Focusing on Life - Week 48: Giving Thanks!

This is week 48 for the Focusing on Life: 52 Photos weekly photography challenge and our prompt from Sally over at
 
 
 
Giving Thanks!
 
What are you thankful for?
 
 
I do know that I am thankful for this journey through life that Sally has 'prompted' us to take this year and I'm so very thankful for all of you.
 
Every one's been saying how they're sad this photo challenge is coming to a close and they are hoping Sally (or someone) will keep things going on some level or in some capacity.  I'm hopeful of that too, and would take on that challenge if my life didn't seem to be headed in what I believe to be a totally different direction next year.

 
Right now I'm thankful for hot tea, soft blankets, the warm fire and the festive way the cabin is decorated by my sister for Thanksgiving!

 
I'm thankful for the various stringed instruments that have been played by my nephew, my brother-in-law and my son and the joy I get from hearing their music!
 
I'm thankful my hubby's restocking the wood pile and keeping the fires lit! 
 
I'm thankful I have a good, loving and fun family!

I guess most of all, I'm thankful for the life I have been blessed with and for those in it.  
 
Until Next Time,
 
Peace, Love and Giving Thanks!
 
Cheers,
~Shel~
