Thanksgiving Greetings

I love this time of year. I love walks in the woods with the smell of wood-burning fires close by. I love the warm, woolly textures we wear as the air becomes crisper. I love Nature's last hurrah of a showy celebration of color. I love re-reading old books that were favorites from days gone by... and finding unexpected bookmarks in the form of letters from a dear friend long ago. I love how hanging holiday lights reminds me of happy memories,   and how there's always a chance to make new ones. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones and may you find a special peace and happiness in this season of love and sharing.


It's November, the month for being grateful. I am ashamed to say that I have let myself get so busy  that I often forget to be thankful each day for something positive in my life. So I've been trying to think of all the things that I'm grateful for this year: the friends who gave me maternity clothes,  the friends who gave me baby clothes, the friends who have made my new baby very welcome, the unexpected kindness of someone I don't know well, the friendliness of my co-workers. I am learning that I am a more grateful person  when I make room for the time to s-t-o-p,  slow down,  and think about the blessings of life. Lately, I'm trying to bring those positive thoughts to my artwork. Hope you enjoy this really short video of my latest floral Thank You cards. I recently gave these to some ladies who have positively influenced my life.
