Well, I am ALWAYS thankful for my Jesus. And for my wonderful family. And, for friends who lift me up... which means I am thankful for you! There's a song by Newsong called "Sheltering Trees" that I love:(and this is going to blow your comments out, but I think you'll like it anyway....)

It's been said a friend is like a mighty sheltering tree
a place of refuge we can run when trouble comes for you and me
someone we can count on through the thick and thin
when the storms of life are blowing, there's
just nothing like a friend
(there's just nothing like a friend)

chorus:
we all need sheltering trees
friends in our lives who'll get down on their knees
and lift us up before the king of kings
we all need sheltering trees

there've been days that i was sure that i couldn't make it through
clouds of doubt came rolling in and i didn't know what i would do
i would've given in and said i just can't go on
if it hadn't been for a friend that helped me to be strong
(helped me to be strong)

chorus

bridge:
you can face the highest mountain and
the climb won't feel so high
or cross the darkest valley and it won't seem so wide
nothing is impossible when a friend is by your side.


Thanks for being a sheltering tree for me, Becky....

My great-grandfather ALWAYS ate his dessert first. I'm thinking it is a pretty good idea. He lived to be 95!

Thankful? Oh, too many things to even say. Especially this week-end (our Thanksgiving). And that apple pie your Mom made looks like the perfect dessert for the occasion too! (Sheesh....should have invited you. ;)

Love my family too. Wish My folks were still with us but they are in a far better place now.
Just an aside, we really were that close to the bear. As long as we weren't between she and her cub we were fine. there was a ranger nearby.
The whole day in the Sierra Mountains was so special.
Love the pictures of your family and the love that shines from their eyes.

The Drama Mama said...

I want some of that pie too! Move on over, I'm heading your way for some of the next one.

Thanks for stopping by my place today. I hope you enjoyed. I like what I see here too. ANd wow, your nephew's eyes knock my socks off. SO gorgeous.

I am thankful for my family and the love they give me. Right down to the poop I cleaned off the wall this morning. ;)

You and your sister look alike. Do you hear that often?

I'm thankful for caramel apples this fall! Can't wait to make a batch. (Of course, that means, extra caramel to be eaten with a spoon.) Your mom's apple pie looks delicious!

I'm thankful for YOU (frankly). You are sort of the best. I can't believe I was so lucky to meet you! What would I do without the internet so I could search out and find amazing people thousands of miles away?!

Now I know who all the beautiful people you post in your blog are!! I had homemade pie this week too! My sister is just starting to take a liking to baking, so I'm sure your mom's pie is better , but I would say my little sis is coming in strong :) Her pie was pretty darn tasty!

This is the second picture of pie I've seen in five minutes and it's making me so hungry for pie! Today, I am thankful for the really warm Fall weather that is here in Minnesota. It makes it seem like winter is months and months away.

You have such a beautiful family! I know all the hard work to make a pie and gone in minutes....well worth it! Pass me a piece...:)

I'm thankful for visits from family/friends, sunrises and sunsets, photography, and teaching. You know, there's just something invigorating (and draining) about having a set of 28 kids all day).

I love it.
