Many Blessings

 And remember only two defining forces have ever Offered to die for you,

Jesus Christ

And the American Soldier.



One died for your soul,



The other for your freedom.


Standing proud in the front is My Grandson Jacob at Ft. Hood, Texas. I'm Thankful for you....Grandma blowing you kisses baby boy....



As Thanksgiving is tomorrow, I think we all take the time to think about what we have to be thankful for....


I'm always thankful for my Family....I wished we could all be together...but each of my daughters now have their own children and grand children, I'm Thankful to God for allowing me to survivor cancer and triple by pass surgery a year ago so I could see that life does do a full circle...Life is a BEAUTIFUL place to be....


I'm Thankful that each of my Daughters have wonderful husbands and children and Grand children.....

I'm Thankful for my home that gives me shelter, When so many don't have home's anymore...

I'm Thankful I can open my cupboard and have food...when so many don't....


I'm Thankful to Len who came into my life after losing my Wally, and who looked beyond my years and wrinkles but looked into my heart... When so many are alone...


I'm Thankful for Candace my Grand Daughter who gave up important 2 years of her life to live with me after Wally died...I'm Thankful for the wonderful young man Branden that she married and loves her to death....I'm Thankful for my sweet little Great Grandson Landen that these 2 gave me...


I'm Thankful for the Doctors at Dallas Children's Hospital that Saved Baby Kyra's life...

I'm Thankful for all my Blogging friend that have taken the time to pray with me this year, to just come by and say Hi !! You really don't know how Thankful I truly am for this....

I'm so THANKFUL to all our Service men and women who give me this freedom .....To have this life that I'm so Thankful for....

I'm Thankful that I live in the United States of America.....

But the most Important one I'm THANKFUL for is GOD, who have made all of this possible for me and each of us....


As all of us bow our head's and give Thanks on Thanksgiving....Remember life is not about the material things, its about the IMPORTANT things we give Thanks for....


May all of you have a Blessed Thanksgiving on your side of the mountain....I will see all of you ( I hope) after Thanksgiving.....

Hugs and smiles Gloria

Beautifully said by a beautiful woman.
Your cup truly doth runneth over. I would also like to add my heartfelt thank you to your baby boy and all those who serve to keep us safe. We owe them so much and I don't know if it's a debt that can be measured in dollar and cents...there just isn't enough room on a check for all the zeroes.
Happy thanksgiving and God bless you and yours.

Beautiful post and I so agree with you! I'm so grateful for you dear lady. You helped me begin my blog and gave me encouragement and guidance when I was about ready to throw out my computer & spit nails. :) You have a HUGE heart...that's prolly why they needed to work on it. It was stretched to the max of working on all the love you share with everyone!

I'm glad to call you friend and I always have you in my prayers.
