thankful part 1

The upcoming holidays have me in knots, but I have decided that instead of giving into the funk, that each post is going to be about or at least include 1 thing that I am thankful for this Thanksgiving.. feel free to play along if you want.. here is my first..

I am so thankful for blogger friends like Holly for sending me this unexpected gift..it means alot to me, and it made me smile when I got it yesterday.. on a day I was having a hard time to even fake a smile..

So pretty. I like your positive outlook on the holidays. They are hard for me too, but I try to be thankful for what I have and cherish the happy memories of what I don't.

Aww that is beautiful! She did a great job! I am dreading the holidays myself too. I find myself wishing for what should have been alot more when the holidays are approaching so fast. *HUGS*

Holly said...

I am so glad you like it and got it on a day when you were down. That is a great idea to post one thing you are thankful for.

That is so sweet of Holly to do! She did one for my Jenna and it made my heart smile, it was so unexpected and I sure appreciated it! I think your idea is wonderful about posting what you're thankful for... I think I may do that too.

The photo is amazing! I am thankful for you, Jen! I love you sister! Miss you more than you know! We miss Ella dearly but I do find little comfort in knowing that she is spending the holidays in the arms of Jesus surrounded by angels! Still praying that God continues to mend your broken heart and that He gives you your hearts desires.

*Hugs*
