Around Our Sunday Table

Thou hast given so much to me,
Give one thing more, - a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleaseth me,
As if Thy blessings had spare days,
But such a heart whose pulse may be Thy praise.
~George Herbert~
As we gather around our family table this week,
hubby, son and myself,
there are so many things to be thankful for.
Hubby's cousin who was in the area of the Phillipines
that was hit by the typhoon has finally been heard from and is fine.
Our daughter received a bursary this year.
All her hard work is paying off!
Our daughter's internship interview went very well
and they are proceeding with the paperwork
to make it official!
That I didn't have to go out anywhere
on the really cold days this week.

That my son's business is doing well
and he will be adding another full time staff member.

Family celebrations.
This month's celebrations include:-
My parent's 45th Wedding Anniversary
My dad's 69th Birthday
and my in-laws 50th Wedding Anniversary.
 What are you thankful for this week?

  1. Hi, Alana, I love those sunflower candles! Your table looks beautiful. I am thankful that my son's lumbar puncture showed normal fluid pressure levels this week. I am also thankful that insurance finally responded and are paying most of his medical bills. I have already put in my two week notice at work and will soon be HOME(I love that word) full time!!

    Have a wonderful day with your family.
