Grateful Thursday

This Thursday I have much to be grateful for. My back is healing from it's very minor surgery (cyst removal). No more doctor visits needed, no more wick to pull out and put back; just down to one little bandage to be changed daily. My new blog friend, Becky, sent me these wonderful lino woodcuts she does in the form of this bookmark called "Aging Woman" I had admired... and these wonderful ATCS are " healing art cards"...she made for me...
Thank you Becky!
And then I received this beautiful collaged post card in the mail (naked)
from Lisa. To hear the story about it and my reaction
go to our Global Greetings Blog site to see it and
many other lovely postcards made and shared.
Love it, thanks Lisa.
So I am grateful for good health again
Good friends who send caring thoughts, words and gifts
Grateful that I have a job,
A roof over my head,
food on the table,
A caring, loving husband, who continues to change
bandages even when he is suffering from a yucky cold.
*** I hope this finds you feeling well and happy too!
