I just got an email from Artbeads.com. They have just launched a holiday giveaway called Stocking Stuffer Sweepstakes! What's up for grabs is a stocking full of beads and a $100 gift card! woohoo! Who wouldn't want that? I have already entered, and of course I really really really want to win, but in case it's not me...I hope it's one of my readers.
Click here to enter the contest. Good luck!!!
Here it is the day before Thanksgiving, and I am going through my head all the things I need to do to prepare for our outing to visit family. Gotta go shopping tonight for some goodies, gotta make the green bead casserole (as I do every year, because mine's the best :) gotta get Sara's hair all curled up and a bit of little girl makeup on, gotta get myself ready. In the meantime today I've got to clean the kitchen and cook a pork roast. Oh, and I forgot that I also have to repair a necklace. So many things to do! But, I am taking a moment to slow down and smell the roses. What is this holiday about anyways? Thankfulness. Not the rush rush rush.
What I am thankful for most in the entire world is my family. I have the best husband in the world, and all four of my children are gems in their own unique ways. I would be a lost soul if not for them. They are everything to me. Especially more so now than ever before. A couple years ago my husband and I separated, and I was very ill so he was better equipped to take care of the kids. It was a very dark and dreary period in my life. So I am eternally thankful for my second chance. And it has been pure bliss.
I am also thankful for you...those of you who take the time to come visit my blog in my little corner of the world. And thank you to those of you who take precious moments from your own time to leave me comments of encouragement, critique, and just fun things to read. I appreciate all of you and am glad to have the pleasure of calling you my friends.
With that said, I hope all of you have a very happy and safe Thanksgiving weekend, full of love and laughter.
