S is for…

Count your blessings, name them one by one…


Here’s your sign…

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 week!

I am thankful for the volunteer Squash that keeps growing in our garden.

(People who put the innards of squash in their compost in the fall get surprises growing in the garden each summer.)

I am thankful for the beauty in the change of Seasons…

My four boys, summer 2000. Note the very dark tan hand around the baby's middle.

My four sons in the summer of 2000

Sometimes I am amazed to look at old pictures like the one above and realize that it has only been 13 years (not so many, really, compared to 50!) and yet our sons have grown up so much during that time. Youth is fleeting.

Your turn…

What are some of the blessings for which you are thankful this week?
