Through out the year I have the immense pleasure of being gifted with the beautiful imagery of a Jacuqie Lawson card from caring friends.  I love them for a multitude of reasons ~ from being selected to receive one as a gift, to the beautiful animated imagery I aspire to create one day as a graphic artist.  They truly make the holidays bright!

This Thanksgiving my oldest son and his wife are coming out to visit with three little ones in tow.  I remember those days and it's hard to believe I'm now on the visiting end of that circle of life.  It's a role I welcome with open arms though. I get go hug my children, meet my youngest granddaughter, see how much my grandson has grown, and bake cookies with my big-girl granddaughter.
I'm sure our days will be filled with lots of chatter, laughter, and not enough sleep ~ sounds like the perfect holiday weekend to me. So while the crowds are out in droves hitting the stores (or perhaps each other) we'll be celebrating the old fashioned way ~ with warmth, family, and love.

Here's wishing you all the same and so much more!



  1. Wishing you and your family a very blessed Thanksgiving Sharon. It's a bittersweet feeling to be on the other end of the family cycle now I would expect...but the joy of spending time with your children and their children & meeting your new granddaughter -- doesn't get much better than that! xoxo

  2. What a blessing to have your family to celebrate life with. I hope you have the bestest family visit ever. Thanksgiving blessings with warm hugs, Oma Linda

  3. What a wonderful heart-warmning post - sounds like you're going to have a lovely celebration surrounded by those you love - that so beats traipsing round a shopping mall doesn't it! Happy Thanksgiving to you x

  4. Happy Thanksgiving dear Sharon! I wish you a wonderful, loving and warm weekend with your family! Enjoy the love you feel for each other! Warm hugs, Els.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving my friend---you bring so much joy and beauty to so many---I wish you the best
    Hugs, Bonnie

  6. Dearest Sister Soul...
