a few things that make me smile














Although I'm not officially participating in this like my lovely friend is, I can't help but feel that this month is all about being thankful and grateful. Writing my first post for November sparked something inside me. It reminded me of exactly this: being thankful + grateful. Just the sound of those two words feels good, doesn't it?

So in keeping with that, I thought it would be nice to spread some of the goodness. (enjoy)

I just *love* this sweet, sweet story and of course the gift that prompted the post. I love the reflection of life's journey and the appreciation of growth rather than material things. I *heart* this blog and m's style.

From above I discovered this place. Simple, creative, fun and sometimes amusing. I like her style. She always shares nifty craft ideas and all kinds of other neat stuff too. I like it!

•This makes me smile *BIG*. This really is what life is all about. Thanks Cate.

I am thankful for all the wonderful woman who blog and share so many amazing things. I am thankful I have the means to have access to such a multitude of information and ideas. I am thankful I can be a part of it.

Sheesh Cheeky! you certainly made me smile today :) I too am very grateful for the wonderful women like you that I have "met" just from blogging. Who would have thought? I have to thank you for linking a sweet story about my boy. I needed it today because I have been so overwhelmed by him lately that I swear I have wanted to run away. Or at least leave him at the store where he was particularly obnoxious, but I'm sure someone would have quickly followed me out and shoved him in my car before I peeled out of that parking lot. That's how *charming* he was.
