Give Thanks

This is the time of year when we think of all the things that we are thankful for.  Since my husband has been in hospice care we have had some time to reflect and have had many discussions about this which have been very special.  It has also shown us how many wonderful friends we have that are willing to help us during difficult times.  I have some terrific friends that came over and helped me move some furniture so that we could re-arrange the family room again to make room for more equipment.  It is the little things that mean so much!

Hey Lisa Lynn, it is the other Lisa Lyn here today with my DT hat on. I completely agree with you, now is the perfect time of year to truly reflect on what we are thankful for in our lives. I am so glad that you have wonderful friends that you can count on to help you during the difficult times. Your card will remind someone else how important it is to give thanks in a bright and cheery way. I especially like the way you have placed your leaves and that big blue button. Thanks so much for joining us in our current challenge over at Digi Darla's. Good luck and I hope we see you again in future challenges.
