I am Thankful





I am thankful for the sun on my face and the wind in my hair. I am thankful for the clean air that I breath and the fresh water I drink. I am thankful that I live a life that, in comparison to many other people in the world, is relatively stress free.

I am thankful that I have been blessed with good friends and loyal family. I am thankful that I have one child to love and a heart that has proven to mend itself together when fragile or broken.

I am Thankful That I can Throw my head back towards the heavens and give thanks........that I can see all the beauty on the earth, that I have a brain to process through the ugly and for ears that can drink in all the wondrous sounds of the world.

I could write pages and pages of everything that I am thankful for.........the little things that I take for granted each day, like my freedom to hop in my truck and go where I want to go or do what I need to do. I am thankful for more profound things as well......... for living in a Democratic Country, to be a woman in Canada where I am not repressed from realizing my goals, for having a healthy child ..............but most of all

I am Thankful that I am

I wish all my Canadian friends a peaceful Thanksgiving. Take some time to reflect on the things that you are thankful for. Then look toward the heavens and smile.

























I coloured this card for the colour Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers last Tuesday, but I didn't get around to finishing it.

Last night, loaded down with Turkey and feeling like I might explode, I plopped my Lazy Bahookie into my Ultra Comfy Office Chair (oh YES!!! I am very thankful for that!!!) and finished this card.

This sweet image is Cabbage Rose, available at STAMPOTIQUE. In addition, the sentiment and blades of grass are also available there..........just follow the link in my sidebar!

Accessories: Cuttlebug, MM metals, Prima Flowers, SU brown grosgrain

Colours: Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip

  7. I am so pissed I didn't get invited up for Thanksgiving! Were you scared I'd eat you out of house and home? That I'd drink the ggood liqour? Or that my snoring would be so loud your dad would have to go stay somewhere else?

    All this time I though you were natural blond....
