Thankful...

There is truly so much to be thankful for in this world if we will look at the little things and verbally thank people when they help us, and especially thank our Heavenly Father for all the blessings He gives us every minute of every single day.

When I am down, I can take out that Blessing Book, and remind myself of those things I feel deeply grateful for on those days when it feels 'good to be Bev'! Each day I say a quiet 'thanks' prayers to my Heavenly Father. My spirits are lifted up to a higher plain and I can see through the 'cloud' once more if I will do this.

I just bought Josh Groban's NOEL Christmas CD-- it is gorgeous by the way. My fave song on there is one called 'THANKFUL'. There are already YouTube montages of this tremendous song so I am embedding my favorite one in this message for all of you, and for me to come back to listen to over and over. The words are beautiful...

JOSH GROBAN - THANKFUL
by David Foster/Carole Bayer Sager/Richard Page

Somedays, we forget to look around us,
Somedays, we can't see the joy that surrounds us,
So caught up inside ourselves,
We take when we should give,
So for tonight we pray for,
What we know can be,
and on this day we hope for,
What we still can't see,
It's up to us, to be the change,
and even though we all can still do more,
there's so much to be thankful for,
look beyond ourselves,
there's so much sorrow,
it's way to late to say, I'll cry tomorrow
each of us must find our truth,
it's so long overdue,

So for tonight we pray for,
what we know can be,
and everyday, we hope for,
what we still can't see.
It's up to us, to be the change,
and even though we all can still do more,
There's so much to be thankful for,
even with our differences,
There is a place were all connected,
each of us can find each others light,

So for tonight, we pray for
what we know can be,
and on this day, we hope for,
What we still can't see,
It's up to us, to be the change,
and even though this world needs so much more
there's so much to be thankful for.

-------------------------------
May we all find the joy in the small moments in life this day and may we share them and bring joy to others.

and never forget to: HUG THE ONES YOU LOVE!

Hi Vic! I am so glad you found my simple mitten pattern too. You know, I've made those for all my kids and they have worked up in Upper MI and WI, and they are quick to make!

You can use a strand of WW yarn and a strand of sock yarn to make them even warmer. They can also be made of wool and felted!

HUGS!!
Bev
