I need structure of some kind to choose the five things I’m most thankful for, so I have decided to choose one item that pleases each of my five senses.

Sight. There are so many pictures of beautiful sunsets in these wide-open plains where I live. They are particularly gorgeous this time of year. Does temperature change have anything to do with their beauty? I don’t know but I appreciate the Lord’s artistic blessings of color.

Hearing. My sons and their wives bought me an unusual style wall clock. It is unique in many ways. When it changes hours, many moving parts provide action and music.

Taste. I tend to like heavy kinds of food which are more fitting during cold weather than during summer. So I indulge in tacos, chili, beans, and potato soup.

Touch. Oh, the comfort of silky, soft, and warm blankets, wraps, and robes!

Smell. Of course, we are still in the pumpkin spice, cinnamon, and cedarwood season. They are nice but even better is when I get to smell the homemade bread Renee bakes. Add the smell of a wood-burning fireplace to make it perfect.

I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
