Giving Thanks (a bit early)

This week at Die Cuts R Us we are taking a break from the usual and there will not be a challenge.  Instead the Design Team will be posting what they are thankful for this holiday.  So stop by the blog and see what everyone has to say!

In the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday, I would like to invite you to join me in giving thanks. Please leave a comment and let me know what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving!  And if you are not in the States celebrating Thanksgiving, feel free to leave a comment as to what you are thankful for today.

This holiday, I am thankful to God who has truly blessed me.  My husband and I just celebrated 16 incredible years married and the best is yet to be.  I'm blessed with two miracles-my boys, a wonderful family, kind and loving friends, and every morning, a brand new day.  Some are aware of my health issue and despite that, I'm thankful because at present I am able to enjoy life and those I love. 

Here's a photo of my "Dear Ones" (couldn't resist with the deer paper!!) and I used the QuicKutz Accordian Book from the Die Cuts R Us store.  I added a number of little photos of those dear to my heart!  Don't you just love mini books?! 






Hop over to the Die Cuts R Us Design Team blog every day this week to see what the Design Team is thankful for and what they created with their Accordian Books. Wishing you joy this week, sincerest thanks for your friendship and for stopping by!!

Hi Cara,lovely sweet post. Enjoyed reading about your thankful items and viewing your mini book.

Although my life has incredibly flip-flopped and change, and I am now single and starting life all over, I am thankful for my job, my car, a roof over my head and a place to sleep. Oh and my puppy. We made it here to our new home with just what would fit in my car. But, we are alive and kicking, and that's what matters.

Sure, life is hard. There are fears and anxieties....questions about the future...major health issues, but I am thankful for what I have. And maye...just maybe, santa will still come and leave me a package this holiday season.

Hugs!
