Thankful For....

Hey my stampin' Peeps! Hope you are all having a fantabulous hip HOP! I'm so in love with this weeks theme......Thankful. You find me at a time in my life when there is truly so very much to be thankful for. Many of my close friends will be raising their eyebrows right about now....sorry....go with it....you can truly find blessings in even the most trying of times.

Here you find me so thankful for one more day with my beautiful mother. She is truly such an inspiration. ....one more day of kissing booboo's, helping with homework, cleaning the boys bathrooms..... ;)

....do you see where I am going with this?

I am so very thankful for all of the beautiful people in my life that are there for me in even the most trying of times. Some of those peeps are people you all know....Angela, Brookie, Kimber, Eryn, Michelle, ....I can keep on going. I am so very thankful for my 'family' within Unity. You have found them. You know how wonderful they are. I feel so blessed to have so many supportive, wonderful people in my corner in good times and in bad.

Guess that brings me to my creation for this week. Take a peek.....

I chose one of my favorite Unity sentiments....& Unity has so very many BEAUTIFUL sentiments to choose from....to create this one. The sentiment is perfect for me right now because, as we all know, 'into each life a little rain must fall'. I'm so very thankful for my friends who keep me sane and are there for me in the good times & bad. I truly do not know what I would do without them.

Awe! Ok....now that I have tears flowing let's keep this party hopping....I need to grab some kleenex! ;)



Hope you are all having a wonderful Thursday and even better hip HOP! ;) I will catch you all in the forum! :)

Hugs!
