Giving Thanks

I’m thankful for a lot of things in my life, even the bad things. The bad things made me a better person and appreciate the good things even more. I must have done something right, because the universe rewarded me. These people make me believe there is good in the world and to “Be the Good”!


I have to brag on my husband a little bit. Chris planted a fall garden this year, with the help of our boys. I thought he was crazy. He is doing a “no till” garden with cardboard and homemade compost. It looked like a mess at first, now I just need to shut my mouth and let him do his thing. He planted red clover and rye grass as a cover crop to provide nutrients, aerate the soil and hold moisture. All the new sprouts are Italian and elephant ear garlic, carrots, Swiss chard, broccoli, turnips, cabbage, mustard and collard greens and muscadine vines for jelly.  It looks like the universe might reward us with a bountiful harvest!


This sweet guy was very patient while he waited to be petted during the photo shoot! When he’s had enough and wants attention, he’ll sit on your foot and lean on you. He’s getting bossier with age!


In honor of Thanksgiving, I made this card to remind me to pay it forward, give thanks for all of my blessings and to be the good.
