I'm grateful to be guest blogger this Monday over at Stash Manicure hosted by Madame Samm.
SEW many creative and talented gals who will treat you every morning with a fresh perspective, new tip, great tutorial, or new inspiration for your Quilting habit or perhaps all things crafty!
I've taken a break from Thanksgiving Countdown 2010
BREATH JANE... BREATH JANE...JUST BREATH...
to Ponder just a moment of WHY I'm THANKFUL this Thanksgiving Season
I've also made a CONSCIOUS decision FOR 2010 to not allow Christmas to SUPER-CEDE my THANKSGIVING! I've not put up the first Christmas Decoration or even the first stocking on the Mantle.
Everything is 100% Thanksgiving inspired.
NOT UNTIL the last of my family has driven out of the driveway, the TWO turkeys eaten or made into turkey salad,
the laughter faded,
the last piece of pie eaten,
the last sip of coffee taken,
the last football game watched
the last prank pulled by the 5 little Pranksters Extraordinaire,
the Trash taken out
will the Autumn decorations come down and the Christmas Wreath Hung!
NOPE...NOT THIS YEAR!!!
THANKSGIVING WILL NOT BE STOLEN FOR 2010!
This very American Holiday has always been one of my favorite times of the year and it's celebration only heightened the sense of excitement for the UPCOMING Christmas Season!! There is NO such "thang" as "THANKMAS" !!
I have way to many Blessings to allow MY THANKSGIVING to be taken away from me in 2010!
Sew there you have it!!
Family begins arriving on Wednesday afternoon and the baking begins in earnest!
New art supplies have been purchased to help entertain the Grandpeeps.
After all, how will we save Thanksgiving if we don't keep it for our Children and Grandchildren??!!
How can we begin to TEACH GRATITUDE if we SKIP over THANKSGIVING and go straight to Christmas with it's growing commercialization???
I'm so Thankful for my new friends in Blog Land. This adventure in Blogging has brought me great JOY and a way to preserve the many precious memories created by with my family.
For those of you in America, Many Blessings to you on this Thanksgiving Season. Our country is a Great Nation, one in which I am very PROUD to be a citizen.
Let The THANKSGIVING COUNTDOWN RESUME
