Sooner should be what is buzzing through your head as you read this- lol. I am thankful for Sooner football! It is something my DH & I enjoy together whether we are in Norman (once a year when we are lucky) or at home watching from the comfort and warmth of our Sooner Room. Tonight we will watch the Bedlam Bowl cheering almost as enthusiastically as if we were in the stands, again. Go big Red!!!

Black Friday

I got up at 4:15 to go shopping and actually enjoyed myself once the early crowd thinned out. I got most of my shopping done today so I guess I am thankful for all the employees that also had to get up early so that I culd have some fun today!

I am thankful today that all those indians and pilgrims settled into a great feast together so that we could have this great country to live in and a day to feast and remember all the blessings that we have, especially family and friends.
I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and may blessings be bountiful!

I am thankful for sweatshirt jackets today! I NEVER seem to be cold and I was cold on & off all day today- My friends at work gave me some awfully strange looks. I even had on shoes & socks; no sandals today. Oh well, I am home now and plan on some nice warm jammies and big thick socks! Oh yea, THEN I will be happy!

I just got home from my daughter's 1st Special Olympic Cheer-leading team practice. What a great time they had. I am thankful today for those that re able to help these special people have fun and do activities that they may have only dreamed of doing. If you have never watched a special athlete participate in something, you should give yourself a present and find the time. It will really warm your heart.

Snips & Trails & Critter Tails

How can my critters be left out when it comes to being thankful for the wonderful things in my life- by the way I am not doing this in order of importance-lol. We have always had pets as far back as I can remember; and so have our kids. My DH & I have always had a pet or two or more since we have been married and even before that. And a wide range of pets at that!
We have enjoyed the typical pets like dogs, cats, birds, aquariums and then we just kept going... a pond of Koi, chickens ( a couple of times), a piggie, a goat or two and our son raised an orphaned racooon who was truly a fun pet; we eventually released him back into the wild, which happened to be the woods around our home. We think he still comes to visit, maybe looking for a vanilla wafer or a marshmallow- his favorite treats!

If you are not a pet kind of person you are missing out on some of the best times and memories ever. Thanks for the memories

Veteran's Day

How could I ever think of being thankful for anything other than all the men & women that have made my home safe for me to live in and enjoy my freedoms that our forefathers set forth for this wonderful nation?
Thank you to all of you and those that are no longer here for me to thank, to their families. God Bless America

I returned to work after being off for a week. I was pleasantly (tho' not really all that) surprised, by the shower of hugs that I received from all my friends big & little. Some even came back for more. The children are what we are all there for, but the people that I work with are wonderful and truly there for each ofther as well.  So caring about everyone and everything. When one of us is going through something, we are all there, be it for support, a shoulder or a hug; they truly are wonderful co-workers as well as friends. I thank all of them for all that they have done to show their support and compassion for each other.

Thank you

Today I find myself thinking of all my cousins that I have reconnected with recently. I am so thankful for you! I hope that we just keep growing and find more in common and that writing to each other (or calling) will come naturally, without a second thought. I hope to add new happy memories to the old happy memories I have from my childhood of cousins coming to visit or me going to your house! Happy days everyone and I wish you a wonderfull week too! Love to all of you

I'm late, I'm late

It's just about 8 pm & I'm just now posting!

Today my heart is thankful for sisters.  All kinds, blood, in-laws and even those friends that are close enough to my heart that I think of them too as sisters. I can't imagine where or who I would be today, were it not for all of my sisters that had their hand in helping mold me into who I am today. Thanks gals, especially you, Jeni, for all you have done, still do and for all that is yet to be! I love you all.

My Dear Sweets

My dear sweet sister and my dear sweet brother-in-law sent me these flowers to brighten my day. Aren't they beautiful? I love seeing them everytime I walk into the room! I put the vase and a few small gourds in a basket just for the fun of it!

Rain,rain, here to stay...

For awhile at least- Not my favorite weather but we really need the rain around here. So, today I am thankful for the rain. I will sit here in my cozy home, (I turned on the heat for the first time yesterday) and enjoy my hot coffee and do a little scrappin'. Hope your day shows you something to be thankful about too.

In an attempt to get myself into the habit of blogging I have decided to post something that I am thankful for everyday during November; kind of like what facebook has going. 

Today I am so very thankful for my family, both close at hand and those that are a great distance from me; not just miles but also those members that I am eagerly getting to know.  I have enjoyed the messages that we have shared over the internet and look forward to not only continuing these communictions but also adding newly found members of our family.

So for now I guess this is it. Talk at ya later-

Let's get it started!

I am beginning a new chapter in my life so what better time to start a blog? I don't think that I am quite ready to go public with my "new chapter" but I will share the fact that I am at peace with it all.
