33 DAYS UNTIL WINTER

Life is a Special Occasion!
Today is Mickey Mouse Day! This holiday celebrates the birthday of everyone’s favorite animated mouse. He’s also one of the most famous, and is the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
November is National Pomegranate Month. Peanut Butter Lover's Month and Family Literacy Month
This week is American Education Week
If you can't see the Bright Side, polish the dull side
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse.
Most everyone in my family loves Mickey Mouse and that includes the grandchildren. The cake pictured was made by DS#5 for his two daughters’ birthday party that I went to last Saturday.
It seems that Mickey Mouse always loves an adventure and when it comes down to it Life is an Adventure. All of us are on a journey and have seen some pretty amazing things and there will hopefully be many more to come.
The weather forecast for this week seems to be snowy and cold. Right now it looks like Saturday may just be the best day weather wise and that is a good thing as that is when we travel to DS#6’s house to celebrate our family Thanksgiving celebration.
If you don’t live in the cold and snowy north then you don’t have to worry, but I’m praying for clear roads for travel time this coming weekend.
I hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!
36 DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS
The first Sunday after Thanksgiving is when Advent begins, so today is the perfect time to locate your Advent calendar and the Advent wreath and candles too. It’s been tradition for me to give an Advent Calendar to each of my children and their families each year. This year I’m hoping they can find one of the ones that have been given over the years to mark down the days until Christmas. There have been many. I won’t be giving a new one this year but hope they use one of the old ones. The picture below is one I painted on a slate and is actually DS#2’s. It’s been in storage here at my house till he comes home to retrieve it. It’s too expensive to mail and too fragile.
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Laughter Is Timeless, Imagination Has No Age And Dreams Are Forever.
I have counted at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for 2 years and have now reached over 2000 gifts. On my way now to 3000. I'm not stopping, but will continue on counting. There is always, always something to be thankful for.
2231. for life, what an adventure !
2232. for cartoon characters like Mickey Mouse, it’s his birthday today
2233. for snow melt to sprinkle on our icy front steps
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
Please pray for God's protection of
our troops and HIS wisdom for their
Lord, hold our troops in
your loving hands.
Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the
selfless acts they perform for us
in our time of need. I ask this in the
name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
