This Thanksgiving I'm greatful for answered prayers , Family , old and new Friends .

So many friends have been Blessed by healings , sweet babys born , Friends and Family members went home to be with the Lord . Many sweet and sad times . So greatful Our Lord was there with us through it all . We couldn't make it with out Him .

It seems so many things have happened this year and time seems to go so fast .

Is it just me or is time whizzing by . It was just New Years and now it almost Christmas .

Maybe it's just me after all I'll be 70 on Christmas day , wow who have thought . Some days I feel so old and slow , others I feel wow is it really that long since I was a little girl .

So you see I'm greatful for all the good years I've had . I almost didn't make it when I was born , Mom and I had a real rough time and here I am almost 70 years later .

When I was 4 my brother John Sanford was born on Thanksgiving . He only lived about 18 hours . Dad and Mom didn't want me to grow up alone and loved children so they took in foster children .

One of them lived with us longer then the rest and Dolly became a real part of our family , like a real sister to me . She passed on some time back and I miss her a lot . Her children and grand kids call me Aunt Mary and I love it .

God Bless You Friends , Family and every one that reads this . .
