Grateful

I am thinking that this week is a super time to write about Thanksgiving in an accumulation of small things.


As I think about items in preparation for our feast on Thursday....I noticed this little glass dish.  It has seen many Thanksgiving Dinners with cranberry sauce in it.  I am thankful for cranberries, this dish and fond memories of family passing the cranberries.

As I set out for work this morning...I am grateful for my job.  I am grateful to only have 2, count'm, 2 work days this week!!!!   Yippy for holidays!



This next picture you notice is some money.  Do you notice anything particular about it?





This is a silver certificate. 
 I received it at change from Taco Bell.  I then used it to pay for my ticket at a high school productions of Curtains.

The nice, honest teacher, taking money told me it was worth more than $5...and let me have it back.

Gratitude!


Name 3 things you are thankful for.

 Merry, Mary
