Counting Blessings.

The kids and I decorated for Christmas yesterday. I know, I know, it’s early! I don’t really have any Thanksgiving decor though so putting up Christmas felt like the festive thing to do. As soon as I started bringing up boxes, the kids went bananas for it, so it was a total win.

Having done most of the cleaning yesterday, I took an hour or so this morning to dust and give a little shine to my spinning wheels and spindles. My holiday company will start arriving today so this was my last opportunity to do so before things got busy. The sun slowly came up. Big, fat snow globe flakes of snow started to fall. In that quiet moment, I took a deep breath and counted my blessings. I am thankful. For family. For friends. For my home. For the cold November blue skies. For the sun shining. For the big, fat snow globe flakes of snow. For my beautiful spinning wheels. For the friends I’ve made through craft and all I’ve been able to learn from it. For all the experiences of the past year. I’m just so very thankful.

This Thanksgiving I hope that you each get a quiet moment to take a deep breath and count your blessings, too. Some days they are harder to see, some days they are as blinding as the morning sun, but they are there. And they are many.

  1. They ARE there, and I am so glad you had a quiet moment with your pretty tree and your wheels and spindles. Enjoy the chaos that the next few days will bring, and remember this quiet moment. Happy Thanksgiving to all the TKS family!

  2. No matter what, when we have family and friends, we are richly blessed. Thanks for that reminder. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. GOBBLE! 😁

  3. Thank you for your so positive attitude. I have the tendency to see the glass (half)empty and it feels so good to read your notes and remember things are beautiful.
    I am grateful.
    Love to you and your beloved.
