Counting Blessings Instead of Sheep


It is getting late, and I should be heading off to my lovely bed. It is just that I have been thinking about Christmas, how close it is and how grateful I feel. Sometimes my heart feels full to bursting with the love I feel. I have so many reasons to be thankful! So I thought I would just make a list of all I am thankful for tonight...

I am thankful for my Wonderful Husband! He is my dear, dear soul!

I am very full of love and gratitude for my Children...they are the joy of my heart!

I am so lucky to have such loving friends, I am so thankful for everyone of them, those here with me and those I have never met but share so much with!

I am so grateful for my Husband's job, that he loves what he does and feels like he is doing something great.

I am so thankful for the health and wellbeing of My family, myself and my friends.

I am so grateful for our dear Home, that houses us so comfortably and is a place of peace and creativity.

I am so thankful for our country, it's people and our leaders. Many blessings to all!

I am so thankful for creativity and the ability to express through art.

I am so thankful for my own little room where I can go to create.

I so love my two little doggies! They are pure love and I am so thankful to have them with us!

I could go on and on, but for now, this is what I wanted to say from my heart.

Merry Christmas to you all, I am full of thanks for the internet, for blogging and for each and every one of you who come by and visit here. Many blessings to you and your's!

Hi Miss Terri, Thanks for the lovely comments and visit. I just adore your love for your family and hubby....and those cookies look so YUMMY! You know I am a fan of your work and I can't wait to see what else you come up with. You know I have been trying to join Paper Whimsey, but I cannot get in. Are they full?

Also, your cards are beautiful! Your family is going to love them!

BTW, I love your fairy slippers, is there a template? If so, is it available for sale?

Have a Blessed Christmas my friend, see you on the group...Becs

Dear Terri, Your Christmas tree and thoughts are so filled with holiday spirit! I am so glad you get to spend time with the whole family! I have enjoyed reading all your holiday posts seeing your ATC card and all your paper crafts they are amazing! I was happy to read your husband is making your art space nicer for you.
