This is my first link up with Royal Daughters Designs, so Amanda if it is not quiet right…..let me know.
I was looking on Pinterest – wow – shocker I know, and I came across  this.
What If You Woke Up Today Art Print Inspirational Quote 8x10 Wall Art
It is actually from an Etsy shop Walkingthefaith777.

This just screamed at me and I got to thinking, things, who, what? What did I thank God for yesterday? It brought tears to my eyes, I stopped right then and thanked God for many things, but these were the first 10. Now I find myself doing often.

1.       My Lord and Savior, if it weren’t for him….any and everything else would be pointless.
2.       My boys, daughter-in-laws and my grand angels.  Strange that I put them before my husband, but if you are a parent, you know – once you have kids, they trump your spouse…at least for me.
3.       Hubby – he is my BFF, he works hard, is an A+ hubby, dad, and Pops. He is and has always been a provider of love and happiness. He is healthy and I am blessed beyond words to have him.
4.       The rest of my family, immediate and extended. They are always there for me – in good and in bad.
5.       My health. For my age – I am reasonably health. I don’t take any meds for blood pressure or cholesterol – I am a little overweight – but working on that.
6.       My friends. Can’t ever have too many of those. They come and go – they change, but you always need them.
7.       My job. For obvious reasons. Unfortunately we have to have money to survive. I am blessed to have a job – that for the most – I love. I have been doing it for 24+ years.
8.       The roof over my head. We have what I feel is a very comfortable home. When my friends and family come over, I want them to feel they can put their feet on the couch, help themselves to the fridge, kick back, take control of the remote – whoops – maybe not that. I want and feel I have a warm and welcoming home.
9.    My furbabies. I love animals and especially love my dogs. They love you unconditionally. All you have to do is speak their name and they start wagging those tails. I think they bring joy and happiness. Studies have been done that show kids that have animals, dogs especially, do better in school and social skills. For the elder, they can prolong their life.
10.   And last, but surely, surely not least, if you are reading my blog, know that I am thankful for you.

What have you thanked God for today??


To me being a Texan means talking with a southern twang.

It means Sunday morning spent in a church pew, then Sunday afternoons spent having lunch with family.

It’s bird huntin first weekend in September.
It's bow hunting in October,
and rifle hunting in November and December.

It's days spent at the county fairs in the fall.

It's Friday Night Lights.

It's tailgatin Saturdays.

It's cattle, horses and cowdogs.

It's the State Fair in October, and the Houston Livestock Show in March.

It's Warrenton twice a year, and Canton every first Monday.
It’s playin sports (football) as soon as your old enough to walk

It's FFA all through high school, and 4H as soon as you're old enough to show.

It's Blue Bell ice cream and Dr. Pepper.
It’s grandmas peach cobbler
It’s boots, all year long

It's rattlesnakes and armadillos.

It's George Strait, Miranda Lambert, and Willie Nelson.

It's small towns where everyone knows everyone else.

It's honkytonks and dancehalls.

It's Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes.

It's rodeos and barbecue.

It's families and friends.

Being a Texan means everything to me. And sure, maybe not everyone one sees it this way, but I do. This is my Texas. And I have to say, my Texas is pretty great.

Linking up today...and it is hard to believe it is MONDAY already! Geezz...I say let's have a 2 day work week and a 5 day weekend...but, still make the same $$

My weekend was not too exciting. Hubby worked and so I pretty much just hung out at the house with my "girls"
There are 3 of them....Sam (Samantha) on the left - she is the same color as the couch. Cappy, my "little" girl and Solo....she is a brown. This is pretty much what they do in the house. It's a tough life, but somebody has to sleep...

Friday night, hubby was off so we went out to dinner. We decided to try a new place in the town of Weatherford. I won't mention any names, because we left before we were seated. We both felt a weird vibe the minute we walked in. We were asked to wait at the bar - while she seated her 7pm reservations. (there was not one person "waiting".) we sat down at the bar. Very uncomfortable, very ...I can't describe it. So we decided to look at the menu...OMG.....are you getting me? I thought I would die....the dinner prices were something you would expect to pay at a VERY HIGH DOLLAR restaurant...not this place... WE LEFT. Then we looked across the square and noticed that the WEATHERFORD DOWNTOWN CAFE was open.
Been here for years, and under new ownership in the last year. So we headed over there.....all I can say is YUMMY. Even tho they were busy (I am sure the other folks started out at the other place too) We were seated right away. The food was AWESOME, the staff fantastic, and the prices were incredible. We will be returning - FUR SURE!!

Saturday, was the usual. Laundry, house cleaning, watching TV( the idiot box as my daughter in law refers to it), playing Word With Friends, Pinterest and Etsy on the "puter"........

Saturday night we met up with the local chapter of the TEXAS EXES at a watching party for our Longhorns as they whooped up on OLE MISS 66-31.

Sunday was a lazy day for sure. The weather was cloudy - reasonably cool - for Texas. And then POW - it's MONDAY all over again

How was your weekend?
