Today I am GRATEFUL for:

imageServicemen and Servicewomen and their families, especially my cousins. One of my cousins who lives in North Dakota posted today that her husband was back after six month duty away from home.  I am so thankful for these families who sacrifice so much for the rest of us. This thankfulness is spread to thousands of families across our country who have family members that stand in harms way for me.  I could never repay you or express my gratitude in an adequate way. Thanks to you all.  Every night I pray that God watches over you wherever you serve.

I’m also thankful for those in my family who served in the past in peacetime and in war.  This goes back all the way to the Revolutionary War.  Thank you for our freedoms.

imageMy hands in wet clay. I am reconstituting dried up clay in the studio. I had forgotten how good it feels to have my hands in wet clay. In a couple of days I plan to throw some.

Music.  I was working in the studio for a while today when I realized it was dead quiet in there. Molly was lying on the floor.  I turned on the stereo on my favorite radio station and did something I have not done for years. I danced. This freaked Molly out and she tried to be my dance partner.  I broke down laughing. Thanks rock and roll radio station.


Thank you so much for the men and women who serve in our military to protect us.  Bless them as they serve and sacrifice so much.

Thank you for fun and dancing and laughter with Molly.

Praise Gratitude & Joy


Deuteronomy 32:3-4
3 I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! 4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.

Psalms 13:6
I will sing the LORD’s praise, for he has been good to me.

Psalms 16:7
I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.

Great Music What a fun afternoon at Open Mic Sunday listening to some good old rock and roll.

Smart phones I love the ability we have to stay in touch through our smart phones. I get pictures of what is going on in Heather’s life on a daily basis. It makes being so far apart more bearable. I also have several friends who are in different countries over seas on vacations and their shared pictures have been a lot of fun. This summer I have seen Spain, France, England and Germany. I know there were more, but I can’t remember them all. Thanks Gilli, Celibeth, Crystal and Dana for sharing.
