Thankful Five

                                         The air is cooler, the sky is darker... winter must be on it's way. 

I was just thinking of how much I have to be thankful for so I want to join in Thankful Thursday today and share with you some of my thankfulness. And, also Tanya's Willy Nilly Friday

1. First of all I am thankful for the man I was married to for 60 years. We had some bumps in the road, but who doesn't? It was a wonderful 60 years. This coming Sunday, if he had lived, we would be celebrating anniversary #67. 

2. I am thankful for my sister. She's 92. Doesn't she look great? 

3. My Mom, what can I say, she was the sweetest, most gentle person I have ever known. I lost her in 
1996. So thankful for the years she was my Mom!

4. My kiddies. I am so thankful for them. This picture was taken ages ago.. 

5. and last but not least, since I am concentrating on the people in my life that I am most thankful for. 
Leslie came along late in my life. We had five wonderful years together. 

Yep, I am feeling mighty thankful this morning. 


  1. Hello Latane, you have a lovely family. Beautiful photos old and new. We are all thankful for our families. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  2. I enjoyed seeing your family photos.
    Family should be at the top of everyone's Thankful List!
    Winter has arrived here in north Mississippi. Today's high forecast 47, tonight's low 24
    Have a wonderful day!

  3. You & your sister must have a very young looking gene as you both look wonderful & what a great family you have!

  4. What a sweet list, Mom! I'm happy to be included...we kids are so thankful for you!

  5. You do have so much to be thankful for. What would we do without our family? Have a blessed day- and a wonderful weekend!

  6. There’s always so much to be thankful for. You have known the love of two good men; your sister is beautiful and so are you; four great kids; a lovely place to live; friends, this good life itself. Thank you for sharing them all. It has reminded me to be grateful and to count my blessings instead of my complaints. Far more healthful!

  7. Sweet post and lovely pictures too. We all need to stop more often and be thankful.

  8. Latane, I love all of this. My husband and I are coming up on 30 years together and have had our own bumps in the road. I treasure your blog posts. Thank you for linking up and I hope you have a GREAT weekend!
