Blogger's Challenge--Giving Thanks

Such an appropriate challenge for this week. Did you ever wonder why we think so much more about being thankful near Thanksgiving. I think we would be so much happier if we thought of what we were thankful for each and every day! I challenge you to do this for a while and feel the difference it can make in your life.

I am thankful for so many things--God, my family, friends, my church, health, my blogger friends, etc....

The list goes on and on. One of the teachers at my son's school did a contest with her kids to see who could come up with the most items that they are thankful for. When I was doing lunch monitor there were about 10-12 who spent their entire lunch writing in a journal what they were thankful for--some of the kids were over 900 items at that time. I thought that was such a wonderful think for that teacher to do--really had them thinking.

Anyway on to my card. It is a pretty easy one that I will be able to mail for the basic rate! I have been sending so many cards lately that I have been thinking about this a LOT!


Stamps: Trendy Trees, Bright Blessing Wheel, Thoughts and Prayers
Paper: Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, and Soft Suede DP
Ink: Dusty Durango, Crushed Curry, Chocolate Chip
Other: corner rounder, Dusty Durango marker

Hope you have an incredibly thankful day!
Mary Jo

Very nice card. Love the warm, inviting feel it has.
Your words are so true. We all have "much" to be thankful for but often over look even the "little" things we have to be thankful for.
