Thankful For You!

With Thanksgiving approaching, it seems there is a lot of emphasis on really contemplating what we are thankful for. And, while we should seek to cultivate a thankful heart at all times of the year, this is a great thing to emphasize!

I have mentioned before that I keep a Thankful Journal in which I note at least five things each day that I am thankful for. Often, my friends and family appear on that list. And, I often get even more specific by feeling thankful for my *blog* friends! You ladies are just wonderful and such a tremendous encouragement to me! I love getting your comments, e-mails, and hearing that you tried a recipe or craft mentioned here.

So, as we turn our hearts to thankfulness as a nation today, I just want to go on record as being thankful for YOU!

I thank God for my "blog" friends too.

It is such a blessing to have Christian friends online. You continually give me spiritual support and I am truly thankful for that.

God Bless Monica and her family this Thanksgiving day!

Happy Thanksgiving Monica and I'm so grateful for the things you've shared with us this year. I have appreciated your blog (and the American pillow you made me) very much. Thank YOU.

We made the cute turkey trivia place cards this year, and they were a hit! Thanks for all your inspirational ideas.

Hope your Thanksgiving was fully blessed!
