grateful


I wanted to pop in and not only wish you all a happy Thanksgiving but to also thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love, prayers and support.  You truly have no idea what it has meant to me.  It has lifted me on days I didn't think I'd make it.  In all my years of writing this blog I never could have ever imagined how important it would become to me.  It's because of you dear friends.  I'm grateful to know you.  Our day has been quiet, just the two of us.  My heart is bursting with love and acceptance today.  Hope yours is too.  xo

  1. Happy Thanksgiving from a Canadian reader.

    If I can get your address I'd love to send you some Haiku. My friend who had cancer said it really helped her to get thru dark/sleepless nights.

    I will send my email.

  16. To echo two of your words, it seems to me that love and acceptance are two of the best things one could hope to feel on Thanksgiving. I experienced those feelings today also, and I am profoundly grateful. Your posts are always inspirational. Thank you.

  18. Janet-I am very grateful to "know" you. I have always loved how you find beauty around you and how honest and genuine you appear. As a singe mom on a very limited budget- your posts are like a ray of sunshine showing me how to live beautifully and elegantly. I can't thank you enough for that. Happy Thanksgiving. Much love, acceptance, peace to you are Larry (whom I think of often).
