Happy Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time to reflect on people and events you are grateful for, but this year, with so much bad news you would think that I have very little to be thankful for. Let me tell you, I have MUCH to be thankful for in fact, my list is almost endless. I am sure if you take the time today to stop and reflect you too will have much to be thankful for.

I am MOST thankful for having such a wonderfully, intelligent, talented, supportive daughter and SIL without them the last couple of months I may have fallen hard but with their love and support they wouldn't let me.

I am MOST grateful for all the LOVE and Support of all my stamping, embossing and blog friends who have helped Kathy and myself to get through some of our most difficult times and those that hung in there with us and continue to as we struggle to move on.

For support of my family and for giving me the space I need but knowing they are there if I need them.

I am thankful for having a job in these tough economic times.

I am grateful for each new day. It brings new hope and new challenges with things to be learned. I love challenges!

I am thankful for the person who invented coffee. I would be non-existent without it.(Wink)

I am thankful for having a memory to remind me of all the "NO SHOWS" or "I'll Call You Back" people. (BIG GRIN)
I am thankful for my endless stock of supplies and paper without which I would not have been able to share this quick card I whipped up this morning.

I hope you too have much to be thankful for and enjoy this special time with your family and friends....and don't eat too much...

Hi Nettie,

Sorry I couldn't check your card out sooner with the in-laws in town. You "just whipped" THIS up?!! MAJOR talent lady!

I too am grateful for many things, including wonderful stamping friends who provide company, comfort and inspiration... like you.
