I'm grateful for . . .
This time of year.
This time of year is always filled with colors, family, love, shopping, baking, decorating, smells, mixed emotions and STRESS!
Several things I'm grateful for this week, first is learning to manage my time and my emotional/mental health this season. It's only taken me 43 years to do it, but I don't feel the burdens of the past. I'm grateful I have taken care of myself and allowed myself to understand and see the balance of what "needs" to be important this time of year verses the "wants" to be a perfect season.
I'm grateful for accomplishing cards, decorations and baking this past week with no pressure or expectations. This will be a wonderful holiday season filled with simplicity, love, family and friends.
I'm also grateful for blog giveaways and free patterns. Be sure to catch up on this Blog Hop hosted by fabric makes Henry Glass.
