THANKSGIVING



Happy thanksgiving to all my blogger friends! I thought I'd post a list of things that I'm thankful for. Its good for all of us to think about the blessings in our lives and so easy for us to take them for granted. I do try to remember to be thankful fairly often as I'm reminded pretty much on a daily basis, that I do have a wonderful life !
I am thankful for:
my husband and my kids!
my home and the sweet community we live in
my pets and all the wonderful awesome animals that God created!
I'm thankful for heat and water and food!
sugar! tea! cinnamon! and bread!
music! all kinds of music.. Christmas music!
musicals!
I'm thankful for art.. and creativity and talent.. that is all around us.
I'm thankful for the 4 seasons.. I'm thankful that snow is pretty.. and that the cold makes me appreciate my cozy little house!
I'm thankful for my car! and my job!! and the people I work with.. even those I'm not so fond of.. because they make the people I am fond of that much more special!! Im thankful for my friends.. a huge blessing because I have so many wonderful and close friends!
I'm thankful that we were able to raise our children in this area...and never worried about their safety in school! I'm thankful that my kids are all healthy and well. and beautiful! and that they are close and they like to spend time with each other.
I'm thankful for america and freedom...
I'm thankful for god and his son!
I'm thankful for ice cream
I'm thankful for craft and fabric stores.

for the moon and stars.. for scientists .
for soldiers..
for my health.. for the ability to get up and go to work everyday and to be able to do the things I want to do.
I'm thankful for this artful blogging community!

You are so sweet to stop by and always say Hi....
Enjoy your special day, and keep on making those sweet adorable bears....one more reason to be thankful for YOU!!!
