|Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

I have so much to be thankful for this year. For every time we were sent south for J’s work in the hottest time of the year we had bonus visits with friends and family. For every day when the water connection leaked and the basement got sopping wet we had a day with beautiful sunshine reflecting fall leaves on a lake. None of our ‘disasters’ were all that bad; our truck broke down and we lost electrical power during Hurricane Irene – with friends close at hand to help, in one of our favorite campgrounds.
Our house in PA sold in record time, and my Dearest Husband J took on the almost overwhelming task of getting us sorted and out of there this past winter so that I was able to stay home in Florida and help our cats get well. We found a home for my MIL and she loves it and the area and is making friends and getting more visits from her daughters than they’d all planned.
We had time to visit with aunts and uncles and cousins this summer. I got to go to the Houston Quilt Show! And I’m inspired and excited with plans and projects for the coming year.
SO many blessings, truly: “A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.” May your Thanksgiving be blessed also.
