blog.
