There's only 66 more days 'til Christmas!

Ben & Jerry's!


God gave us  gift of 86,400 seconds today. 
Have you used one to say "thank you?"

Thank you for visiting today and thank you so much for your support over the last week. Thanks also to my new friends (I hate saying "Followers"!). I so appreciate you all.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today!

Best wishes,
Natasha In Oz 


  1. I've been thinking about being thankful today too (as I posted about Canadian Thanksgiving) and loved reading this. Great post!


  2. I try to be thankful every day, so easy to get caught up and put it on the back burner. You have a lovely family - your daughter looks just like you!! xo

  3. These are wonderful! Your family is beautiful and it is so important to give thanks every day. :) I can't believe Christmas is that close!!

  4. You have a lovely family and such a great attitude.

  5. Wow, 66 days till Christmas!! I love Spring as well, although the weather has been a bit strange lately. The quote at the end is such a great reminder of the importance to be thankful. (Gorgeous family too!)

  6. Nice post.
    You have a gorgeous family.

  7. Right! That's it, I'm off to make a cup of tea!

  8. Thanks for a great five minutes of my day. Especially liked the lovely family picture. I am so thankful today that a dear friend will be getting married next month.

  9. Thanks for that little reminder to stop for 5 minutes and be thankful. I have now made myself a cuppa after you first image, just a pity that I can't get my hands on some Ben and Jerrys!

  10. I love your family picture. What a nice looking bunch!! Your son looks like you and your daughter looks like your hubby. Enjoy your week.

  11. We have a 'count your blessings' noticeboard in our home and we all write things on it that we are thankful for. It always makes me happy to read it. And I am thankful that you are my bloggy friend too! God bless x

  12. When I don't know what to do or how to deal with something - I make a cup of tea so I can stop, think, and get myself through it. Although on a Friday afternoon - a champers seems to help!
    Cheers Kylie

  13. Oh strawberry cheesecake icecream... WOW! Yummo!
    I love hydrangeas, so pretty. Gorgeous variety of colours too.
    Beautiful family photo Natasha. My, your little ones look like you :o) xo

  14. Only 66 days left??? I am so behind this year! Love this post!

  15. Bonjour Natasha,

  18. Thank you!!! and I truly mean it. THANK YOU!!! You are such an inspiration! I try really hard every day to remember and show gratitude for all that I am given - but yesterday was one of those "pity" days where I was feeling I had nothing... When I woke this morning, I decided I needed to think about my THANKFUL things list, the blessings that I have every day (one being that I can get up by myself and walk from my bed, unlike my hubby some days... and I should be thankful because I can do that so that I can help him get out of bed...) I need to ACT upon my THANKFUL thoughts more frequently! So, thank you for reminding me - I'm going to do just that.... BLESS YOU!

  19. The first thing I do when I wake each morning is thank God for the day.

    Thank you for sharing your joy.♥

  20. I am thankful everyday, especially to have my health and my beautiful family. Mimi xx
