Blessed Thanksgiving!

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praises to thy name, O Most High;
to declare thy steadfast love in the morning,
and thy faithfulness by night,
to the music of the lute and the harp,
to the melody of the lyre.
For thou, O Lord, has made me glad by thy work;
at the works of they hands I sing for joy.
Psalm 92:1-4

So lovely to look back upon this year and to see the many blessings that have been given to me and to find so many things to be thankful for!

I've been blessed with time to paint...

Week 1 of Daily Stitching.
and time to stitch!

And there has been the move to a job closer to home, freeing up many hours in the day and decreasing my stress levels enormously! So many things to be thankful for!

But most precious of all has been the time spent with those I love.  Catching up with precious relatives that we don't get to see often,

Friends!          Gerry & Lisa
And lovely time spent with dear friends! (and many more who aren't pictured here!)

One of my most favorite things has been gatherings at home with my kids.  Few things make me happier than to have them all gathered around the table together and listening to their friendly banter, laughter and conversation!  What a joy to have a family that enjoys spending time together!

And this year, the special blessing and amazing gift of two precious granddaughters!  So incredible!

Happy the people to whom such blessings fall!
Happy the people whose God is the Lord!
Psalm 144:15

Wishing you and yours a Blessed Thanksgiving!
