Thankful Thursday

Every Thursday I try to write about something I am thankful for.

I was looking at the photos of our trip to Canada earlier this summer and reminiscing about the great time we had with my sister and her family. We were constantly laughing, playing with the grandchildren, drinking tea, eating and talking.
Here we are, my sister and I with her two girls holding their children and my daughter beside me. I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for all my family, but today I am just showing a picture of the ones in Canada. I love you family!!!
We often take our families for granted don't we? Why don't you call someone in your family that you haven't talked to in awhile and tell them you love them.
Maybe they need to hear it today.

To anyone who read my post yesterday. It should have said it's NOT a quilt!


  1. I am Thankful for my health, and a healthy family, I am thankful that God saved me in 1974 and that I am able to tell others about him daily, I am thankful for the rain, it has rained a lot lately, and all the grass and flowers that are normally turning brown in the month of August is green and so beautiful, yes I am thankful to be alive, and well, and able to praise God.

  2. I am thankful for God first & all other things follow Him ... He has held me the most closely of all in life ... without Him, I am nothing.

    I am grateful for all the blessings He has bestowed upon me.

  3. What a lovely family picture. You have been Blessed :)

  4. You are correct in saying we take our families for granted...sometimes I catch myself being snippy with them and realize I would NEVER speak to a stranger that way...thanks for the reminder to be ever so thankful for our blessed families. They know us well, and love us anyway!

    Love the blues from yesterdays post.

    I'm thankful for family too - although this week I have quite a lot of family visiting....Must get back to the laundry room and put another load of linen in the washer.........

  7. Hi have a beautiful family...there is nothing like, I don't take them for mom taught me to always hug and kiss my family members before parting, even if just going to the grocery store, and said never to leave angry...when you lose someone, you realize how important family is. Thanks for this great post and sharing your Canadian family with us! Mary
