thanks


All of the things to be thankful for. I don't even know where to start. It is often overwhelming to really think about all of the wonderful things that God has placed in my life. Health...check (unlike last year). Safety...check. Happiness...double check! My family...that one is obvious. I have an amazing family. My dear hubby and kids make every day such an adventure in love. And our extended families as well. I mean, I have a sister and mom who rock out the whole family thing! But I'm also very grateful for the opportunities that have been in my life as of late. Opportunities to serve and be a part f our community in a real and vibrant way. The March of Dimes asked me to donate a few baskets for their big Gala this year as a silent auction item. To be able to craft and give to a worthwhile charity at the same time is a true blessing. So is the opportunity to service at our church. The time and ability to give back to those who have done so much for me and my family...well, I really struggle to find words to express it.

And I want to thank all of you for being in my life as well. The photo above is some recent awesomeness I have received in the mail. A fall swap package from Hjori in Wisconsin (seriously awesome cards)! An awesome necklace that I wear all of the time from Rachel in France! And the apron from Erin in Kentucky! That woman has mad skills! I know we all talk about our blog friends and how hard it is to describe them. But you all are a real and valued part of my life. Thanks.

It seems you have a lot to be thankful for. And I'm sure the March of Dimes is thankful for you for donating such nice stuff.

Happy belated Thanksgiving.

Because of hetic lives, my girlfriends and I have difficulties getting together. But through blogging I still get to feel connected to women. Women who share the same interests and are experiencing similar things in life. I think blog friends definitely have real value as well :)

Some lovely goodies! It is hard to put into words blogging friendships (especially to people who don't get it), but I am so thankful for the wonderful friends I have made through blogging - including you! :) Thanks!
