Thanksgiving Thursday

"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."
~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Thanksgiving Thursday always makes me happy. As I sit here writing this post I am already decompressing and "taking a moment" to purposely "reflect". I have so much to soak in and say thank you for. Here are my five:

1.) Little Chick and my loving family.
2.) The ability to give Little Chick an amazing birthday party at a fun place with lots of friends and goodies!
3.) For the strength I continually feel to pick myself up when things seem difficult.
4.) For a cool summer breeze on a hot summer night.

5.) Thank you to all my beautiful bloggy friends who made the first two days of Mama's Little Nestwork so exciting and successful!

  1. I hope you have a wonderful night! I think the nestwork is such a great idea! I think this is going to be a lot of fun for you! I added both your buttons finally LOL, sorry I am a slacker. Myles got the same stomach bug Wyatt had so it has been a bit hectic around here.

  3. P.S. I'm trying to copy and paste the HTML code for the Nestwork button into a new "gadget" in blogger design mode, but I'm doing something wrong... I'm just not sure what! Hmmm.

  4. Hi Mama Hen! It's been an exciting week over at the Nestwork, such a great idea! Thanks for what you're doing over there! Thank you for wanting to feature me, I have a post brewing called "When Someone Believes in You" which is more like an overview post containing links to other pages on my blog. I hope that's what you mean by feature post, I've not written one before so please do tell me if there are any guidelines you want followed.

    I'm also joining in Thanksgiving Thursday!! Have a great evening!

  5. That is beautiful. I am SO THANKFUL that I found you and Mama's Little Nestwork. I think it is a FABULOUS idea and I am so happy to be a part of it. I needed to hear this right now. I'm a bit run down and beat. I haven't had a "break" in a while. My lil princess is my miracle. I'll tell you the story of how she came to be some day. I am so blessed to have her. She was very close to being a total impossibility. I'm so thankful for her. Have a great night...and tomorrow!! :) I'm happy to be here.

  12. Hi Mama Hen!! Thanks for the invite to Mama's Little Nestwork. It's a great way to meet new bloggers, I love it. Great work!
    Thanks for the Thankful Thursday post - with all the hustle and bustle going on in our lives it's easy to forget to take the time to sit and reflect on the things that mean the most to us and what we're truly thankful for.
    We're leaving on vacation today - so, I'm on a blogging hiatus until the 16th, but can't wait to post all about our adventures when we return.

    Take Care,

  13. Love #4. I feel that way after it rains, when the steam is rising from the ground and there is a cool breeze in the air. It's so refreshing and pure.

    I tried to grab the nestwork button and it didn't work for some reason...will try again!

  18. always such great posts that make me smile :) Thanks! Yes, the cool breeze on a hot day...there's nothing quite like it! We needed breeze at the teeball game yesterday-whew it was hot! and for your strength when things are difficult-such an important thing to be thankful for. I know I envy my mother's strength for all she's been through in her life, yet made me THE most important thing...that's amazing to me and I am thankful for HER strength-hopefully it passes on to me?! I'd like to think it has!

  19. I'm new to the momma bloggers club but I have to say I ♥ your blog! The love for your baby chick is simply beautiful and so evident. Your little girl looks so happy, as every child should be. I also wanted to ask about her puppy. What breed is it? It has such big expressive eyes, it's almost eery, LOL!
    P.S. I've become your follower and would love if you could visit my site also.
