Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I think this holiday reminds people of what they have to be thankful for - but shouldn't we be doing that all year long?
I love the image of a cornicopia. In addition to the colors of the rainbow, it signifies to me a great bounty of food we should be thankful for, especially in this economic period when more people are doing without.
I am thankful for my husband and children and grandchildren, and our good health and happiness. I guess I should include the dog and cats in that, even though they can be trying. :) I am thankful for our extended families and siblings. I am thankful that my sisters share a love of crafts and sewing and thrift stores! I am thankful that we are employed and can put food on the table and keep a roof over our heads. I am thankful for my friends, and even though we don't see each other much, we can always pick up where we left off and rely on each other in a crisis.
I am thankful for my coworkers and customers at the quilt shop who inspire me to be better at the craft and try new things. I am thankful that our washing machine is still hanging on (it is older than my last three kids, but owes us nothing at this point). I am thankful I have the privilege of working from home, as it allowed me to spend time with Kara - a luxury I did not have when the other kids were young. I am thankful that we have the opportunity to live free and especially thankful to our military who are serving to continue to allow us to do so.
Have a great holiday everyone!
