* for the opportunity to do something I love and to share it with all of you.
* to all the people that have supported any of my crafty endeavors - embroidery, Stampin' Up, and A Muse - thank you so much.

So, why am I celebrating?
* For all of those things above
* For 1 year of blogging - January 2008 will be one year!

And, I am thankful for 8 brand new lab puppies born on Dec 7th.

I'm thankful for my husband. He's always the one person I can rely on, no matter what.

Jennifer Scull said...

What a generous thing to do! and such a great way to round out the year - thinking of things we're thankful for.

I'm thankful to God for all that He has brought me through. No matter what I have done, He has remained faithful to me. I have been through some yucky health issues in the past few years and our family has suffered a lot, but God has stayed right there with us offering glimmers of hope when there seemed to be none. He has blessed me with a beautiful family, friends beyond all measure, and a fantastic hobby that brings me great comfort.

Happy New Year to all of you!!! :)

I'm thankful to God for all of the blessings he has given me. I'm thankful for my husband who works hard to support us so that I can stay home with our children. I'm thankful for my precious children and their health. I'm thankful that my grandmother turned 80 this year, and that she survived a heart attack a few months ago. This year I was particularly thankful that my son had a great start to his kindergarten year (after worrying about it all summer!), with a wonderful teacher at a school that we love. I'm thankful for my home and that we found this wonderful neighborhood by chance 5 years ago, where I met a fun, caring, neighbor named Geeta who has become a dear friend.
