Counting my blessings, one by one, at Bunny Cottage...

My handsome son, Jeremy, a gifted musician, and sweet Grace, my dancer extraordinaire...
my sweet, Jake, with a heart full of love and concern for others. . .


my sweet, Luke, in his kindergarten picture. . . he is my "superhero" guy who loves Iron Man, Superman, Spiderman and anything to do with all of these superheroes. . .


Beautiful Grace again and my lovely daughter-in-law, Lindy, who does an excellent job of teaching our young people in school. . .


My beautiful Ally, who loves to "perform" and is my little actress who is never without friends close by. . .




My fun-loving Maggie Zane, named after me. She loves to laugh and loves life like me, too.





My darling, Henna Rose, who melts my heart when she says, "I love you, Gee!"






My handsome son, Aaron, who recently received his law degree and is a terrific lawyer and my lovely daughter-in-law, Corinna, who is a wonderful hair stylist.







And I could not forget, Baby Olivia, our sweetheart who is on the way and will make her debut in February. . .








My beloved sister and best friend, Myra, and my darling niece, Robin. They are my "partners in crime" and we can spend many hours a day just laughing and having a good time!!!

And last but certainly not least, I am counting each of you my friends, who make my life so much richer with your creativity and encouragement and love for life, yes, each of you are a blessing to me... I can hear my momma singing that old hymn, "Count Your Many Blessings" as she lovingly worked around our home taking care of us. I dedicate this post to her and my wonderful daddy. They truly taught me the meaning of a "thankful heart". I will forever be thankful for them. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!!
