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.
