Giving Thanks for ...

my amazing husband who doesn't let a day go by without doing something for someone else

my sweet father- and mother-in-law who raised a wonderful son for me to marry

Maggie who can make me laugh even when I don't feel like laughing

a daughter who brings joy to my life and puts a smile on my face... every day

pencils, paints, brushes, papers, canvas, and the courage to create

beautiful views of rivers and oceans and clouds and sky

a home filled with love and warmth and joy

colors of fall that only God can create

the spirit of Christmas with its traditions and sparkly lights

a good book that makes you stop, think, and appreciate

friends I've met through blogs and scrapblogs

having a job that is both challenging and rewarding

sisters who listen and laugh with me

Jesus Christ, my savior, from the artist Akiane
