Happy Thanksgiving... .. .

It's been quiet at the Treehouse lately because of having family in town. That's a good thing! It's been nice being away from the hustle and bustle of the internet. I'm enjoying this time of year..not the changing of the leaves or the chill of the Fall season (living in Florida doesn't grace us with those luxuries)...I'm talking about the time of year for Thankfulness. Having family in town provides that gift.

It's always the little things that make you realize how big they really are. We've been to the zoo, had meals around the table, been to church together, watched movies at home, I'm learning to sew, been to a Quilt Show, celebrated Sister Bear's birthday on the 11th and the list goes on..... Now we're planning a little trip across the state to visit friends for Thanksgiving and I'm continuing to open my heart and simply just be thankful for the love of family and the blessings that God provides e a c h day.

My husband's hugs make me feel so loved, my daughter's smile (her eyes light up when she smiles at me) warms my heart, my son's voice and sweet big eyes make me happy when we sing "You are my Sunshine" together.

I love this verse for the week, it's written on tonight's dinner napkin.....

So enjoy your week and Be Thankful for all the little things that make life feel full and rich with love. Be back next week.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanks! Happy Thanksgiving to you too. We are all adjusting and doing well. Thank you for asking. We have the luxury of visiting the quiet west coast of Florida (our heart) and plan on making that home again....eventually. It's our prayer. If the Lord wants us there, he'll bring us back and make provision. For now, it's a great place to visit, often!

How was your Thanksgiving? Snow yet?
