Photo Challenge: GRATEFUL

I am still eating leftovers so this prompt still feels appropriate. Not, of course, that we shouldn't be feeling the gratitude every day but with Thanksgiving in the rear view...well, you know.

So, please show the love for these great pics and please scroll down for the new prompt. I know everyone is really busy, especially during this season, so be assured that I appreciate you spending time on this.

2011 March 029  remembrance
Welcome back to Our kcinnova! She says that this shot speaks of remembrance. Times of remembering are, for me, always simultaneously times of gratitude, even when I really have to search for it.

Our Lisa never seems to take the gorgeous scenery in her neck of the woods for granted. I want to learn that from her.

I am grateful that Our Bethany threw in a photo that takes me back to warmer, sunnier days. I'm assembling this post while watching snow fall!

I am so behind in showing pictures of our trip to Italy. I am so glad we did it and I had such a wonderful time. I wish we could do it again!

Turkey Day Greeting 2
Our Erika offered two pictures of her boys with their cub scout pack greeting soldiers returning home for Thanksgiving. I'm sure you can imagine how hard it was to pick just one of them. I did it, but it hurt me.

Last but certainly not least, Our Janet announced earlier this week that she's reached the point in her cancer treatment where she can graduate to check ups every six months instead of more frequently. In honor of that she gave us this photo of some of the technology that prolonged her life. I, for one, am so grateful that she's still here.

This one just came to me. The next prompt is JINGLE (dirty!). Take that as you will.

Please enter by 9am Tuesday December 11th for posting on December 12th. Tag your photos with PHOTO CHALLENGE and JINGLE. Check out the wonderful work in our Flickr Pool for inspiration. Also, let me know if you have questions.
