I finished "Thankful Sampler" by LK. I haven't finished into a flatfold hanging picture yet. I am just glad I got it done before Thanksgiving.
Which brings up a thought. Why do we wait until Thanksgiving to give thanks? I mean, I know most of us say prayers of thanks in one form or another everyday, but why do we wait until this one day to give thanks to each other?
I don't know that answer, but I do know I am thankful.
I am thankful I have a God who loves me no matter how I am. I am thankful I have a husband who loves me unconditionally and takes such good care of me and my family. He married into this ready made, crazy family. And he loves each one of us.
I am thankful my mother lives with me and I am thankful I am able to care for her. I am thankful for my daughter and son-in-law. She is so much help to me, esp. on this blog. She is talented in ways that I am not. I am thankful for the two little boys that are my grandsons. They give me such joy. Having all girls in the family, I could not imagine what it would be like to have boys. But it has been a fun ride.
I am thankful for my sister and her family.
I am thankful for my job, in which I get to make a difference in someone's life each day. I am thankful for working with the wonderful folks I work with. Carter BloodCare is a family. My boss even gave me away on my wedding day. I am thankful for the donors who come in each day and give a part of themselves and their time to help someone they don't know.
And I am thankful for all of you who read my blog and make comments. I have stitched more and enjoyed more of my stitching since I started blogging and joining Yahoo groups. I so enjoy looking at other's work and being amazed at how beautiful they are. I am thankful that this next year will bring more opportunities to see more work and share more of my work.
I pray each of you will have a wonderful Thanksgiving and will enjoy your friends and family this holiday. Thank you for sharing your lives with me.
