Thankfulness and a winner!!

“No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks”. — Unknown

 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.1. Thessalonions 5:18

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” — Marcel Proust

 “At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” — Albert Schweitzer

 “We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” — Thornton Wilder

 So with this I say thank you to all who follow, all who read faithfully, all you leave comments, all who drop in. For without you, this blog would be likened to a falling tree in a forest. Does it still make a sound if no one is around to hear? 
Without you my dear readers I would be that falling tree. So I give thanks for you each day.

Today I draw the winner of my heartfelt gift to you. A piece of myself. With a bit of chocolate to sweeten the pot. A linen tea towel made by me with attached lace, some beading, and some wing needle stitching.

Diane, Congratulations! Please email with your address and I'll get your package in the mail!
