Thankfulness and Gratitude

I am thankful for:

-my husband, who is supportive and knows just what to say to soothe me
-my daughter, who has lots to say about books, life and grand plans
-my son, always happy and not a care in the world
-my sister, my best friend
-for my family whom I love deeply
-for car rides, trips and outings far and near
-coffee in the morning, decaf green tea at night
-endless music that is played, hummed and imagined
-sweets (especially chocolate)
-the knitting, oh the knitting!
-the shiny brightness of a brand new morning
-books and stories and imaginations, losing myself in another place
-Frodo and our walks, his funny ways and his love of life
-childhood memories
-traditions- old and new
-my faith
-the kindness of others

  17. Good morning, Karen,

    My husband walked by when I was viewing your blog. He saw that gorgeous blanket you are working on and said, "Hmmm...someone is quilting" and then I explained to him about the blanket. He LOVED it. :) SO, my friend, if you are going to do a drawing to see who gets it when it is completed, it would be alright to put my hubby's name in the hat, too. :)

    I loved your list of things you are thankful for. I am sorry that I've not been around much to leave comments here, but now the family is safely tucked away back in Maine and our house is SO SO quiet I am finding all kinds of time! :-)

  18. I am thankful that you are there to be thankful for all of these things! xx

    How do you get your blanket not to PULL when you pick up stitches? That's always been my problem

  21. Your blanket looks amazing!!
