Today is the official day (in the United States) set aside for taking a moment to count our blessings and feel thankful. It’s a day most of us spend time with our families and loved ones. Mine is still asleep as I write this. As soon as I am done, I’m going to make fresh pot of coffee and we’ll get on with our day together.
I consider myself a very lucky woman. I’ve a roof over my head, food on the table, a job I love, I have knitters!, I have wonderful friends who love me and I them and a family I treasure. One cannot really ask more than that.
I feel gratitude for this life of mine in some way, every single day. It is my goal to live in way that expresses that gratitude in thought, word and deed. Sometimes I am successful, sometimes not. I’m most definitely a work in progress! One that even needs frogging every once in awhile. We call them do overs in my family.
I just wanted to take a moment this morning, on this day of thankfulness, to say a huge heart spilling over thank you, to all of you knitters, spinners, crocheters,dyers, weavers… who have touched my life. You’ve enriched my world in ways I am keenly aware of and some I might never know. I want you to know that I feel so blessed by you and I am forever grateful and colorfully yours always!
I leave you with two of my favorite quotes on gratitude:
“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” – Thornton Wilder
“ As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” John F. Kennedy
Have a loving day.
