Give Thanks

End of August 026

I am thankful for a lot of things.  It’s easy to find things in my life for which to be thankful for they are abundant.  This year summer seemed to go by so fast and often the days were very cool.  Summer got off to a slow start and it seemed to take such a long time for the annuals to do their thing.  I planted these zinnias from seeds I saved from last summer.  I watched with interest as the seedlings grew taller and finally budded and bloomed.  I am thankful for the summer flowers.  How much they brighten our environment.  I am thankful that these zinnias bloomed so nicely before the fateful frost ended their beauty.  I’m glad that I have a picture of their bright summer beauty.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.
