Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for Joy.  Not really joy for myself, though seeing others happy does bring me joy, I mean the joy of others.  My son harvesting a buck last weekend, my daughter laughing with her youth group, and seeing my sister-in-law happy to be trying marriage again.  


"The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life."

  4. Lovely thoughts....I am off today to try some joy in my new trailer. Be back soon. The wind storm is over and there has been a lot of devastation but we are cleaning up and getting power back in the next few days. I have power back but need a shakedown cruise with my trailer to see if I have everything I need for winter camping.
