Being Thankful

Hi every one!

What a better day than today to be filled with happiness! After all its a day of rest after an oh so ever busy week! I am very thankful to have God, family and friends not to mention a job....Even though sometimes we seem to take things for granted sometimes you need to stop and be thankful for the things we have and the special relationships we have built. With that being said I woke up thinking about a very good friend whom is going through a nasty divorce. She has been the back bone of her husbands military career for 25 years. She put her wants and needs above anyone elses. Now that he has retired, he's decided he wants someone different, something new. I feel so bad for her. I have watched her agonize over the what if's, what could have been... He left her, their 7 year old son for a 21 year old. Anyway she has been on my mind alot the past few months. I woke up this morning wanting to do something to make her smile if only for a minute. We spent a girl day not to long ago and she started telling me how she wanted to change her room and bathroom to a different color. Browns, blues, tourquoise colors. I decided to take this 18x20 canvas I had laying around and do something with it. I headed to M's and found the perfect deco paper to match her room, came home and this is what I came up with. She recently went with her family to the beach for the weekend and has a fantastic picture of her intire family. I think this would be a great place for that photo. I sure hope she likes it!

Take today and hug your family and tell them how much they mean to you..
Happy Crafting,
Hugs "T"


  1. Fabulous creation T!! Your friend will love it!! I am so sorry to hear all that she is going through!!

  2. Oh my gosh T! You are the queen of thoughtfulness and altered gifts. I am so sorry to hear about your friend, it sounds like she's better off without him and needs to thank God that she didn't live the rest of her life with this selfish man! I hope she finds comfort in your company and friendship, I know I do!!! This canvas is just beautiful, I love the colors and the overall thought behind it.
