Thanksgiving Thoughts

I'm taking this opportunity to voice my gratitude for the many gifts I have been given.

I'm thankful for my family and the relative health of all of us. We each have something that has compromised our health this past year and with grace, and modern medicine, we have come out still standing.
I'm thankful that my son has found love and look forward to watching this sweet time unfold for him. Love really is grand.
I'm thankful for Dani who loves James
I'm thankful for Dani's family, who are gracious, kind, and smart. We have been invited to share Thanksgiving with them and are looking forward to a fun time with lots of their traditional foods. I've been asked to bring mashed potatoes and gravy, which I suspect has more to do with James than them. James doesn't feel it's Thanksgiving unless there are mashed potatoes and a gravy lake. I will apologize for allowing this forever.
I'm thankful for friends who make my day happier. Friends on line who I have enjoyed getting to know and for all they share with me both personally and creatively.
I'm most thankful that in 1984 I looked at Roger and saw that he would be the best husband in the world. He was already a true friend so it was a good bet. One I'm happy I made to this day.

I hope that you have a wonderful holiday with lots of good food and someone to enjoy it with.

I have finished painting the sewing room but am so overwhelmed with Food Pantry work right now that I must, once again, apologize for nothing quilty to show. We have gone from 100 to 140 families this year and the work never ends.
Anyway, the room is coming along and I'm learning to love the idea and the paint color. I think I would have liked it to be more blue but it is done and I'm not doing another color right now. I need curtains and a table for cutting/small ironing board and machine set up. One day I will sew again.....really.
Blessing to you all.
