GRATEFUL FOR EVERYTHING!


Hello ladies and welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 308! Have you  ever woke up in the morning knowing exactly what your plans were for the day, then God makes other plans?   That is exactly what happened to me this morning.  One minute I am eye balling the mountain of laundry  and the next, I am tell my son, he may lose this Grandfather and we have to meet the family at the hospital. It was one of those days today.  Thank God it had a happy ending.   It was only God who kept this man from dying.  He is 90 years old and already had a quadruple by-pass.  Either way the doctor said,  he probably would not make it.  Yet here I am able to post today with good news.  I don't know how people make it without God.   We had everyone praying this morning and God answered.   I am so grateful to God and the power of prayer!


I know today is all about tea cups and the pretty things that make us smile.  So I want to start with this beautiful Lefton Teapot.  I own the entire set, including the canisters.  It is so pretty.




This next beauty is a Nippon. It is all handprinted, very thin china,
 just amazing!



This next cup is so amazing.  I do not know where it was made, I don't recognized the symbol.  Love portrait cups.



Here is my father in law, this past Friday.  Kyle is in the blue sweat shirt on the right, the young man on the left is his other grandson, Chris.  My son is doing so well, and now so is his Grandfather! Thank you for all your prayers.
Here are the parties I will be following this week:


Teatime Tuesday - Tuesday Cuppa Tea - Friends Sharing Tea - Share Your Cup Thursday - Inspire Me Monday- No Place Like Home - Share Your Cup Thursday at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olsen - The Charm of a Home - Tea in Texas - Thelma's Days - Bella's Rosas Antiques - Friends Sharing Tea at Bernideen's Tea Time Blog

Looking forward to seeing all the pretty things you will be sharing today.  Feel free to post any lovelies you have!
Hugs, Martha

Grateful is such a powerful and important word. You have such a wonderful perspective on the important things in life. I am so glad your father in law is doing well.
I'm amazed you had time to host and share your beautiful teacups. The "lines" on your Lefton teacup make it so unique and special.
Take care, Nora

Two lovely tea cups Martha! Both so different, yet so special. Post a picture of the backstamp of the one and call it a "mystery backstamp" and see who can find out what it is first? Could be fun : )
I am so very happy for you and your family that your prayers have been answered. I am so glad both Kyle and grandfather are doing so well. It is always so lovely to hear good news!
Hugs to you Martha,
Terri

Hello Martha, I am wondering if you are getting any of my e-mails? I hope you are well and that Kyle is still doing o.k. I am keeping you in my loving thoughts.

I have certainly missed you, Martha. I've had a busy, sometimes-difficult couple of years, so I haven't been around blogland much. Life has settled down and is very good, so I have decided to jump back into blogging. I'm glad to see you are still hostessing Teacup Tuesday.

I'm so glad your family is doing well. That's a really terrific photo of the guys.

Blessings on your day.

Love,
Patti
