I am feeling thankful today –
and because what would a “thankful post” be without a thank you card. Here’s a little card I made this week when I was playing with some of my left over felt from a project I was working on at Christmas time.
I have so much to be thankful for:
For my little family
For my amazing friends
For my parents and my sisters and brothers
This week was a pretty busy week for us and to top it off it was also parent/teacher conference week at the school. I am happy to report that my kids are making amazing progress! It amazes me how much they change from each conference – I am so very proud of them – and feel humbled to be their Mom! They truly are amazing kids. My husband and I feel so blessed that our kiddos have such amazing teachers – and for that we are so thankful.
I learned a bit about myself this week too. Without going into too much detail – I am grateful that my parents instilled so many wonderful qualities within me by simply setting a good example for me. One thing that they taught me is that you always follow through with what you say you are going to do. I learned this week that not everyone learned this lesson while they were growing up – and unfortunately that leaves a lot of extra work for others. So I feel thankful they took the time to teach me some of life’s important lessons at a young age – after all we are all only as good as our word.
This week is also an exciting week for our extended family – I have a new little nephew! Since my brother and sister-in-law live over 8 hours from me I wasn’t able to meet the little guy yet – but I am looking forward to it! There is something truly magical about having a new little person to love.
I also feel really blessed to have such wonderful and supportive friends in my life. I have never been one that runs out and makes a million close friendships – but I will say the ones that I do have are amazing! And I feel so blessed!
I am humbled to have such amazing crafters that follow my blog and leave me such wonderful encouraging comments! If I haven’t said it before - Thank you! Your words of encouragement mean so much.
I wish I could pick each one of you to win something – but I simply couldn’t. So without further ado the winner of my blog candy is:
Staci – please send me a pm at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get your goodies off to you.
Now I know I said I would have another giveaway this week and also post some of my march freebie cuts – but life was just nuts this week – so stay tuned I hope to get it up soon :)
Have a super day everyone!
