It’s that wonderful time of year when gratitude fills the air. We take time to reflect on all that we have been blessed with. Events of the last few days combined with this reflection have me feeling very grateful. Let me share.
Recently I had a Happy Chemo Sew In. This is when I gather fellow quilters and we work together to make quilts for those fighting cancer. Well, at my most recent one, my friend Ruth brought a mini quilt to share with all who volunteered. This is the sweet one I received. I have always loved this little pattern. I have seen it often on flickr and pintrest and it was on my bucket list. So imagine my delight when Ruth gave it to me. It touched my heart that she would not only take time out of her busy day to help me sew for others but that she would also bring me a gift. Yes I am blessed.
Then last night we held an Eagle Court of Honor for my youngest son, Neil. Momentous no only for the obvious reason but also it means that all three of my sons achieved this lofty goal. My heart was touched as friends and family gathered to pay honor to my son. As I saw leaders who had spent so much of their precious time to mentor my sons and help them to become what they are today. The moment I watched as Neil was escorted to the Eagles Nest and welcomed by his two older brothers, his friend, and those great men brought tears of joy. My heart was bursting with gratitude.
YES, I AM BLESSED!
Please take a moment and share with me how you are feeling blessed today, for each of you are a blessing in my life. Your comments cheer me on. Your friendship is dear to me. And hearing that there is good in your life will bless my life also.
