Question Time

       Every weekend I will have a blog post where I ask and answer questions.  It is a good way for readers to get to know more about me and also helps me to get feedback on a number of questions.  What are you giving special thanks for at this time?  I give thanks that my mother celebrated yet another birthday at the beginning of this month. She has been on this earth for many decades yet she has been able to rally around me during my illness. I also give thanks for the strength she has shown in facing life's blows and fighting on. Below is the special birthday card we bought for her featuring her favourite flowers, roses.  

      As usual I am participating in Friendship Friday hosted by Create With Joy where the theme this week is Something Good.  It fits in so well with my question this week.  I am glad that I was able to prepare a special birthday lunch for my mom although it was 1 week late.

Our good health. My husband. My precious dog Little Bit. My wonderful family. My home and that I have enough to eat. How fortunate we are to have a boat and be able to go so many different places. The list goes on and on.

Have a terrific day Judy. :)

Thanks Bex!

Cathy Kennedy said...

Every day I get up to greet the morning is reason to be thankful. I'm not a person with poor health, either. I just feel God's blessings and want to give Him praise for making it possible for me to be around another day.

It's a big blessing when our parents are given another full year of life, especially as they age. The card you gave your mother is lovely. I'm sure she loved it.

Hopping over from Amanda's T2Q!

Judy Haughton-James said...

You are right Cathy, we have to give thanks when we live to see another day. I consider myself blessed to have my mother around to help me through difficult times and especially at her age. Thanks for stopping by. I will be sure to visit your blog. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
