A thankful heart ~

The trees are gently swaying in the wind this rainy October morning. As I glance out my window, a sea of thankfulness washes over me. Do you have those moments? When you see such beauty that it envelopes you and your heart turns to the many blessings in your life...

Thankfulness is truly one of the keys to happiness. Whether you have much or not, to be thankful for our life, our loves, precious family and friends is a wonderful thing. Material possessions come and go, money comes and goes, but what stays in our hearts?

Our relationships with those we love ~

Thank you so much sweet friends for visiting me here. Today I have such a thankful heart.

Blessings are indeed a gift from a Gracious God! You are so right about things coming & going. Nothing stays the same. We are given our family but, we choose our friends. I hope we can become friends. I just bought your instructions for The Jar Fairy. Can't wait to get her. Have a Happy Day!

Hi Dawn,
Just wanted to stop in my busy day and thank you for the joy you bring to the blogging world. It's so easy to take things for granted without even meaning to. I needed your gentle reminder today to be thankful in all things! May your day continue to be blessed with good friends and happy thoughts!

Hi Sweet Dawn!
I have felt this way so many times and I Love it when beauty puts things back into perspective in my life. It is nature, family and loving friends like you that are the true meaning of life and happiness.

Hope you are well.
