I am posting because, I like to and it makes me rest. I have to sit and think only of what I am writing. I am a horrible writer, unlike my husband who can make anything sound wonderful. I get to remember my friends and it makes me happy.

Are you ready for tomorrow, I am not? It's going to happen ready or not! So I am going to practice being Mary and just go with it! I encourage you to do the same. I have some new Christmas pictures to show you. I am trying real hard to make it Noah ready! Noah is a Disneyland today with his parents. I can't wait to see the picture.

A surprise came today in the mail for me, from my dear friend, Bunny. It was her birthday and I got a present. Those are the kind of friends to have! Bunny said she was shopping and this ornament just said Martha all over it. It is the very last picture on this post. A beautiful, pink, Victorian ornament arrived and just put a big smile on my face. It is so nice to know that someone can be so kind, for no apparent reason. I have been needing a lot of extra love lately, so perfect timing!

I want to wish all my dear friends, a most precious Thanksgiving Day. May God richly bless you this holiday season!

Hi Martha,

I know exactly what you are saying. My kids said to me the other day - you seem to be blogging all day. I do need to do something else too.
I have come to wish you all the best for Friday and my prayers are with you.
Thanks for visiting me and your kind words.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Hi Martha! Love all your pictures today. I too enjoy blogging while I "rest"! You are very deserving of that beautiful ornament!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Big Hugs,

These pictures are absolutely gorgeous. I think if you start getting presents out of the blue, it means you deserve them, if you have friends who give you a present when they have their birthday, it means you are a good friend too !

Dear Martha, I find blogging to be very relaxing, too. What a lovely gift from your friend - it puts on smile on one's face when we know we are being thought of.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

I am usually cooking up a storm for two days for Thanksgiving, but this is the first year that we aren't getting together with friends. It was just us at home, which is fine with me. A drizzly, cloudy day so nice to stay home and just be! I like days like that. Your decorating is coming along. How sweet of Bunny to send you such a wonderful, beautiful ornament. It's so pretty! Have a fabulous day and wonderful holiay weekend. Blessings, :) Tammy

Your home looks so warm and cozy..maybe someday we will all meet for tea..have a wonderful Thanksgiving..after a whole month of rain,here in vancouver,the sun is trying to peek thru..take care..

Tara said...

Your ornament is beautiful! I don't feel so bad knowing it's taking you a while to get all your decorating done. I've had boxes in the house for 5 days with Christmas stuff waiting to be put out. I suspect they will stay out for a few more days! Have a very Happy Thanksgiving Martha and I hope the holiday brings you some much needed peace and joy!

You're here for the same reasons we ALL blog ... because we NEED breaks and diversions in the busy-ness of life, right? Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Happy Pink Saturday even though I got here a bit early. Love those pink dishes ;-)

I am so very much like you-- I find it restful and also keeps me looking at my life in a wee different way. A way that i want to capture and share. Besides-- what is a wonderful picture if it sits in your camera UNSHARED?

TTFN~~ Claudia ♥ ♥
