Thankful Thursday

My cousin, Gwen, sent this award my way.

I'm supposed to pick 10 blogs to award it to, but I know that some blogs are award free. All the blogs in my sidebar are ones that I visit (almost) every day and who have taken the time to visit me which I much appreciate it. It is hard for me to choose just 10. Instead I just want to say THANKS to all who wander my way and I hope that you will all come back often. Please visit Gwen at http://acharminghome.blogspot.com/ as she is having a giveway for October.
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
-- Melody Beattie


The above pictures were taken at Wadi Rum, Jordan -- sunset in the desert,a few years ago.

One of my very bestest friends, Lisa, just had her birthday. I talked with her at length on Tuesday evening. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LISA!
Wishing you all a wonderful day! Peace & blessings, Tammy

How nice that you got to talk to Lisa. I look forward to hearing about how she is doing. When was that picture taken of the two of you? I have a guess in my mind and want to know if I am right.

Hello, Tammy,
I received an award from Gwendolyn, too. I felt so very honored as I had never received an award before. I did not realize that you and Gwen were cousins. You are both very sweet ladies. I enjoyed seeing your desert pictures. I was raised in the desert in New Mexico. There is no beauty like the desert to me although many people fail to see the beauty there. Blessings to you, dear friend! Vicki

I can tell that I'm really going to enjoy your blog. You write so beautifully and the quotes you share are priceless. This one also spoke to my heart and has me in tears - sometimes I'm so guilty of forgetting the blessings that are right here before my eyes, in our own little home.

Thank you so much for the very timely reminder.
