Thanksgiving

Fall is my favorite time of year. Don't know if it's because I was born in the fall or if it's because of the beautiful that fall brings to my part of the world. Fall is also the time of the year when Americans celebrate Thanksgiving. True thanksgiving is continuous and is more than an expression of gratitude for wealth, happiness, and prosperity. Oh, let us not forget Thanksgiving dinner. It is also about the practice of giving of ourselves, our substance, and our time.

There are so many things that I'm thankful for, tangible and intangible. It would take too long to express them all and I would probably forgot something important. But to sum it up, I'm thanksful for:


  • A true and living God, who continuously blessing me.

  • I'm still above the dirt

  • Good health

  • My sweet pea, Lauren

  • Presence of mind

  • The love of family and friends

  • Gifts and skills

  • The capacity to love and to give

  • A job and/or the ability to get a job

  • A bit of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding

  • love, peace, and happiness; good and bad times


Sewing
Yesterday, I took a vacation day. Initially because I'm usually the host for Thanksgiving dinner. This year my mom is the host so that freed my day up for sewing. I was able to finish two dresses: the dress(B4973) that I started on Saturday and M4547. It was great. I'll post pictures later.

After finishing the dresses, I cooked the Thanksgiving ham as promised. >
