Thankful Thursday


Plenty of room for everyone, but please get your foot out of my eye, if you don't mind. 
Quite the non-human crowd on Lake DeGray  :)


Today I am thankful for what appears to be a little cooperation from our leaders, but whether for the good or not is yet to be seen.  I'm thankful for my daughter who tries so hard to be there for everyone.  I'm thankful for last night's dream, which I realized this morning was not a dream, but a memory of a rainy afternoon with my mother.

So many, a bit crowded, and quite peaceful. I hope you have had a lovely Thursday up North, we have had a colder start, almost a real frost, on our Friday morning, hot coffee needed.

I love turtles, but that does look a bit crowded, even for turtles.

How special your dream was last night, Terri. Sometimes when I have dreams, I feel they are telling me something. It sounds like your daughter is wonderful.

Wishing you sweet November days coming up.

I love this scene. There is a similar group of turtles that I see, on my way to work, each morning. All lined up/piled up. Gotta get some sun! lol Thanks for linking up today and have a great weekend!

Look at all those turtles and how nice to see the lake near where I'm from. (of course it wasn't there when I was growing up! lol) Enjoy your week. It's nice to see you here today. Hugs, Diane

Cute! :-) They just wallow all over one another don't they?

Vee said...

I like sweet memories that work their way into dreams. Yours sounds special. I am in agreement with all on your gratitude list. 🙂

What a great thankful list. I'm so happy for you for the sweet dream/memory of your mother. There's such a void in our lives when our mothers pass from this earth. The scripture reference is perfect.

Oh, things do look a bit crowded on the lake today! Haha! Sweet things to be thankful for, but I'm not holding out too much hope on the cooperation part :( x Karen

That is quite a herd of turtles. Don't think I have ever seen so many in one place. Aren't those family dreams the best?

Turtles are so funny the way they line up like that....there’s this whole pond there and they all want to be on the same log!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

What a cool photo! Love all the turtles lined up, I don't think there is any room left for another one. lol! Have a nice weekend!

Henny Penny said...

This is so cute! Somebody needs to throw another log into the lake. :)

Kim Standard said...

Oh, my, and the little one said, roll over, roll over, and there was 20 on the log and the little one said roll over, roll over....(I did not actually count, but looks like more than 20 to me.)

Cute photo and caption. Holidays are especially hard when remembering loved ones who have gone on to Heaven. God bless you. xoxo
