Happy Thanksgiving!

What a wild and crazy week it was! I had so much to do and the week flew by. I am blessed to be off this week, so I am going to slow the pace a bit. I have so very much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Aside from all of the material blessings, I have an amazing family composed of folks to whom I am related by blood or by marriage, as well as those who are my family because of a bond of mutual love and caring. As if that wasn't enough, I have a sense of peace about my life and my faith in God's love for me.
Here is just a glimpse of last week. First is the new color combo for this week. Check out Sami's blog for prize info and lots of great ideas. I used a fun rosette on this card (made some of them in the card classes I have been attending - serious fun with gals who are anything but serious). I used SP & Company Round Sentiments I.The next thing to show you is a quilt that I put together late last week. Our pastor and his husband left Sunday after 11 years of ministry. As part of our efforts to honor them and send them off with a special memento of their time here, we each created a quilt square with a special message. I even stamped on some of them, which was fun. Unfortunately, we didn't have a lot of time, and not everyone created a quilt square. But the quilt came together beautifully, and I know that they will enjoy it. I haven't done much sewing lately and have missed it. I might just start doing some more stamping on quilts.The remainder of the week was filled with quizzes and tests and grading, a Thanksgiving potluck feast with my Flint Hills PFLAG family, and a trip to Wichita (100+ miles away) for a recheck with my oncologist - just good news, so it was a lovely trip. All in all, it was a good week.
I hope that all of you have a beautiful Thanksgiving. We (DH Alan, DD Bree, and me) will be spending the day with our love-created family, and I know that we will have so much fun. My DD Sarah and her husband and kids will go to his parents. Hopefully I will get to see them over Christmas break Sarah emailed my some pics of the kids today. DS Andrew and his wife and daughter will be with her family, as always. And my youngest, Alli, has chosen to stay "home" and relax in her apartment instead of coming home. I think she's afraid that I will put her to work if she comes here. It's her choice, and I hope that she has a relaxing day. I love them all so very much. And I love you, my friends, and wish you all of the best that life has to offer.
