Thankful Day 1..... Sienna and Colt... I can't explain the joy and love that I have for these 2 cousins of mine. I'm sooooo very blessed and honored to be their babysitter. If it wasn't for this time with them we wouldn't even know each other. They have taught me so much in these 4 short years and will continue to for a long time. I'm also blessed to know their parents and how much they do for me and touch my life. Today Sieanna set up this little corner/fort for them to play in and filled it with toys for them. When looking at last November's photos just now I was happily surprised to see she did this exact same thing last year almost to the day. I LOVE THIS!! Thank you sweet babies for all you do.
Thankful Day 2.... STORIES....My story....their story....the big and small stories...the everyday stories...our story.... this photo is from Ali Edward's blog today announcing a new class for next year. I knew this would be what I'm thankful for today.... being the storyteller in my family has kept my heart and soul filled with joy and peace for many years..... this past year though not many stories are getting told due to my interest in art journaling.... I'm planning on making stories come first now and this class will be perfect for me..... The amazing Ali has taught me so much about telling stories and finding them and so much more..... so along with being thankful for stories I'm thankful for her sharing hers with us.... this might even be my OLW for next year.... keep telling your stories ladies...
Thankful Day 3.... the connection between BIG sister and LITTLE brother.... Kristin and Sam.... I'm thankful that they stay in touch mostly thru my iphone..... with her living in Florida and us in Ohio the visits are few and far between.... she is excited for each new event in his life and is quick to find out all the details from him.... this week it's about his first real girlfriend.... we always told him he couldn't have one that he was mine and Krisitins boy forever.... she loves him so much and he does her.... I hope this connection stays strong thru all their lives.... thank you Kristin for loving him!!!
For this month I will be taking a photo everyday of what I'm thankful for and putting these into my Project Life. During this month I will be linking up with Cathy Zielske's blog for her 30 days of Thankful every Friday. I do plan on having my Halloween pictures up on Tuesday though and then Project Life on Friday. Thank you for nice comments on my last post, makes my day!! HUGS!!
