Call it Grateful Thursday, Day of Abundance, Time of Thanks and Appreciation
Anyway you look at it it's good!
This delightful swatch of a quilt came to me from
Teresa in VA.
I wish you could see the velvet cat more clearly in the middle panel.
I am always touched when someone sends me something just because
as Teresa did with this sweet gift.
Owl for "O" in our ABC ATC swap, that I would see what I saw or not.
But I started laughing when I opened this little gift,
as I saw a Hassidic Owl with a flat hat and long pais (side curls)
which are actually the wings of the owl.
My Jewish soul just loves this Orthodox Owl
(another "O" word)
Thanks Joss! I am grateful for spring and the abundance of beauty in our own garden, these flowers growing and blooming in our front yard now. I adore these white little guys/gals who hang over my side fence. Henry is walking the fence that divides our yard from our wonderful next door neighbors, D & D. We are so lucky to have them in our lives and have had for the past 22 years. Both of them are suffering from different forms of cancer and on top of that had to put their beloved doggie down today. Please join me in sending prayers for healing their way. *** & DH got two letters today from former students both filled with so many accolades and words of appreciation for all that they learned from him, and telling him about their plans to go to college all because he was such an inspiration to them in his/their sixth grade class. I am so pleased he sometimes receives the thanks he and so many teachers deserve! Count your blessings and enjoy life. It is so precious! 1012
