Thankfulness

I have seen a lot of thankfulness posting on Facebook.  I am just not disciplined enough to come up with something different to be thankful for each day.  I figured I could do it all at once.

Wow! I could have written most of those! I'd have to add to #21 though-flannel sheets:) I have 13 children and 9 grand babies and also homeschool!
