Tuesday Tidbits #154 Blessings Upon Blessings

Gratitude and Thankfulness

Sedona, Arizona

“It is not Joy that makes us Grateful… it is Gratitude that makes us Joyful.” ~unknown

The Holidays, especially at Thanksgiving, gives many of us the time for us to Count our Blessings and to reflect on our Gratefulness and Thankfulness! Counting Our Blessings should occur each day as it makes our hearts swell with Joy!

We Count our Blessings Each Day

First and most Importantly, We are Thankful for Family and Friends! These relationships make us rich with invaluable love and much needed support and strength when we need it. Sweet Man and I know in our hearts what a wonderful and loving family we have. We both Count our Blessings each day for ALL of them. We also cherish our Chosen Family… our incredible friends! We are truly Blessed!

Blog Friends

Many of us have made special friendships here in the Blogosphere. Real and Virtual! I am thankful to have friendships with many of you and have met some of you as well. Thanks so much for the blogs you write and the beautiful photos you share! I appreciate all your hard work!

This photo of me looking at the incredible Arizona Landscape was taken by a Blogging Friend Ingrid from Live Laugh RV Four Peaks covered in snow was a spectacular sight! Teri from Images At T Dashfield was there as well. Such a fun day!

Two Paradises

We are Thankful Each and Every Day to be able to live in two beautiful Paradises! Our Winter Home and Summer Home are part of God’s Country. So Thankful for God’s beauty that surrounds us at each destination.

Our Beloved Desert!
Our Beloved Lake!


We enjoy taking our Jeep out on the trails and exploring new places in the desert or out on the country roads of Pennsylvania! Thankful for Sweet Man and the rides he takes us on!

This was one adventure that we need to do again! Such a beautiful canyon!


Now that we are beginning to enjoy Travel again… Going far and near is truly a Blessing!

We enjoyed seeing the famous Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany.
Snoqualmie Falls in Washington State
Tuscany, Italy


Gardening is in our Blood here at Two Trails One Road. We love gardening because we enjoy the Fruits of Our Labor! My Mother and my Grandmother gave me the love of gardening. Sweet Man enjoyed flowers and vegetable gardening from a young age. So together… we enjoy our Gardens… different as they may be.

We love our Cactus Blooms!
A Lupine that my Mom planted 50+ years ago still blooms in our Pennsylvania Gardens.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy your next adventures!
