31 Days End But Thankfulness Begins!

 As our 31 Days come to a close, our days of being Thankful are just beginning. Today my bits and pieces of bats and carved pumpkins give way to turkeys and scarecrows and harvest angels. I found these lights that look like candles at a gift store and I knew that I had to have them. They are electric and filled with glorious light.
 This time of year is such a struggle to know what decorations to leave up...but today I am doing the obvious and being satisfied with it.
 Today I am thankful that I am spending time with my youngest as she studies for a test. We are together and happy and healthy. She hit the deer and could have been injured but instead we are together and chatting about nothing. I am thankful for the children and husband. May you find blessings in your day today!

Hi, and thanks for stopping by the "sunporch" :) and the comments.
I'm so glad the deer accident wasn't worse. I have a fear of one of them running out in front of me. Yes, family and friends is the only thing that really matters, and I'm so thankful for mine, too.
I love those candle/star lights.

Joy, the turkey is a wool wall hanging that I made a few years ago. I love the way it turned out. Dianntha

So glad your daughter was ok after hitting the deer. That alone is plenty to be thankful for!

Everything looks great in your decor! I don't really have much in the way of "Thanksgiving" decor. For me, it goes directly from harvest decor to Christmas and we start decorating for Christmas somewhere around the 4th of Nov, so that is really soon!

Hope you have a great day, Dianntha! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your comment!

Hugs and Blessings,
Tammy
