Thanksgiving Week...

There are many people struggling just to make ends meet, and many are finding that they can not even get them close. Some how we seem to have lost our focus on what is important...really important.

I am thankful every day for each and every blessing. We are not wealthy people...not in terms of money anyway. But we have an abundance of riches in so many ways and I try not to take any of them for granted. My family is not a large one but all are healthy and happy and we will be together this Thanksgiving. I'm sharing photos of my most important blessings.

Would you share a blessing or blessings with us? An itty bitty teacup will go to the name chosen by Mrs. Glosser's random number generator.
The number chosen for the cherub diffuser was Deborah of Pictures, Pots and Pens

My wish for you: Loved ones with you on Thanksgiving and many, many blessings to count.

Francie,

I feel blessed to have met you and all of the sweet, talented ladies throughout the web. My life would be quiet and lonely without the spirit and creativity of the amazing women I have become to know as "my friends".

My dear husband and our little pink home in our small corner of the earth is more than I could have ever dreamed for. My life is good and we are happy and that is more than enough for me this Thanksgiving.

I truly appreciate your friendship.

Have a great Thanksgiving Day with your family!
