Thanksgiving Eve and so Much to be Grateful for!

My heart is full of gratitude for all of my blessings. Our family has had a lot of challenges and triumphs this year, and we are grateful for it all. I know it has made me a better person and I feel growth in ways that I know my Heavenly Father wants me to improve. It isn't easy and at times I wonder where I will get the strength to get through, and then I remember that I have the most wonderful friends, an amazing family and a Saviour who knows me personally and I am comforted that it will all be okay.
I got to spend time with some of those fantastic friends this last weekend at card group, we swapped some adorable gift tags, visited, snacked, made that adorable Christmas Lists notebook that was inspired by Lisa Johnson, checked out the letterpress system from Quick Kutz, and then a couple of us caught a late showing of New Moon together! It was just what I needed for a recharge of my batteries.
A huge box of super goodie coolness was also delivered to my house from my World Card Making Day win! The sponsors of that contest were so generous, and I can't wait to start digging into and using all of that fun stuff! I am so grateful to have a hobby that I love so much that is an outlet for most of the emotional baggage that gets built up from life.
We have a bunch of our dishes for tomorrow's meal being prepared tonight, so I am going to go get back to it. But I will be sharing pics of my matching apron and headband tomorrow that I will be cooking in! Stuff like that makes me so happy too!
And to all of you who stop in to see what I am up to, thank you very much!

Happy Thanksgiving my friends!
