    Hello, I stopped by again. Thought I would share a few things for Friendship Friday. Hope you have a good weekend!! See you on Monday for Veteran’s Day!


  3. Theresa says:

    Thanks for hosting. I am grateful to be with family this weekend and celebrating a wedding. I never take these moments for granted & am always happy to connect or reconnect with family & friends. Happy weekend to you!

  4. Donna Heber says:

    Wonderful dreams from last week Ramona. I am just so thankful right now for being able to wake up in my own bed and for electricity. After seeing what Hurricane Sandy did to lower New York and New Jersey I can’t take anything for granted. My heart goes out to those in need. I don’t know how I would get through something like that. Have a good weekend and thank you for hosting.

    • Dear Donna,

      You don’t know how thankful I am for those very same things!
      I have read some horrific stories and emails from our very own readers and my heart just goes out to everyone!

      I can’t even imagine being homeless in those areas during the storm!

      Have a beautiful weekend Donna – stay safe and warm!

  5. Beth Ann Cbiles says:

    Joining in today —it’s been awhile!! Thanks for hosting and today I have a lot to say about gratitude!!!! Great to read what everyone else has to say!!! Thanks again!

  6. Wayne says:

    Thanks for being such a gracious hostess….

  7. Joyce says:

    I am grateful for having my health back. Due to not eating enough veggies and fruits my potassium went so low I had no energy, numbing in my right arm, and my equilibrium was out of whack. So, instead of sitting on the internet for hours, I am going to use the energy I have to do more away from the computer right after I link up with all the blog hops and such.

  8. Dawn says:

    I think I am grateful for the way He has changed me- so I wrote about that this week…learning to accept that He is able to change others…in HIs Time. Harder to be patient with that – especially when you can’t see . Guess that’s why we need to keep our eyes on the one who changes us and off of others. Happy Friday!

    • So so very true Dawn!
      I have been reflecting this very week on how we are all works in progress…
      About how we may be new creations in Christ, yet we are being re-created in his likeness more and more each day!

      Have a blessed weekend Dawn, and thanks for being such an inspiration to us all! 🙂

  9. Brenda Youngerman says:

    Ramona thank you again for featuring me… I saw this topic last night and had a ‘perfect’ post written in my head about how we should stop complaining about everything and look for the silver linings…like we have a roof, food and transportation. We have our health and our childrens’ health… and then I read my emails and had to change my post completely around….. I hope you like it!
    Have a great weekend

    • I’m like that too Brenda – have everything planned out and then at the last moment, go and change everything around!
      Looking forward to seeing what you ended up writing.
      Have a magnificent weekend!

  15. Lisa says:

    Today, I am so grateful for the precious gifts of my children, and my soldier husband and the sacrifices he has made and continues to make. Thanks for hosting. I was glad to linkup again this week. 🙂

  16. Michelle says:

    At this exact moment, I am thankful for the gift of friendship. Having a group of friends that can come together in good times and not-so-good times and lift one another up. Wonderful topic this week and very fitting with the season I’m in spiritually and emotionally. Many thanks to you 🙂

  22. i think we tend to take our love ones for granted. we all fall into this trap somehow, as time and responsibilities get the best of us. Have a great week.
