I'm thankful for…
Fall in Tennessee. And pumpkins!
The colors of the changing leaves...
The last roses of fall. That smell divine!
The savory scents of simmering spices, especially with my family at home with me (love it when everyone is home) Recipe for simmering spices here!
I'm thankful for the Rust-oleum paint I used to spray paint a bright shiny brass glass cart that belonged to Mom. I've always loved that cart but am not a huge fan of the shiny brass anymore. So…I painted it! Here it is in the dining room…
I love having things that belonged to Mom, then sometimes painting them and making them my own. And yet, still "Mom."
Dessert at Mere Bulles last night (warm Carrot Cake and some decadent Chocolate Cake)
Having dinner at Mere Bulles with Thomas Nelson and Zondervan friends, now officially Harper Collins Christian Publishing Division since the merger (LtoR: Katie Bond, Becky Philpott, Daisy Hutton, moi, and Sue Brower) Delicious meal and such fun visiting!
I'm thankful that To Whisper Her Name releases today, and that the months and months and months of writing and rewriting are done. At least for now. Oh, how wonderful to finally share this book with you all. I've fallen in love with the people and setting of Belle Meade Plantation and hope you will too.
I'm also so thankful for my family and friends, for God's ever faithful nature, for the powerful name of Christ to save, and in the mysterious but welcome workings of the Holy Spirit.
So tell me, what are three things you're thankful for today?
