Welcome to my addiction!

Thank you for stopping in and looking around. I am an admitted paperholic and try to participate in all things stamped. In the past I have taught classes on unique techniques at our LSS and have loved every minute of it. My mind continues to want to create and share. I garner my inspiration from fellow bloggers, our LSS, and some of the horticulture magazines that come in the mail. Simple pleasures in life make me smile and that includes a simple yet elegant card or piece of paper that I see potential. Please feel free to share your work with me as I share my work with you. Enjoy your visit!

Day 4 of Thankfulness

Today I want to express my thankfulness for family.  I have three brothers, one of whom has a birthday in a couple of days, my mom and dad and my two sons with their families, my husbands: father, sons, brothers and sisters and all of everyones kids and grandkids.  Our family is very extended as we are blended on both sides.   We have 12, almost 13, grandchildren and they are all the pride and joy of our life.  None of our family lives near us anymore so we don't get to see them very often but when we do, it is always a joyous occasion.  Of our six sons only two are Christians, so we pray earnestly for our other sons and their families.  With all of our brothers and sisters with their families, our prayer lists are very long, but we love each and every moment that we are honored to pray for them in their daily walk in life.  We have one granddaughter who is very special to us as for the most part we had custody of her and raised her for the first 12 years of her life.  Family is such a wonderful gift, and there are so many different types of family, but today I talk of Marital and blood family.  Those who care for you and love you like no other.  My MIL passed about 6 years ago, but until then, she was a wonderfully Godly woman who raised my husband and his siblings with God's help. A wonderful woman, a wonderful man who produced God fearing wonderful children.  Yes, I am very Thankful for my blood and Marital family.
