Feeling Thankful

Today especially I am feeling thankful. I have so many reasons to feel blessed and loved and supported. I am so grateful for the love of my family and friends as well as the health of my family.
I want to thank all those in the healing profession for their dedication to their jobs, for their caring natures and how well they see to others needs.

I am also thankful for my wonderful husband, he takes such good care of his family.
I am thankful for my children, for their inner beauty, their good natures, and their balance.
I am thankful for my new grandchild and his mother and father's dedication to their family.
I am thankful for my sisters and brother, for their love and friendship and courage.
I am thankful for my dear friend, for joyous times spent together.
I am thankful for all the wonderful friends I have met along my path, those I have met and spent time with and those I have met here on the net.
I am thankful for this venue where I have met so many special people.
I am thankful for the many opportunities of life that show up each and every day.
I am thankful that each day is a new opportunity to learn, grow, love and enjoy!


On a sillier note, I am thankful I am finished with my curtains and all that is left is to enjoy them!
I used unbleached muslin, made a thick ruffle for the edges and then used raw edged strips to create 24 roses which I attached to sashes for tie backs. I am pleased with how they came out.


My art room is feeling very cozy now. It has been cold and drab outside. But, mother nature has been showing off in a very special way outside my art room window. That tree that you can see in the photo is bare, except that on and off during each day, Cardinals come to perch in it. One by one they lite on a branch, spaced out as if they were all in agreement. There has been upward of 20 birds there at one time. It looks like they are ornamenting the tree! So gorgeous and so inspiring! I am thankful for them as well.

I am working on more jewelry that I will show soon, as well as a new little video.
Thank you for coming by for a visit, I do so appreciate you!

Hello Terri,
let me start by saying that it's good to see you're such a warm hearted person. You're absolutely right, there's so much to be thankful for, just as long as you keep trying to see it.
Thanks for your shoe tutorial, I simply love it, it's indeed different than mine (I did mine last summer but it took some time to be published :-)
I've taken the liberty of copying your template as well, I will make one of your shoes with tons of pleasure I'm sure. Thanks also for having a peek at my blog and I really hope that I'll qualify as a member for the MAMA group.
Take care, Ira
