Thankful Thursday - November 11

I have so much to be thankful for!  Where to begin...

#1 - The fact that we own a carpet cleaner to clean up messes.  Today we welcomed the day with a sick dog and the NEED for a clean up in several places.  **Ugh** And this after just shampooing the carpet on Monday!  It was NOT the best start to the day, but I am grateful that I could quickly spot clean the messes.

#2 - I live in a country with freedoms that many others do not have.  While it may be frustrating at times when individuals try to stretch their freedoms, I am still free to speak out and up when I feel led to, and I am free to worship my Lord and Creator without fear of prosecution or death.

#3- Our country is and has been protected by men and women that have given their lives for those that live here.

I am sharing this video that has touched me over the years... (while it was written for the Canadian Remembrance day, The United States fought the same war... and today we remember those that have served.)

Take a couple minutes to listen... and tell a Veteran "Thank you for your service."

- I am thankful that I am nimble and flexible enough to spend time on the floor to mark quilting lines.

I'll be in my studio quilting a "hanging diamond" grid on the Cat Quilt, hoping for a "Friday Finish"!

What are you up to?  I hope that your day had a better start than mine!  

If you have served in the military, "Thank you" seems as though it is not enough, but know that my appreciation comes from the bottom of my heart. 

God Bless!

  1. I totally understand #4 - I'm thankful for being able to move to work on our house project.

  2. Good stuff. Love your kitty quilt, too.

  3. Love your Give Thanks wall hanging.

  4. awe that is true. You live with some freedoms. The problem is some people want freedoms ( I live in the US) without considering that their freedoms take away other people's freedoms. There always is a cost, we'll always need to get along with others so we can each have some freedoms.
    thank you Melva for adding to our wee group of I Like people... I got your link right and will let it ride if you want

  5. That little kitty quilt sure is cute! I avoid it, but I am very thankful anytime I can get off the floor after getting down. Thanks for sharing your kitties and that beautiful give thanks quilt at Wednesday Wait Loss.
