  2. Happy Thanksgiving Beth Ann to you and yours!

  3. Feeling Beachie - Hilary says:

    I am very thankful to have you as a friend!

  4. Backatcha!

  5. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Chris and your boys, Beth Ann! I’m thankful for blogging buddies like you! Question–you drink coffee in the morning instead of tea? I always pictured you as a tea drinker–though certainly these two things aren’t mutually exclusive.

    Hugs from Ecuador,

  6. I’m thankful to live in a country where we have the freedom to worship who and how we want. I’m also thankful for all of the blog comments this month to support my mission trip! Thank you all! Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. I am so thankful for my wonderful family and and knowing God is always with me.

  8. This is a great thankfulness prompt. I am thankful for so much, including your friendship.

    A blessed Thanksgiving to you, Chris, Aaron and Micah!

  9. #15? Wow, you must be patient! And a quick learner. This prompt is a great idea.

  10. Miranda Gargasz says:

    May the best of Thanksgivings find its way to you! I’m thankful for supportive people in my life, and on that list is Beth Ann Chiles. πŸ˜‰

  11. A lovely list indeed. May your day be filled with thanks-giving.

  12. Happy Thanksgiving, Beth Ann. So glad Katybeth “introduced” us — I love connecting with like-minded people, and I’m impressed at your list. We share a lot (#5, 10, and 13), but I don’t do coffee. Ever. I used to, when I was little and doused it in sugar and milk to feel like a grownup, but now it’s tea, all the way.

  13. That is a great list! I am right there with ya on the morning cup of coffee– when you answered the “gift you received” one I knew immediately how I would have answered: MY KEURIG! My boyfriend gave it to me for my birthday shortly after we started dating. I knew right then and there he was The One πŸ˜‰
    Happy Thanksgiving!

  14. Happy Thanksgiving Beth Ann. I am thankful for finding your blog as I enjoy hearing from you and others. I am thankful every moring when I walk outside and can look up to the heavens and thank the Lord for his many blessings.

    • Thank you so much for the sweet comment. Your thankful words are very true for me also. So thankful for each bright morning that promises more in store than I can imagine.

  15. A fabulous list. I have so much to be grateful for. Since I just spent some time with them I am feeling very thankful for my amazing grandchildren. Hope you had a wonderful day with your sons.

  16. Wishing you and yours all of the very best. I am thankful for you and people like you.

  17. #14 made me laugh. Enjoy your visit!

  18. On Thanksgiving, I was grateful for the feeling of contentment. My cup runith over. β™₯

  19. I am thankful this week is finally over. I was given some new antibiotics to which I had a reaction which made my breathing even worse, so I was given a new puffer which caused me to vibrate from the inside out and feel like someone had stuck a bottle brush down my throat in an attempt to scrub out my lungs. The side effects of both are finally diminishing & I’m starting to feel more like myself again.

I love your comments--each one makes me smile and makes a difference for Comments for a Cause! Thanks!
