Next week we'll be celebrating Thanksgiving here in the States. It's a time for thinking about our blessings and gifts, for spending time with family and friends, and it's the official beginning of the Holiday Season.

A few months ago I started a journal that's been dedicated to expressing gratitude for life's little blessings: Candles when there are no lights, a friend who becomes an angel during a family crises, an empty parking space in a full lot . . . . You get the idea!
Thought you might like to see some of the things I've been grateful for this fall.

By the way, I am very grateful to Lee @ The Way I see It for her generosity and kindness. Lee discovered a few blogs that she thought were visit-worthy, and was dismayed at the fact that although the blogs and the artists were awesome, no one had taken the time to leave any comments. Despite her busy work schedule, Lee did a very generous thing. She decided to do a giveaway for anyone who visited and left comments on those fabulous blogs. Wonderful people DO inhabit this earth!
Also, my heartfelt gratitude to Beth Niquette @ Beth's Artworx Beth's blog post on Tuesday featured the journal page in my previous post. On Tuesday's, Beth generously writes about and showcases artists who's work she finds particularly inspiring. Her blog post also provides a forum for all artists of all mediums to share their work with one another.
I'm also grateful to everyone who's been visiting here and to everyone who leaves a comment - no matter how small. My personal life has been a bit crazy over the past few weeks, and my blog visits have sadly fallen by the wayside. My spare time has been spent on planning a surprise birthday party for my husband over Thanksgiving weekend. (Shhhhh! It's a secret!) I am truly blessed and thankful for my dear Blogland friends!
