I'm So Thankful!

Hello, Dear Ones! I've just been thinking. I haven't really thought much of celebrating the new year. Shame on me! Just going about my little day taking care of my Mother, Mr. Precious and Chloe Dawn, yes, in that order.

Now I don't usually make resolutions but I did decide I was going to make a much bigger effort to be thankful. Thankful!

I could look at all the bad things in my life
I could see just the hurt, the pain and strife
But I have so much to be thankful for
Despite all the evil waiting outside my door
My family is a blessing
Though we do have our times
And I am grateful for the memories I have
Because these I can keep while we all go our separate paths

My friends are amazing
I just can't say enough
To give them the credit they deserve
For sticking by me when things get tough
Those two things I treasure most
They are above everything else
You could give me money and all the glory and fame
But it would all fade in comparison to those precious names
God has blessed me in so many ways
Just sometimes the good gets lost in the bad throughout the days
But on this blessed day
I felt I had to stop and say
Thank You, God, for everything
For the sun in the sky, the birds and the trees
But most of all, Thank You for Your merciful love
And for being for me much more than enough
Thank you for all the treasure you have given me
In amazing friends and a wonderful family
I could not ask for more on this blessed day
Because everything that I need is right in front of my face
I'm so thankful for my life and for you, my Dear Blog Friends. I'm thankful for the opportunity I've had to meet so many wonderful ones and to share in your lives and hoped you've enjoyed sharing in mine too!

Guess what? I'm also thankful because...

I Won!!!!
Woo Hooness! I Won!!!


I entered our most wonderful artist, Fifiness Flowers give away and won a set of her note cards.
And, do you know what else was so special? She let me pick which set I wanted!! Woo Hooness!
Of course I picked "The Music Room" with the baby grand where I play my little Note Songs for you! Isn't this great! Thank you Dear Fifiness! If you don't know this Most Wonderful One, go visit her and tell her I sent you. You can find her at http://fififlowersdecor.blogspot.com/

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~
Give Thanks

Give thanks with a grateful heart
Give thanks unto the Holy One
Give thanks because He's given Jesus Christ, His Son

And now let the weak say, 'I am strong'
Let the poor say, 'I am rich
Because of what the Lord has done for us'

Give thanks
