Bee Thankful...


~What a perfect time of year for this~

Living in thanksgiving daily is a habit that will
enrich our lives and the lives of those we l♥ve...

It isn't what you have in your pocket that makes you thankful, but what you have in your heart.

It is impossible to feel grateful and depressed in the same moment.
~ Naomi Williams ~

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive. Find a way to be
thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings.

I am thankful to all of you that follow this blog!
May the Lord bless you and your families during
this Thanksgiving Holiday season :) ♥ Hugs!

Are you thankful enough that you want to give my talk for me this Sunday? It's on gratitude. Please? I have this thing where I hate/abhor/loathe/despise/abominate public speaking. Either that or I'm terrified. Take your pick.

So, I'll be grateful when this Sunday is over:)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the compliment! I love to blog with 3 under three, I find plenty to talk about, ha!

And thanks for the reminders on being thankful. Everyone needs these once in a while. We recently had a slew of people in our church be diagnosed with cancer and it's so humbling to be reminded we're not invincible and no matter how busy or bad our days are, we should be thankful we got the opportunity to have it!

Thanks for stopping by our blog, feel free to stop by anytime! I love your blog, very cute and fun to look at and a joy to read.

Heather said...

Thank you so much for the nice comment on my blog. I also prefer to look at the sunny side of life. When I was younger everything that I thought was horrible eventually worked out, so I've learned not to be depressed about things.

(Keri) Auburn Gal Always said...

What a great post. I need the reminder in being thankful. Especially since Sissy knocked over a lamp just now and it didn't break and no one was hurt! I guess it's my lesson in thankfulness.

And how do you get so many comments. Most of my readers rarely comment - a mystery to me.

Pop back over to my blog and leave a comment at http://augalinfp.blogspot.com/2008/11/getting-my-merry-on.html to enter my contest for one of 2 custom card designs!

I just wanted to say that I love (♥) your blog. And I love that you have three teenage boys, because that will be me in a few years! Well, plus one girl. Thanks for commenting on my blog.

To add to your amazing Christmas gift list: give Sprite, and say "May your days be Merry and Sprite"!

I came here from Nikki's where she had 84 comments. Then I see that you have 56 comments. No wonder you two are the most grateful women I've read....I get 10 comments and think I've hit the big time. Now I know better.....now I know.....*sniff*

Thank you so much for checking out my little blog. The title of your blog could easily be a new post title for me right now, which I find terribly ironic and fun! I hope you will stop by often. ~Kelly
