Reblogging one of my favorites, in faith that my week will be very much like my normal wonderful Thanksgiving weeks. Doubt that I will be back for reading or writing for the week. Have a great week. Praise God for the little things. Big things we might have to wait for. 😀

Sweet aroma


Too busy to write,

Too busy to read.

Just taking a look

Here and there.

Grabbing bites;

Settling fights.

Who is right?

Late into night.

Playing old games;

Learning new names.

Meeting new folks;

Telling old jokes.

“Come on in, you all;

My, you’re getting tall.”

Pot’s boiling;

Mama’s toiling.

Thanksgiving sounds,

Gaining pounds.

For all these things, Lord,

I’m ever so grateful.

Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. 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...

    Happy Thanksgiving to you too! We will be in Tucson by then (hopefully) so a brand new experience for us. Just a couple headed to a new place and hoping for a community dinner, but if we have to cook our own in our RV, we can do that too! Grateful for whatever we end up with. 🙏☺️
