  1. That's a cute doggy face.

  2. Yes, I want to hug this good dog!
    Thank you for these sentences of experiences and wisdom!

  3. Dropping by from Finding Heaven comments....this collage of quotes was priceless (pun intended) especially the one from Will Smith.
    Great read.

  4. great reminders - I don't have much now - but not a single penny of debt for which I'm truly grateful. Skip and I committed to no debt when we got married and stuck with it - no mortgage, no car payments - real freedom.
    Fun to see how many cultures/personalities view debt as a problem.

  5. My favorite:
    "Every day I get up and look through the Forbes list of the richest people in America. If I'm not there, I go to work." ~ Robert Orben ~
    Thank you for sharing.

    Dear Sandra, May I add Beth's name to the prayer list. She posted on her blog that she has been diagnosed with cancer and has asked for prayer.
    I was shocked to see a comment from one who said they are NOT a PRAYER. We need to pray for them, as well. I am a firm believer in the power of prayer.
    Thanks. Love, Mildred

  11. Karen, a sweet and cute doggy face.

    Dori, Sadie is such a sweet dog too.

    Jody, Will Smith's comment was wonderful and OH so true.

    LindaSue, debt is a huge problem for so many people.

    EvalinaMarie, that one brought a smile to me as well.

    Mildred, I'm enjoying every day, even those I don't want to enjoy.

    Nancy, wise words are always welcome.

    Lea, you and me both.

    Vic, love Dave Ramsey and the dog is Sadie, my Ridge.

    Mildred, putting Beth's name on the prayer list.


Thank you for visiting Thistle Cove Farm; may God bless you, yours and the work of your hands and heart. My goal is to respond, here, to your comments although it may take a while.
