Gratitude Mosaic Monday

It’s been a heart breaking week for so many and it’s hard to know what to post. I am keeping everyone that is suffering from the terrible storm in my prayers. We have powerful hurricanes hit Florida so we know how bad it can be. When I saw that my friend, Linda from AL A Carte was doing a gratitude post every day this month I knew that was the answer. I won’t be able to do one every day but I would like to do a few when I can.


(we saw this on the beach on one of our walks…this is for you, Linda)

We had the blessing of spending a few days on Jekyll Island on our way back to Florida.


I haven’t been on the computer for a few days so I’ll enjoy catching up with everyone these next few days. Oh and I might want to catch up on laundry, too while I blog! heehee!


I am grateful for all of my blog buddies, a few days on a fabulous island…and a washing machine! AND for a husband that brings me a rose from the flower bed when we get home.


I’m joining Mary for Mosaic Monday

and Diane for Beautiful Sunday

and Sunny Simple Sunday !

How are you doing this week?

You're a sweetie, Diane. Thanks for your prayers. We need them coming as there is a Nor'Easter due to hit on Wednesday into Thursday. We just get EVERY kind of crappy weather here, tropical, Nor'Easters, blizzards, heat and humidity, an occasional tornado. Time to relocate :/ xo

Probably by now you've learned that Mary has been without power all week (NJ) and won't be doing Mosaic Monday. It is incredible the number of people affected by this awful storm.

Lovely writing in the sand...


Oh goodness, so much people we know, that is affected by Sandy!! At least my family in NY and NJ have power...very scary! My prayers are with Mary of Mosaic Monday, I just found terrible! Many blessings to everybody on this new week ahead. Thank you for your sweet visit.
Big hugs,

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Thank you my sweet sister! I love the beach message. I am really loving my gratitude posts, it's so easy to forget just how blessed we are sometimes. I am praying for all hit by this horrible storm. Glad you are home, have a washing machine and sweet hubby who brings you a rose!

hugs, Linda

We pray for all the people in need and pain. Those suffering the loss of a loved one. The loss of their homes. The devastation of their towns. xo, Susie

glad you're home safe and sound, so much devastation all over the United States and Canada, very scary! We had a wee bit of damage here but nothing compared to southern ontario, or the U.S

It's me said...

Happy new week sorry for all that from

What a wonderful idea to do a gratitude post. All the devastation that Sandy brought is so sad. I pray for the the folks that where hit so hard. Lots of pretty photos here.

Love the message on the beach. We have a family tradition when we take the grandchildren on trips, we always write "Tulsa" in the sand and take photos of it to remind us of the trip.

Gratitude is something we all need more of.

So glad you are home safe and sound and had a glorious time. Love your Fall photo on the sidebar!!!

I love your beach photos and red rose, Diane.

Thank you for all your kind words of support for the Hurrican Sandy victims. I have been voluteering at a temporary shelter in Brooklyn for people that lost their homes. It is wonderful to see how many people are helping and donating goods that are needed.

Love the saying in the sand! Pretty rose from your hubby!
Been keeping those on the east coast in my prayers.

It has been a heartbreaking week seeing all the devastation and suffering brought on by hurricane Sandy. Having been without power for over a week due to a hurricane (or two) in the past, I can certainly empathize with them. My heart goes out to them all.

Nice rose! You sure do have a sweet hubby!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

An island getaway with your sweet hubby who brings roses to you from the are indeed blessed! Wonderful! Glad you are home safely.
