First things first. Happy Birthday to my little sister, Melinda Bennett. She is not the same person as Melynda who comments regularly here. Hi, Melynda! Actually, I'd say hi, Melinda, but I haven't gotten my little sister very interested in computers. Last time I asked her, she hadn't yet visited.
Next, are we ever really thankful enough? Today, I'm more than usually thankful for a warm house and a full pantry. The washing machine is swishing away getting our clothes clean for the coming week. What a lucky girl I am. Remember to take a moment and be grateful for what you have, whatever that is. Things could be worse. Gratitude is something very powerful and essential in our lives and getting more scarce in the secular and materialistic world we live in.
On that happy note, Husband is busy playing with his new DVD player. And by the way, when did DVD players need to be hooked up to the internet and where was I when this happened? And what is Blue Ray, again? Seems like only yesterday when Dad was recording the season fanale of Dallas for Mom, because she has a class that night and she didn't know how to time delay the video tape machine. Yes, children, that was before DVD players were conceived of or imagined.
Oh, and here is my inspiration for this. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com/2010/11/pumpkin-spice-thumbprints-and-csn.html
