So here are the things I am THANKFUL for, in no particular order:
family, friends, my cats, my boyfriend, my bright apartment, my fast-walkin' legs, my good health, my creativity, my etsy shop, living in America (the land I love best), the food in my fridge, hot & cold running water, the sun, the moon, the stars (oh, the stars!), the birds in the sky, the squirrels in the yard, hearing music, missing my grandma, grandpa and cousin Alison, because that's a reminder that I loved deeply and was loved deeply, cooking, eating (!!), books, my literacy that I never take for granted, my cameras (because i have several), all my fun art projects, the fact that people care what happens to me, the JOY in my life, the excitement in my life!, the traveling I have done, the traveling I will do, all the laughter in my life, all the smiles, people who read my BLOG (oh yes, you!), and so many other things that I would be here all day and get nothing else done.
But see, now that I have laid all those wonderful things out there, I feel amazingly blessed! I feel charged up and loving, and special, and grateful. I am a very lucky girl, and I am ever so thankful for LIFE, which is constantly amazing and surprising me with gifts and joys that I treasure, and that I want to share with YOU.
