My Thanksgiving Things


Most everyone my age (in their 60s!) has probably watched "The Sound of Music," at least once. My favorite song from the soundtrack is "My Favorite Things." If I were to personalize the song's lyrics, it would go like this:

Cream cheese on bagels that’s toasted and crispy, Puddings and pastries, and Fridays with movies,

Four men at home having dinner with me,

These are a few of my favorite things.

Blogging the whole day when I’m on a roll,

Phone chimes and guests call and gentle rainfall,

Bills paid on time and there's a roof o'er our heads,

These are a few of my favorite things.

Baking and cooking and eating out too,

Kisses and big hugs for me and for you, Knowing that Jesus resides in my heart,

These are a few of my favorite things.

When my dish burns, when my cake flops,

When I’m getting tired, I simply remember my favorite things,

And then I just get inspired!

What are your favorite things?

My name's Anna Maria! I publish a new blog post every Monday and Friday, two of my favorite days! If you want to learn more about my journey, my book "Touched by Grace: The Journey" will be released this winter through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Mother's Day Regrets

When I was young, Mom often shared her stories. More often than not, if I already knew her story, I told her that I had already heard it. Years later, she'd ask me before she told me a story, "Have I
