Giving Thanks

With Thanksgiving approaching quickly, I wanted to give thanks.
We all have so much to be thankful for.  I am very thankful for my loving dear husband, who has stood by my side through thick and thin.
I am so thankful my health is good.  I have fought the  big "C" three times and I am determined to beat it away for good!  I am thankful for my family, friends and fur babies.
The list goes on and on for giving thanks.  It's not all about the turkey and trimmings.

It's easy to get caught up in the frenzy of the holidays, so take some time and express your thanks.
I thank all of you Bloggers who take the time to comment and visit. I am very grateful.

It's time to share a tablescape I recently created with golden pears. 

 We just love our dining room.  It has ample room and storage.
