Thankful Thoughts-Thanks Ali Edwards
I came across these on Ali Edwards blog this evening and thought what a great idea, random thankful thoughts. I thought I might be a little more purposeful with mine and try and do one a week till the end of the year and post them on Fridays, as these tend to be a busy day around our house and not much time for crafting is available.
My first thankful thought is of my Mom, she is my rock. The person that taught me to be who I am. She is there when I need her and also knows how to give enough space that I never feel crowded or overwhelmed by her attentions. She believes in me, for which I am truly thankful. She is a great Grandma to my kids, teaching them things that I would never think of but that are truly important in life, like how to garden and sew a hem. She has instilled in my my life long love of reading and learning for which I am grateful for.
On another note I would love to share a link to my daughters blog, she is living and working in China for the second year as an elementary school teacher and I am so proud of her.
Here is a picture of Brittany standing on the Great Wall of China in Dandong, during my Feb. 2011 visit.
