Giving thanks

As we head into the Thanksgiving weekend I want to bring myself to a place of gratitude, which isn't always easy when life can sometimes be surrounded by turmoil, hate, envy and greed.  I want to be grateful for the life I have been given and the wonderfully positive people who surround me.  Life, to me, would be nothing without these people.

I have consciously done a couple things in my life to keep that message of gratitude omnipresent.  I want to it envelop my little family so they too can know the power of two simple words: thank you.

Project one was some artwork for our house:

The best things in life aren't things- says the painting in the middle (painted over one of my favourite photos from Scotland trip)



And project two was some artwork for some seriously special people in my life.  I would have made more but ran out of canvas.  I think this is something that will be continued to be paid forward as I think as parents, we often need that reminder.


If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
