Reasons to be thankful:
Family ~ for bonds not broken
Sisters ~ they know the good, the bad & the ugly and love you anyway!
Friends ~ share laughter and sadness ~ joy and heartbreak.
Parents ~ for love, direction and support
Home ~ where love and safety surrounds

So many things to be thankful for and so many, many more to count!

Happy Birthday Mom

Cherished memories
Is what we have together
I'll always hold them dear
In my heart forever.

We did so much together
Just you and I
The love you gave me
Had a never ending supply.

The things we did together
I remember so clearly
These memories are in my heart
And I'll always hold them dear.

My mother would be 76 years old today. She passed away two years ago. I miss her so much~ her smile, her touch. No one will ever be able to replace her. She had a spirit that could not be broken or crushed.
Even death could not defeat her, for I know she is in heaven, surrounded by angels and sitting at the feet of Jesus.
I love you Mom~I always have~I always will.

Oh my, oh my! Where does the time go? I can't believe it's November already! Before we all know it, we'll be shopping and then celebrating Christmas!

I have two sisters whose creative juices are just flowing abundantly!
My baby sister just had her jewelry line accepted into a local shop for sale and my next youngest sister's knitting ability is growing by leaps and bounds!!

If time permits for anyone, I would strongly urge you to stop by and check out my sisters sites... Etsy :: C.Gail Designs & you won't be disappointed!!

JR still has had no luck in finding another job, but he's still looking! How's the market up there in Emmaus?? Maybe we will move closer yet! And if things couldn't be bleaker, his car is not being dependable. Every time he goes to use it, it won't start. Probably the battery. And THEN! Along comes some good news...JR's dad calls and says he has a truck for him that he picked up at a sale. It's ours! All we have to do is drive toJuniata county and pick it up!! Woo-Hoo!

Maybe the next time I write I'll have some new hobby that I'm working on and I won't be so green with envy!!!

As you make your way through this hectic world of ours, set aside a few minutes each day. At the end of the year, you’ll have a couple of days saved up.
