Giving Thanks Friday


This week I am thankful for: 

Homemade ice cream topped with fresh picked raspberries ~ seriously, who needs dinner when you can have this for dessert?!

Sunglasses.  And the need to use them this week (even if only briefly...).

The encouragers.  Those who come beside and cheer you on.  The ones who make the days brighter, the moods lighter. 

The pitter-patter of raindrops hitting the roof, watering the garden and keeping things green. 

Beautiful, God-breathed,sunrises that start each day anew. 

What are you thankful for?

May your weekend be filled with many reasons to give thanks!



  1. I am thankful for lovely bloggers who have become friends. *hugs to you, Mindy*
    I am thankful that it's Friday and after a long day in the kitchen, I've got an interesting gazpacho (translation: I have no idea how it's going to taste! lol) and two dinners done for the weekend.
    Enjoy your weekend, Mindy and thanks again.

    1. You are so welcome and happy to be a friend! Thank you for letting me be a part of your blog for a day. Have a great weekend : )

  2. Mmm...homemade ice cream :) That is a favorite of my husbands. I am thankful for friends and their sweet, godly influence in my life, a piano to play hymns to the Lord, my son's tender hugs, and my husband's everlasting love :) Have a wonderful weekend!

    Hugs to you!

    1. Such a great list of things to be thankful for Stephanie! I love listening to the piano but only know the one handed, one finger version songs haha. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. I am thankful for the ooomph to go exercise, for the desire to write, for my children and grandchildren, for blog-buddies like you, for Cafe Vienna (love that stuff!), for air conditioning. It's HOT today :)

    Peace in Christ,
