As Thanksgiving Day approaches, I am struggling to remember my blessings and all I have to be thankful for. The stress and anxiety of my parents move is really weighing on me and now Emma and I are leaving today to go and visit them for the holiday weekend, so it has been crazy busy with preparations and trying to get ahead on assignments.

Wow, I really sound like a complainer, don't I? I DO have much to be thankful for - here are just a few of those things: my loving family, health, home and a wonderful life, good friends - near and far, my creative spirit, those are the things I want to focus on this week.

And more than a few things to be thankful for in the scrapbooking area, too. I remember just over a year ago - wondering if I would ever be published and now another article accepted by Somerset - a real affirmation for me about the direction I want to go. Not to let go of my passion for mixed media.

And a sweet reminder that I am loved and appreciated by my friends - Steph made this layout for me. How it warms my heart - the way you can connect with someone so like yourself who is so far away. I just know that someday we will meet and our similarities will be even funnier.....so far - our husbands have the same name, our daughters have the same name, our personalities are so alike, both creative and color driven. So amazing! Thanks, hon!! xo

So to all of my friends near and far - I am thankful for you today and wish you (in the US) a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving.
