Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all in Canada. It is that time of the year again when I like to set aside some time and ponder about what I am thankful for this past year. I find that if I think of all the positive things that have happened over the year they out weigh the negative and there are many things to be thankful for.

1. I am thankful for my two wonderful children who continue to make me proud by what they do.

2. I am thankful for a partner who is supportive and caring and fun to be around with.

3.I am thankful that I don't have to go to bed hungry at night as so many people in this world do.

4.I am thankful for the tatting community that shares ideas and patterns and are always happy to provide assistance when needed.

5. I am thankful for the friendships that I have made in the tatting community.

6. Most of all I am thankful for the small things in life which bring me joy like HDT, a new shuttle, blooming flowers, good food and a bottle of wine.

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and take a few minutes to think about what you are thankful for.
