Thankful for...

This Thanksgiving week I am feeling very thankful for so many things. I am always thankful for the warm and cozy home I share with my family.  We are so blessed to have a home filled with love and laughter at the edge of the North Georgia mountains.

I'll never be able to do enough good deeds in this life to deserve these amazing people. I am so thankful beyond words for this faithful and patient husband who is such a devoted father to our children. We could not be more proud of these three kids who are becoming amazing adults in front of our eyes. Parenting them has been the best adventure of our lives!

I'm so thankful for my new job at this wonderful quilt shop. The staff has made me feel so welcome and it's an honor to be a part of such a talented and hard working team. The fabric is fabulous, but the people and friends make it an extra special place.

 Needless to say, I'm thankful for Boomer and all of his crazy wild energy. He's a handful but he is the sweetest soul on earth, even if he is bouncing around in every direction at once!

And I'm thankful for these sweet doggies who put up with Boomer and require lots of extra naps since he joined this crazy family of ours. I'm not mentioning the cat today as she did something dreadful to the carpet, but I'll probably be thankful for her again tomorrow...or maybe the next day.

And I'm truly thankful for these beautiful women in my life. They inspire and encourage me more than they will ever know. They set the best example of what creative, strong and intelligent women can be. I'm lucky to call them friends.

I sincerely hope that each of you are finding many things to be thankful for as well.

Happy Thanksgiving!
