On Sunday after church we had family dinner at home.  There was no special occasion just all of us together enjoying each other. We had so much fun. I cooked, the girls cleaned and the men well you know, they sat. It was okay though, we just enjoyed each other.

I am so thankful for “family”. They are the joys of my world. Since Thanksgiving is coming up, here is your opportunity to win an “I’m cold! (I’m calling on the Lord!) tee-shirt. Just share with us what you as women of a certain age are thankful for at this time in your life.

I will announce the winner on the Thursday after Thanksgiving. If you are the winner and I do not have your email address, I will ask you to email me at: along with your size and mailing address.  Be thankful because “thisisyourbestyear”.

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.

  1. I am thankful for being 7 years cancer-free thus being alive to experience being a first-time grandmother. And also for my 95-year old mom still being alive (although in the last stages of Alzheimers). God is good and greatly to be praised, so I am truly thankful for His presence in my life.

    1. Hello Edwina,

      Congratulations, you are the winner of the “I’m coLd! tee-shirt. I could really relate to your post. My sister celebrated her 5th year of being cancer free this year. We thank God each day for this blessing.

      Please send me your tee-shirt size and your mailing address. I would also like a little information on you so that I can feature you in a blog.

      Again, congratulations. I look forward to hearing from you.



      1. Maricia, so sorry I’m just learning of my being named your Thanksgiving coLd winner. Thank you so much! If you will send me an email off-loop, I will provide you with the info you need. Thanks again.

  2. I am thankful for all that I have including family, friends, belongings, etc. There are so many with so much less that I feel it is unfair for me to complain. I am blessed.
