Thankful

Each day offers us the gift of being a special occasion
if we can simply learn that as well as giving,
it is blessed to receive with grace and a grateful heart.

Next week we will celebrate Thanksgiving...next to Valentine's Day it is my favorite Holiday.
What could be better than getting together with family and friends to take a moment from life's fast pace to sit and eat and talk for hours and hours...
But it is more than the food...for me it is a time to think back over the year and relive the moments, people, and things that I am grateful- thankful- for.
I am thankful for:

  • My husband, Mark, who brings me such love, comfort, happiness, and a beautiful life!
  • My family, ever supportive, loving, and always there for me.
  • My little kitty, Issy, who brings me warmth in my heart, and giggles.
  • My students, who bring me happiness in their encouragement, creativity, support, and love.
  • My friends, who bring me laughter, love, companionship, and the closeness of being family.
  • Little Frances, who brings me fortune in being a part of her sweet life.
  • My nutritionist, who has helped in restoring my health.
  • My dollmaking- no explanation needed!

All in all I am a very lucky woman who has been
blessed with a wonderful and very fortunate life...
May your Thanksgiving be bountiful
with all the good things in your life!
