Thanksgiving Blessings!

THANKSGIVING

For each new morning with its light,

For rest and shelter of the night,

For health and food,

For love and friends,

For everything Thy goodness sends.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


Happy Thanksgiving to all celebrating the holiday.

Good Morning Renie,
Awww, I see you beat me up this morning. LOL. Well, I didn't have to set no alarm today. The kids are gone. But I did wake up a little after 6:00a.m. I had to start me some coffee and then I posted. Yeap, it is raining here this morning. The thunder is what woke me up. They say we may have some severe thunderstorms today. I do pray for a safe landing for your family. I seen on the weather channel last night where they were showing rain and snow for the Springfield area. Who knows what we will get. LOL. This weather has been crazy lately. We may wake up to a foot of snow on Thanksgiving. LOL. If you have time, come back by blog and get what I have for all by blogging friends. I do hope you and yours will have a "HAPPY THANKSGIVING". May God Bless You and Yours.

Hugs,
Karen H.

Thank you for your Thanksgiving wishes, friends.

I'm sitting here waiting to hear from my daughter that they have landed in St. Louis. Should be anytime now. Of course, from St. Louis they still have a 4 hour drive. This waiting is hard!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

A VERY BLESSED THANKSGIVING TO YOU DEAR. I HOPE YOUR DAY IS SPECIAL.

WE HAVE A FROSTY MORNING HERE AND I'M WAITING FOR IT TO MELT OFF MY CAR SO I CAN GO SHOPPING. I HATE SCRAPING ICE OFF THE WINDOWS.

I NEED TO BAKE A BANANA CREAM CAKE FOR DINNER TOMORROW AT MY DAUGHTERS. YUM!

(((Hugs)))

Thank you kindly, Tina and Bev! My daughter and family are off the plane and in the car driving out here, and should be here in two more hours, thank goodness.

Bev it's warm here, and a cold front coming through by tonight, so we have some strong storm possibilities later this evening. Hopefully, nothing too severe.

Have a great Thanksgiving, ladies!

Hi Renie ~~I hope you have a really
wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and you all enjoy the time
together, Thank you for yout comments. Glad you liked the Fleming/Churchill story and the jokes. The blonde ones are not meant
to offend anyone and it has become a habit ti pick on blondes. Glad you don't take them too seriously.
Take great care, and enjoy the holiday. Love, Merle.

Oh so you know I dont know how to place the awards on my blog.so I will just post it and tell the sweet thing you did for me.God bless you and thank you again.I left you a post on the award one.

Renie Burghardt said...

Leann,

I hope your holiday has been as wonderful as mine has been, and continues to be. Thank you for commenting.

To place the award on your blog, you right click it, save it to your documents, then go to Customize on your blog to add it. I know it seems hard, but it isn't. But if you can't get it on there, I will understand. Take care, my friend, and have a blessed weekend. My family is leaving Monday, so we're still celebrating here!

Hugs,

Renie

I hope your holiday was very special too.
