Photohunt Saturday - Thankful


These hands are those of the two most important people in my life; my Mother and my best friend. I am beyond thankful for them both. They love me and support me and care for me with their loving hands!



I don't mean to be flip, but I am a true chocoholic. I prefer dark chocolate, but I 'll take it anyway it comes. I am thankful that I am able to enjoy chocolate!

This is one my favorites so far for 2 reasons. I love the tribute to your mom. you are very blessed to have her. I miss mine very much.

The photos are both great. And I don't you are being flippant about the chocolate at all.

I was so desperate for a fix yesterday, and too far away from town, that I poured a table spoon of Hershey's syrup and ate it.

My husband thought that was very funny when I told him over the phone.

Wonderful things to be thankful for. Thanks for sharing with us.

I love that particular brand of chocolate (too)! A weird quirk of mine though is that I don't usually eat chocolate unless the weather is cool... which it currently is, for which I'm thankful! ;)
