Day Twenty-Seven of Thanks

Giving Thanks Post Day Twenty-Seven
My Dads

I am very thankful that God gave me the Dad that he did.
I spent so many happy hours with him. : )
His was the kind of Dad that always had time for me.
He loved to drive and we spent many hours going for rides in the car,
and I am thankful for every one.
All those ice cream cones we stopped to eat, I am thankful for
and the times we stopped at a playground somewhere 
so I could swing on the swings.
My Dad and I went for walks together too. : )
My Dad was one of the most patient men I know,
and slow to anger.
For that I am thankful. : )
He told lots of corny father jokes 
but I laughed at all of them.
He died at home with me in 1999
and I'm thankful that the last words
I said to him were,
"I love you Daddy."

In 1970 my Mom married Eddie,
and so I have a step-dad too.
I am so thankful that God blessed me with
not one great Dad but two of them.  : )
Dad has treated me like a daughter
from the time I met him
and for that I am thankful.
He is a kind, caring, and loving Dad.
How thankful I am.

I have been blessed with one more Dad,
my Father-in-law.
How thankful I am to have known him and
to be part of his family.
 What a character he was. : )
He used to tell Ken,
"You got a good woman there."
 I am thankful to him for taking the time to
teach Ken so many things.
I am sad to say he died in 1992.
but he lives on in our memories. : )

I am truly thankful for these three men.
happyone : )

This morning while walking there was a beautiful
sunrise reflection in the little town pond.
Just had to share it.

Day Twenty-Six of Thanks

Good Morning and Happy Thanksgiving
 Giving Thanks Day Post Twenty-Six

I am thankful for all the roads to travel on.
Its pretty amazing when you think about it.
We just hop in the car and and we can go anywhere
on these black topped trails.
How quick and easy roads make it for us is to go where we want to.
We don't think about it,
we just get in the car and go.
I'm thankful for the people that made the roads.
Imagine what it was like cutting roads through the mountains,
or building bridges over rivers.
 Roads make it easy for us to travel to see friends and family.
So today as we travel along the roads lets be thankful for them.

Be safe and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
happyone : )

Day Twenty-Five of Thanks

Giving Thanks Day Post Twenty-Five

I guess those of you who know me aren't surprised to see
Pizza on my list. : )
I am thankful for all kinds of pizza.
Thin crust
Thick crust
and everything in between.
If I had to pick one food that was my favorite
it would be pizza.
I never came across a pizza I didn't like.
I prefer my pizza to be a 
plain cheese pizza. 
If I do have toppings I like
caramelized onions and red peppers.

What's your favorite?

Hope your day is a happy one.
Maybe one with pizza in it. : )

Picture has nothing to do with pizza 
but I took it on my walk this morning
over by the library.
