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

love

Scout, a loyal if not royal member of the family

So beautiful Roban! I'm so glad to read one of your blog posts. They always make me feel happy inside. I've missed reading your updates. I know how little time teachers have to devote to anything else though!
