My dad's favorite greeting was, "God is good", with the response, "All the time!" I believe this to be true. I can sometimes get bogged down with the trivialities of life, but when I think of my dad and his approach to life with God in charge, I know that I have been blessed by God in so many ways. I am so thankful for my loving family and the positive way in which I was raised!
I have the best mom in the world! She has set a good example for me in so many ways. Even now at the age of 57, I think of how my parents, especially my mom, would react to my choices. I would never want to intentionally do anything to disappoint her. I'm sure I have many times over the years, but she is so loving and forgiving that she doesn't recall some of the things that haunt me!
I have two wonderful sisters and the best brother in the world! Yes, we have had spats, but nobody could ever make me believe anything but the best of them.
My husband is unbelievable! Why he has put up with me for 29 years is beyond my understanding! He helps me around the house. He helps pull me out of my bad moods. He is never judgmental. Best of all, he does not complain about my creative messes!
I have four beautiful daughters, and four wonderful grandchildren. Yes, I get frustrated with them at times, but don't you dare question the intentions of any of my baby girls... they are far better people than I can ever hope to be!
And then there are my friends... I have made so many new friends because of this wonderful computer age! Yes, I know there are dangers in the computing world, but there are dangers every way we turn. I am happy to say that the tatting community has offered me some of the best friendships of my life!
So, like Bing Crosby, tonight I will count my blessings instead of sheep!
Oh, you wanted to know about my tatting? Okay! Yesterday, my Raspberry Sorbet thread arrived Pamela! We were both getting a bit worried, because it took so long to get here! My theory... the postal workers could smell the luscious Raspberry Sorbet and held on to it as long as they could! What other explanation could there be for a month long trip from Ireland? Last night I wound my beautiful new thread on the dragonfly... why settle for a boring floss bobbin? I think the dragonfly looks quite dapper in Raspberry Sorbet! Pamela also sent me this lovely snowflake as a gift! Luckily, I have the book! I think I'll have to try this one!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
