Giving Thanks: Apples

I guess it might sound funny to say this - but I am thankful for apples! Not only are they tasty, I find them a simple pleasure. They are pretty, smell great and are full of homey appeal! I like what they represent - wholesome and pure. They are an amazing part of God's creation and so versatile!

Anyone want to share and "A" thing they are thankful for?

America--that I live in a place called America, the symbol of freedom

Our 18mo baby is named Alexander, so I would definitely have to say he's my "A" on the thankful list. He's Baby #6, but we couldn't imagine life without him. Years ago, I would've NEVER imagined I'd have six children--EVER! LOL But Alexander is sunshine, happiness, joy, hugs, sloppy kisses, and laughter all rolled into one little package, and we thank the Lord for him!
This is fun...thanks for sharing!

Autumn. I am thankful for Autumn with all it's beauty. The chill in the air, cozy sweaters, and snuggles under a blanket.
Blessings,
Liisa

That's so funny that you say you are thankful for Apples because I feel the same way. When David & I go apple picking, I always talk about how excited it makes me to see the orchard with trees full of apples. On the way home I keep sticking my face in the baskets to smell the apples and say hhmmmmmmmm don't they smell wonderful. I love apples.

I am thankful for Autumn (although I usually say 'Fall" - I already have an F). This is undoubtedly my favorite time of year!

I'm thankful for Andrew and Alexander, two of my five little grandsons.
Autumn (although DH says no one uses that word any more), acres, that my house sits on, apple pie that smells wonderful baking in the oven, altitude that I live in, in beautiful Colorado
