Things I am thankful for

First of all, I want to say sorry to anyone still reading my blog. I have not posted anything in ages. I'm not blaming anyone, except maybe Farmville and Yoville on Facebook:P

I know I've promised paraguayan recipes, but I wanted to post on something else today: things I am thankful for.

My family, first of all. My three girls and my wonderful husband. My three sisters and my Mom and Dad!

My friends, some living in my village, some close, some far, some new, and some old.

My home, food on the table, grapefruits on the trees, a fresh haircut (I can see, without having to lift up my bangs!), green grass growing in front of my home, good walking shoes, an mp3 player filled with country music, a working sewing machine, a new printer, a cold terere, maybe some chocolate....

Whenever I started "schlimming" (nagging or being ungrateful)about my life, please remind me of this list! We have so much to thank our Lord for, and all we sometimes do is want more.

I finally got around to going on a walk yesterday, and the sunset was awesome:

P.S. Cindy does not have the swine flu in this picture. It was taken at a field trip to the hospital, where we all had to wear a facemask.


  1. awww what a sweet post honey! I love it =) it's wonderful to be thankful for the things we have & you have such wonderful things to be thankful for!! lovely pix

  2. Great post, Brenda. It's so true that we need to get perspective sometimes...and being thankful is just the way to do it! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Ahhh...grapefruits on the trees!? I'd love to live somewhere that I could have citrus trees! It's a bit cold in Oregon for them!

    Hope you have a great week! I'm out leaving comments for all my followers!
