I'm Thankful-Impression Obsession Challenge

Today Kelli challenged us to make a creation with the theme of I'm Thankful
I'm Thankful for many things; good health, a tiny but quirky and loving Family, Some of the BEST FRIENDS a woman could ask in Canada (HERE IN MY HOME IN LESS THAN 12 hours....YAY!!!!) and in the United States too!!! 

I'm Thankful that I am employed and over two thirds pension complete!  I'm Thankful that for the most part, I love my job, which can be rare in the environment that I work in.

I'm thankful that I am a Mother and a Daughter and a Friend.

I'm Thankful that I live in Canada

I am Thankful that someone designed Cowboy Boots and learned to melt Silver

I am Thankful that there are no Cookies in the House right now (late night snacking is NOT good for me!!!.......hehe!)

I am Thankful for Spring

I love the Clean Air that fills my lungs as I take Sydney on her morning walk
I am Thankful that I have a nice peaceful area to walk in with many trees, a babbling Brook, which is at it's fullest in the Spring. I love to watch the pretty flowers peek through the ground and the fragrant aroma of fresh lilacs in the air. 

Yesterday was the perfect spring day. I walked Sydney in shorts and sandals and was not the least bit cold. It was a little overcast, but by noon the sun was shining bright and I enjoyed some time by Lake Ontario, watching the Drakes and Ducks and Canada Geese on the water. I enjoyed the warmth of the sun on my skin and breathing in the fresh air......... I enjoyed the moment, I love Spring.

Here I am ART Journalling's getting to be a regular thang....... I am THANKFUL that I can use different mediums to express my creativity!!
