Hello and Happy Tuesday!! I'm thrilled to be joining in the fun at T Stands for Tuesday with Elizabeth as the dear hostess. I am having so much fun with this blog hop, perfect way for me to spend my Tuesday mornings. I want to say a BIG THANK YOU for the comments on my painted mug Tuesday post last week, they made my day and are helping me to paint more mugs. Thank you for the birthday wishes for my hubby and I also, these last two days of celebrating have been great.
For my drink/cup this week it's a nice cold Frosty from Wendy's. I still have my cold and Thursday night my throat was pretty yucky so this was such a nice treat for it. While enjoying the tasty treat I started on my thankful list which is something I do for my birthday each year. My list is Thankful at 44, I do one for each year I am. Not sure I can do this past 60, already it takes me time to make one this long. I seem to get stuck at about #30 so I leave it out and work on it over a few days.
Each year I'm thankful for a lot of the typical things but I do try to find some of the small little everyday things too. This birthday someone special gave me an awesome present so I'd like to take this time to thank her. She is a dear friend from church and her name is Nancy.
Dear Nancy, thank you from the bottom of my heart for my Project Life gift that you gave me. I am beyond thrilled about it and can't wait to use them in my album. It meant so much to me that you knew how much I wanted these and care about me enough to buy them. It really shows how you listen to me, know me and that I would enjoy it. Thanks SO MUCH!! But there was another special and surprise gift you gave me too, one that touched my heart and filled it with JOY!!
You see Nancy reads my blog, she lives nearby and we've only just met at church a little over a year ago. Nancy is such a blessing to have as a friend, she will be there for you without a question and do anything you ask. She has a generous heart and is mother to everyone in our class. This is so much like ME. I like to take care of others, to worry over them and want the very best for everyone I know. Well, besides a few family members she is the only one here that reads my blog and can talk to me about it. She told me Sunday how much she looks forward to my posts, how they make her happy and leave her feeling good about the everything and just makes her smile. She said my posts always feel positive and happy and how I find the little things in life to be truly happy and thankful for.
This is what I do try and show on my blog, I know my readers enjoy them and the comments and emails I get show me that and makes my day each time. But oh how wonderful it is to sit down with someone and have them say that to you. It is still leaving my heart overfilled with thankfulness for all I have in this world and for Nancy who is like an Angel to me. She has shown me the way to having faith and that anything is possible and to never give up. Thank you Nancy for letting me know this. I will keep writing and sharing on my blog and hope it touches others like a lot of theirs do for me.
I'm thankful for new dear friends like Elizabeth who is letting us share a special day with her each week. I am learning so much about tea and mugs and knitting and more, each week is filled with new surprises and feels like Christmas to me each time. It's all those little things that make me happy and T for Tuesday is a perfect place to be for happiness and fun little things.
I have another part 2 of this post, this one is already a bit long. It's about more happy surprises on my birthday. I've joined another blog hop that has weekly prompts and this week's is BIRTHDAY, how perfectly timed this was. So I hope you will join me again tomorrow to read more about my birthday and the sweet homemade lovely gifts I received. Excited to share these with you!
