Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for lunch dates with the girl of the house.  We dropped all plans on Tuesday to have lunch and do some shopping.  She has one more year of high school and then will be off to college.  Granted, she won't be far away, but will be moving on with her life.  Lunch dates are to be treasured.  

What are you thankful for today?  Big or small, both are equally meaningful!

  6. Change is inevitable. I hate it but can't do anything about it. And then our kids get on with their lives and it's hard to them to fit us in very easily. So, yes, go to lunch, and be sure to tell her how much you appreciate her taking the time to do that and that you love her more than anything although I think she already knows.

  7. I'll never forget when my oldest son took a job nearby and came home for lunch. We sure enjoyed our time together. Now we live far far apart and I miss him. Enjoy this special time! I'm thankful for beautiful weather! Hugs!

  9. Our daughter is a grandmother herself now, and I still treasure mom-daughter lunches at our favorite restaurant. (Getting homesick .... at this stage of life, her father and I are the ones who fly away for part of the year.). Thank you for hosting....I’m still grateful for the ability to travel and for warm toes during the Winter.)

    1. Sallie, warm toes in the winter are a treasure! I warm mine up by the woodstove.

  10. How fun. Yes, life moves on and although the next stage is wonderful, it isn't quite the same as when they were in high school! Love the photo. Not quite violet season here in Ohio yet.

    I'm thankful for sunshine today. It's brilliantly bright. Even though it's cold, it does make things seem better. haha.

    1. Teresa, she will only be 45 minutes away. But, very busy I am sure! Time does fly. I can't believe I have two grown children.

  19. When I lived in the city it was at times challenging to take nice photos of the sky - but here on the country side I just have to stand on the deck and point my camera in some direction:)
