Quilting Bee #33
This beautiful quilt by Wendy
Good morning all!! How wonderful to find you at my cabin door again..I love it when you join me on Mondays!! It is a bit nippy here and I have the fire going nicely! I do love a wood fire. I have another Sullivan family treat for today..homemade donuts. We make them every year..those delicious homemade old fashions with just a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon. I have sugared, dipped and sprinkled all morning. There are plain, powdered sugared, chocolate covered, maple and white frosted, sprinkles, nuts, filled with lemon, raspberry, cherry and custard. I have laid out some delicious oranges..navels and delicious tangerines and some yummy grapes, red and green. Yogurt of course and granola if you would like. Coffee..yup have Kona and hot tea and I added some chai too. I have racked a quilt full of gifts today. Please pull up a chair and join me.
I had the joy this week of popping around folks blogs and reading what they are thankful for. Most of us are thankful for our families and things that went well this year, health and happiness. The normal things..good blessed things. It made me smile to read about folks getting good results on medical tests, new jobs, new babies. Blessings small and large. I also stopped to think about those who have been through a deeply painful year, full of loss and illness, financial disasters and humbling falls, mental illness and pain..plain and simply...pain.
I spent a great deal of time this year laughing so hard I blew coffee out my nose. I also spent many early mornings with tears streaming down my face, so deeply touched by what is written here in these blogs..so much pain, love, tenderness, caring, crowning victories and devastating loss. I have mourned, hugged, commiserated, sobbed, laughed till it hurt, giggled, snorted, been deeply touched by and with so many of you. So today I would like to tell you that I am thankful for having found every one of you here. You amaze me..you do.. every single one of you. That you would allow me to be a part of your life just never fails to amaze me!! How blessed am I!!??
One of my greatest joys this year has been these Quilting Bees. I have been overjoyed and humbled weekly that you come back and by what you share here. By the fact that anything I have to say reaches you in some way. Weekly it touches my heart that you come back and speak with your wonderful voices here. Share deeply of yourselves, connect and give of yourselves. Amazing..you are!! Thank you for allowing me to share with you..it has made me stretch and grow in so many ways..you have my undying gratitude.
This duck has become a swan and is loving her beautiful new wings! Thank you for allowing me to be brave, stretch them and fly every Monday!
So here on the very last day of November I am want you to know how deeply thankful I am for your friendships, support, encouragement, hugs, shoulders, tears, caring, laughs, coffee through the nose, comments, emails & love. So rather than use my soap box today..I will simply say to each and every one of you...
I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you which is of love and truth, of light and of peace.
When you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me,
we are one.
I bow to you.
Would you like to share what you have found here on the blogs to be thankful for this year? I am most surely thankful for you...Namaste, Sarah
