*You have asked me for more of me...
and i Gladly Give....

*We CONNECT.
~ it helps me to sort my thoughts~

and for all of that,
I am Grateful & Thankful for each & every-one of you
that still takes time from their day & routine to visit me here....

I am humbled by your emails,
softened by your words
and
forever in gratitude for your support
throughout
the past years...
& I wish for Thee,
Abundance
Time
Patience
Wisdome
Truth
Softness
and
Learning;
I may not be an educated Woman,
{{I only have a Ninth-Grade Education ~}}
but I know this:
I am who I am because of my Friends, Family & Loved-Ones...
I continue to do-what-I-do because of my following,
and I will continue,
in the New Year to bring you more
of
my
Heart

Hands ~
We are Connected,
through Threads,
Linen,

and I am forever Thankful for the ties that Bind.....
Wishing you ALL a Blessed Thanksgiving

Ah... Lori,

I LOVE what you share here.

- What you have to say IS important to me and it HAS helped me!
- I SO enjoy reading your blog - you provide me with fun, encouragement, gratitude, entertainment, thoughtfulness, and creative spark!
- I am grateful & thankful for each & every-one of YOUR posts!
- It does not take an educated person to make a difference in the world! I dropped out of college in my second year to marry, so I only have a high school diploma... but I have a lifetime of learning & living & loving, which, to me, is what matters!
- You are SO right in that we are all blessed by family and friends and that we are all connected! Truer words have never been spoken!

Thanks, for reminding me of what matters most!

Blessings to you as well!

PS - I just re-read my post and it's sound like I'm .... well... I'm only 40, so dropping out of college to marry is unusual for my time. For my mom's time, it was common... but people scoffed at me. The truth is... I'm happy. My life is just the way I want it to be!

YOU, Lori, are an incredible reminder that imagination, spirit, passion, creativity, and kindness are what REALLY matter in this world! You kick A%# in business & in your field, and I admire you!

I think everyone feels the exactly the same about you Lori - a bond thru creating...there is a disappointment when your blog is visited and you haven't "posted" yet....making (I am sure) many of us come back several times until your new words of encouragement, creativity and friendship are posted. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for sharing each day.
