Thankful For Cookies

Thanksgiving is coming in a little more than 2 weeks. What are YOU most thankful for? I know all the usual, we are thankful for our children and our health and our employment and such. But what else? In a class that I took, we had to list 100 things we were thankful for. I finished my paper in all of about 30 seconds. I am so very grateful for so many things, wonderful, amazing friends that call me even when I don't take the time to call them as often as I should, my pink bicycle and the freedom, ability and strength to ride it, the beautiful red, yellow & green leaves falling from the trees, the incredible friendship that I have with my daughter that fills my heart with love, parents that love me completely and that my son is doing so well in college and has a bright future ahead of him and then there's that little angel that taps her chest as the sign language sign for Grandma (or so she thinks is the sign for Grandma because I mistakenly taught her that). My little muse that brings me such joy. And I have a new muse coming this week in the form of my first grandson. And I'm thankful for cookies. I have so much fun designing cookies and the excitement when people pick up their cookies. My cup runneth over and I am blessed and thankful. So now I want to hear what YOU are thankful for in your life. Please leave a comment on this post and share the blessings.

My goal was to make some Thanksgiving cookie cutters by November 1st. It's now the 12th. That still works, right?

I started with a Pilgrim Girl - all cutters are currently available in my Etsy shop
