BLOG Candy


I have had a terrible week. As of today I am done feeling sorry for myself. I just wanted to say that I am thankful for so many things. (Sometimes I need to remind myself of all the wonderful things in my life). One of the things I am thankful for is all the nice comments that everyone has been leaving me. BIG THANKS!!! BIG HUGS!!!!

This morning I noticed that I had 2500 hits, (2500 to be exact). So it is Blog Candy time. The candy is the polka dot wheel and some stamps (the spring-time stems hostess set and then some other misc ones added in.)

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post and tell me something that you are thankful for. It can be anything, from GOD to getting a front row parking space.

Thanks to everyone for stopping by.


Edited: Ooops I forgot to attach the picture and add that I will be drawing a name on Tuesday. Good luck everyone. See I am just not myself this week.

I am thankful for my Savior, my country, my family.... It's awfully hard to narrow it down when I am so incredibly blessed.

Stamps!! It may not sound as important as the things other people have listed. But through stamping I have been able to brighten other people's days and my life has been brightened through all the people I have met!

Sometimes I get down like that too. I am thankful for a husband who does not care how much I spend on craft stuff, because he knows it is my outlet and makes me happy. I am also thankful my non-verbal autistic daughter said, "Mommy" on Tuesday this week. She has not said "Mommy" in 4 years, since the MMR shot when she lost all speech, etc. I can't wait to hear it again!!!

I am also thankful for this wonderful giveaway! The stamps are wonderful. I don't have any of them and I would be thankful to you if I won them! :)

Suzy said...

Hello there
I hope you are having a better day. Besides the "biggies" (God, being alive, living in a land of peace and having warm shelter and food to nourish my body) I am thankful for Allan, my soulmate. He loves me for what I am, faults and all. My butt is too big, my temper can be hot and he just smiles. Now the stamping obsession he could do without lol.

But I am most thankful for hope, and possibility. It is fresh and everyday we get a new chance. What could be better? Speaking of which ...I would be most thankful for a child so if any of you could put me in your thoughts and prayers for that, I would appreciate it :)

I am thankful I found someone who loves me when I thought no one would ever again. I am also thankful I found something I could do, and do fine (rubber-stamping that is :) ). There many other things, but they're way too much to write them all.

And also, thank you for making me take the momento to realize how blessed I am :)

I'm thankful for my son. He's the child I hoped and prayed for. He makes me laugh every day and has completely stolen my heart and soul. I thankful for my family. They are always there if I need them. And last but not least I'm thankful for my friends. No matter what is going on in our lives we always connect if one of us needs an extra push or hug. It doesn't get much better.
