Thankful Thursday and The Smallest Blessings




Sonya at Truth 4 The Journey has invited us to join her and list of five things for which we are thankful.




And join The Southern Housewife for The Smallest Blessings. Check out her blog and see what its all about.







I love how our apple and cherry trees bloom in the Spring. This is the view from our patio doors by our kitchen table each morning.
The blooms only last about a week before they fall off. They are at their peek right now.

I am thankful for this blessing of the beauty of nature that greets our day.
Can't you just see grand kids climbing and sitting on those low branches?:)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

For my list of five things for which I am thankful:

1) For the beautiful Spring days that we have been having.

2) That the severe storms didn't hit this area last night as predicted.

3) For the lovely gifts that I received from my kids for Mother's Day.

4) For the blessings of wonderful family and friends.

5) And last but definitely not least--- For the blessing of another grandchild expected in November!!! Daniel and Jess are expecting a new little brother or sister for Sam!!!:)) Yay!!

Congratulations on the news of another grandchild on the way! How wonderful to have fruit trees. My husband loves cherries and we would love to someday have a cherry tree! I love the spring days too as Mary and I can work out in our little garden:) Hugs, Elena

The trees are so pretty this time of year. My mom's crab apple tree has the prettiest pink blossoms.

Congrats on your newest grandchild on the way! That'll be so much fun.
