Blessed and Grateful

Friends are such a blessing, aren't they?

There have been times in my life when I've had many, many friends.

And there have been times in my life when I've had very few.

But to have one good friend who totally gets you...that is priceless.

You know, that person you can text at all hours when a thought pops into your brain, and they will be there...laughing with you, crying with you, holding your hand or booting you in the behind when the occasion calls for it.

I wish I had a nearby friend who I could call and say "Hey, this grey weather is killing me. Let's go out for coffee."

Instead, I have to rely on the telephone to make that connection. But I need to get better at sending cards, too.

I'm currently reading this book, and it is giving me new insight into living a life in gratitude. I figure January is a perfect month to reboot, turn off the negative, and look for the positive.

Looking for blessings and remembering to share them, too!

Blessings on your Friday, cafe friends!


  1. That scallop edge die is super cute! Great layout to the card.

  2. I have that book too. I started to read it, and while it's good, I kind of thought it was too secular - not giving credit to God. But I do want to finish it and glean what's good about it.

    1. I've kind of stalled halfway through reading this, Sandy. And I think it's for all the reasons you just mentioned. Gratitude is something much bigger to the Christian, don't you think? There's some good food for thought here, but it could have gone a lot deeper.

    2. Yes, you nailed it - gratitude is much bigger to the Christian!
