Thanksgiving is just around the corner! I can't wait as it is my favorite meal of the year! But it is special for other reasons too. It's a time to stop and really give a quiet thanks for all my blessings. I think I want to start a gratitude journal again. Even if I just try to fill it out once every month. My favorite part about journaling is actually looking back, seeing where I have come from, where I still have to go.
To get us in the mood for the holiday, Lucy posted a new challenge over at So Tell Me Your Story. The charge is to do a layout showcasing what you are thankful for. I came up with the layout above. I used the very yummy Fancy Pants Daily Grind line. I adore these colors and actually handcut most of the details! The journaling reads: Sometimes I find myself smiling, feeling grateful for my blessings. Our babies, this house, our love, friends and family. There was a time when everything I have now felt like a distant dream. But it is real. All these blessing begin with us. So thank you for all the gifts you have given. For loving me.
What are you thankful for?
