There's something beautiful about waking up to thankfulness.
Yes, some mornings I wake up I'm grouchy...worried...sleepy, etc.
But this morning the absolute wonderful feeling of thankfulness washed over me.
What a true blessing it is!
I'm realizing that THESE are the good ol' days.
That I've been blessed with the most precious family ever.
A dear husband that I'll celebrate our 35th anniversary with
in just a few weeks.
Five sweet sons that make me realize that they are my true gift in this life.
And how blessed are we that they have met
such beautiful people that love them so.
Plus our two precious grandbabies, Clara and Murray ~
growing like little weeds and filling our hearts with love.
Healthy parents and in-laws that I treasure so very much....
How very thankful I am this morning!
Well, really...I am thankful every morning but I just love it when
it's first and foremost in my mind and makes my heart swell.
Speaking of these two angels, they came for a little visit this week ~
Look at Clara's smile!!! She's already lost two bottom teeth but
it seems like such a bigger deal now that she's lost a top tooth!!
Also...can you believe our youngest son Noah
is now a senior in high school?!!
A friend recently took this wonderful photo of him
and I simply can't believe our baby is 18 years old!
He's still my baby in my eyes though ~
And from the studio....
I finally decided that it was time to make a few needle books!!
It's been quite a while since I've made any of these sweeties.
I guess I'd forgotten how much I really enjoy making them!
They are quite simple but embellished with snippets of old lace
and of course, a bit of seam binding.
I've added these to my shop if you'd like to take a peek!
Plus I've added a few more other goodies too!!!
I hope you are doing so, so good...
and that you too have a thankful heart today!!
Thank you always for stopping by to visit me ~
hugs and love,
