Happy Thanksgiving plus Flashback, Foodie and Flaunt your Flowers Friday

Flashing back over the time that's past since last Thanksgiving I found many things to be thankful for. Like friends who invite us to spend holidays with them and to share in the wonder of little kids waiting for Santa.

Like having an assistant nurse to help care for my patient, also known as my sweet and loving husband Randy who I'm also very thankful for.

Like parents who've celebrated their 75th birthdays in good health.

Like visits from favorite cousins

Like my favorite NFL team winning the Superbowl

Like having flowers blooming in February

Like still enjoying egg dying at Easter even if I don't have kids in the house.

Like baby Robins learning to fly on our back patio

Like finding a great donut recipe

Like enjoying a visit from my favorite son by marriage

Like still having room for "one more" new plant in my yard

Like having a cute little yard helper

Like having beautiful local gardens to visit

Like having a yard full of flowers from spring until frost

Like having a veggie and herb garden that keeps me always looking for new recipes.

Like having incredible scenery a short ride away

Like having even more scenery a little farther away

Like fun at the Fair

Like having Fairies living under my rhododendron

Like having a new job I'm loving and that happens to be a block from a great Farmer's Market

And like having the opportunity to spend time with my family in Louisiana and here in Washington a time or two

These are just a few of the things I'm thankful for from the past year. I'm also thankful for this blog because of the opportunity to share, the beautiful comments that so many of you leave and the friends that I've made. I hope that all of you had a blessed Thanksgiving!

If you have anything you'd like to Flashback to and or anything you're thankful for, add your link below and link back to my blog.

I'm joining in over at Flaunt your Flowers at Tootsie Time and Foodie Friday at Design's by Gollum this week. Check them out!

Such a wonderful post. We don't have Thankgiving Day in Australia, but seems to me having a day set aside to give thanks would be very worthwhile.
