Giving Thanks

My life is no where close to perfect but I have a lot to be truly grateful for.

I am thankful for my family, for the most part we are all healthy and happy. My boys are my world and they make me so proud everyday.
I am thankful for where I live, on a planet that is filled with all sorts of natural disasters, poverty and injustice. I live in a oasis, I am ever grateful that my family has a safe place to grow and to be nurtured.
I am thankful for my friends, the special people who make my life so much more enjoyable, who lift me up, make me laugh and are there when I need to cry or rant.

I am thankful for my ability to create, to be given this gift to share and as a form of expression. It has brought me so much joy and allowed me to meet so many wonderful friends.

There is a list a mile long of the little things that I am grateful for I could go on, but it is these four that I constantly say thank you for and pray that these blessing remain strong and present in my life.

This week I spent a little time saying Thank you to some of you too. Over the last two years there have been several people who have continually supported me here on this blog, they have left comments on almost every post and taken time out of there day to connect with me. To show my appreciation, I have sent these little guys out in the mail. Just a little something to say you have made a difference in my daily life, THANKS!! 

Thank you all of you for the wonderful things that you do, your words can really make a difference in somebodies day.
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving
Be Thankful!
