So Thankful!

This year has been insane. If you had told me in January that by October I would be divorced and living back in New York I would have had someone take you away in a straight jacket. Life is so unpredictable!

But I also have a LOT to be thankful for this year, and with Thanksgiving coming up I’ve been thinking more and more about it.

And I’m thankful….

That I am healthy (aside from the teeny cold I have at the moment).

For Mom, Dad and Amy.

For Michele. I still haven’t been able to thank her enough. I never will.

For Terry, who welcomed me into her home when I first arrived back in New York.

For Wayne, Shawna, Alysia, Damian, Terry, Jessica, Cullen, Andy, Bob and Joanne. These are my friends. My wonderful amazing friends who have helped me with everything from moving to finding a job.  

That I have wonderful friends and family who have all supported me, helped me, given me shoulders to cry on and dried my tears.

That I am back home in New York.

That I have a job.

That I have a place to call home.

That I am starting to get my quilting mojo back! It’s been a LONG time since I even wanted to sew but I’ve been gathering for a project that I hope to start this weekend.

For my blog friends who have kept in touch and encouraged me even though I haven’t blogged about anything remotely crafty in months. I ♥ you all and your blogs have helped inspire me again! So, thank you.


  1. Oh wow...lots of changes but I know that in life, we just wouldn't be able to make it without our friends...

  2. Nice. I hope you have a fun weekend with fabric!
