I wish all of my friends and family the Blessings of Thanksgiving.
Take time to say a prayer of thanks to God, for the blessings that enrich your lives.
Give lots of hugs and kisses!
Take time to say a prayer of thanks for the young men and women serving our nation in the USA and abroad.
I am so grateful for all that God provides for me on a daily basis. I am lucky to have a wonderful, loving husband; kind and thoughtful children; the cutest grandson in the world and an army of friends in my life.
Thank you for listening to me ramble on. Thank you for sharing your talent. Thank you for your words of support. Thank you for loving me.

I love padded envelopes! I love opening my mailbox and seeing that manilla color in between the bills (ugh!) and the countless catalogs coming my way these days. This past week brought 4 padded envelopes my way.
In the first envelope was a treasure trove of paper crafting supplies from my sweet friend Elizabeth of Creative Breathing. Leftover bits and bob, papers, ribbons and the cutest photographs of vintage Christma cards! I will have fun playing with all that she sent. Thanks Elizabeth! Where did you find that tiny pink ball fringe!!!! It's the cutest!
The first items are paper strips with beautiful printed words on them. One set says "Thankful for...." and the second set has the words to "O Holy Night". You link the strips together to make a long chain. The Thanksving set is going with us to Thanksgiving dinner so everyone can write what they're thankful for. Then the chains can be brought out again next year to review. They are from Ormolu.Amber Alexander. She sells prints and cards of her wonderful and whimsical animal themed art. Last year I bought David a print of a squirrel in an apron (in honor of our resident visitor Edith Ann). When I saw these cards, I knew I had to get some. Edith....skating!!!!!! Who knew!
