Have had two great days. Yesterday I was thankful for planes, traveling mercies and gifts from a distance. Hubby arranged for my best friend, Dee to come here to Texas for a week to celebrate both of our birthdays. Dee’s is on 11/30 and mine is 12/1. And I think hubby knew a good dose of friend time would be fun for me. Dee left her home in Blaine yesterday morning at 7:15 a.m. and arrived safely in San Antonio at 8:55 p.m. (6:55 p.m. her time). After some great big hugs, picking up her luggage, getting the rental car and then stopping at Applebees for a late night dinner we got back to the park at 12:13 A.M. We gave each other another great big hug and headed off to our respectable beds.
Today has been another great day. Woke to a thunder & lightening storm at 5:09 a.m. and watched the glorious show that God put on for us. It was nice to hear the rain falling, not so nice to feel water spraying on my leg on the bed ~ hubby has to do some more caulking on the roof. Enjoyed fresh coffee made by my sweet hubby and then had a great day at work. Visited with Dee throughout the day then joined a group of Escapees at the local Mexican restaurant for dinner and then made our way to Dairy Queen for mini blizzards…just enough to taste good and not kill my trying to eat healthier goal. And then back to the park. Now for a little time on the computer and then heading to bed.
So thankful for a sweet and loving hubby, good friends to come for a visit and her sweet hubby encouraging her to take a little vacation and the warm welcome the members of Lone Star Corral are giving Dee.
Hope you are all having a good day. Talk to you again tomorrow night.

Well, I'm guessing that you don't want a tree for your birthday! I hope you get some sunshine for your birthday tomorrow! That would be a great present, wouldn't it?My preference is bow ON, but really, I'm not trying to make more work for you. ;)I hope those dollar store gloves are not your birthday present, either, but if they are, at least they are pretty and keep your hands warm!Have a great birthday tomorrow, Ali, and enjoy spending it with Ron!
Happy Birthday Ali!!!! I hope today you stay warm…that you sell some trees…that you enjoy some children smiles and of course eat some dessert!!Hugs CindyPS the wreath with the bow catchs my eye!
Oh, although the day was a bit dreary it seems that you guys have the right outlook on things. I just came across your site and will surely be posting it to my own blog to follow along. We too are currently living day to day on God's Grace with plans of going full time although we have to sale our home first. Thank you for the lovely post of encouragement!Cyndi Budhihttp://travelswithbudhiandcyndi.blogspot.com/
Happy Birthday!!!!What you need to do is go to the dollar store and get an extra large pair (or more than one pair) of dishwashing gloves. Put your fleece gloves on, then put the rubber gloves over them. They will keep your hands from getting wet and the rubber will help hold the heat in. FWIW: I like the plain wreath better. Love you and hope you are having a tremendously wonderful day!dee
Lovely trees! I prefer without bow, looks more natural and fresh.And happy birthday! (one day to late) I hope you had a truly good one :-)Take care,Alexandra
That's lots to be thankful for, Ali! I'm relieved to hear that your beds were respectable. 😉
