From a Grateful Heart

My Heart overflows with gratitude for time in my life to create ~

and for ribbons won ~

For Vibrant fabrics that inspire ~

For beautiful friends that  hand dye silk ribbons and vintage lace ~

For my Flowers ~

And the garden they grow in ~

For dear blogging friends that bless me so ~
(and all I did was mention I like milk glass)

For My precious Teddi Bear ~

Who makes our days brighter with his silly grin  ~

For the Yellow Chair in my bedroom that Mom gave me , providing the perfect Bible reading spot in the early morning ~

For my silly family ~ even if they have traumatized Teddi from time to time

For Farmers and the Country Fairs they take part in ~

For  Kellogg's Corn Flakes .......(and Pam's relatives who invented it!)

For all of God's beautiful creations ~

For White Farmall Tractors ~

And Big Red Firetrucks ~

And Facebook Family and Friends that are Great encouragers.

 I wish you all the rich abundance of the Fall Season.

"My Life has crept so long on a broken wing,
That I have come to be grateful at last.......for a little thing."
