I love clouds.
 Today is Thanksgiving here in the US.  This holiday has always made me reflect on those things I am grateful for.  I try to be grateful throughout the whole year, but this day helps me to say out loud the things I am grateful for.  I hope you will bare with me as I share some of those things.
Zions National Park, Utah
I am grateful for this beautiful earth because everyday I am reminded of the love that God has for us.  I am grateful for my husband and children and their unconditional love.  They love me despite my weaknesses and imperfections. 
I am grateful for my parents and Clint's parents and for our extended family.  We moved to Saint George and thought we would be all alone, but have been blessed to have both families visit a lot.
I am grateful for a house to live in, food to eat and clothes to wear. I realize that just the necessities in life are taken for granted when I think of people around the world who don't have as much. I pray that I will always be grateful for those things.  
I am grateful for my love of quilting.  
I am grateful to all of you who I have met throughout this past year since I started teaching.  I can't thank you enough for coming to my classes and making me feel so at ease when truthfully I have been scared out of my mind nervous to be standing in front of you.  
I am grateful for the years of support from all of my readers and followers. Thank you! 

There are so many more things that I could say I am grateful for, but these are the ones that stand out today. I want to wish all of you celebrating today a Happy Thanksgiving! To those of you not celebrating today I wish you a wonderful day and weekend. Thanks for listening.
