I am Thankful For...

It is the time of year people start thinking about their many blessings and things to be thankful for. I had an email this morning that talked about the blessings that we should be thankful for. One of the statements was "I am thankful for a leaking roof and a yard that needs to be mowed because it means I own my home to make repairs on." Really that is a great sentiment. I am so very thankful for this old house of mine, even though the carpet needs to be replaced and the linoleum is peeling off the kitchen floor. I am also thankful for the husband I share this house with for so man reasons, but because on nights like tonight, he can make those repairs and I don't have to call in a professional.

My kitchen sink stopped up and the Drano didn't work. So, bless his heart, Frank set about getting it cleared and and cleaned up and even had time to spend on Mattie May.

Pipe snake - $27.00
Meal from EIEIOs because no water in kitchen $25.00
Being married to Frank for almost 25 years PRICELESS
