Those are such wonderful things to be grateful for. I believe many of us can count some of those as blessings these days. I am glad you are sharing yours. You should link up to my Sunday Blessing Meme. I write it each week.

At this time especially we have to reflect on those things. Stay well and give Romeo a hug for me. He's such a cutie!

Thanks Carol, I'll have to take a look

Kristina, there is so much to be grateful for isn't there? I prefer to focus on gratitude over mass panic and media sensation. Romeo is a good dog I'm sure, I'm most grateful for the health and happiness of our pets. I'm missing greens lately! But surprisingly my basil plant is still alive, go figure!

Nice to see an uplifting blog like this. With so much on tv the same news over and over again, and not good at all, I turned on the Syrias (sp?) channel 959 which is 50s/60s music in our area and listened to it when I wasn't on the computer or watching tv, and of course, I sang along to the songs I remember the words too. It was fun, for a change.
Several ill in our county. I'm staying home mostly. Bro Tom has to go to work because he works part-time at an Assisted Living home for old folks and also at a grocery store, and both need tended to. He had a long day today, but they were grateful because they got a huge truck of supplies in for the store and the town has been running so low except for that one store where he works. The other major chain hasn't had much for days, so people were getting anxious.
Never seen anything like this in all my 72 years, but have heard of the influenza epidemic of 1918 which took one of our Grandmother's young sons.
We just need to knuckle down and obey the CDC. That's the best we can do.
And pray for one another, diligently.
Dear Lord, raise this scourge from us as only You can, in Christ Jesus name. AMEN!!!
God bless.

RB, agreed. I got tired of all the negative stuff on the TV and wanted to post something positive. Yes, praying for our country.

Rain, Romeo barked at county workers yesterday for hours. He's a good dog for sure. My basil is doing great too, and I plan to dehydrate some of it.
