Being Thankful

I've seen a few posts this week about being thankful this week and I really like the idea so here goes, even though its a bit late:

  • I have the best Mum in the world
  • I'm tough enough to survive the things life has thrown at me
  • I have a good brain and learnt how to use it
  • I have been able to recognise some of the life changing opportunities that have crossed my path
  • I was taught to knit as a child (thanks Mum)
  • I was allowed to spend my pocket money on the Busy Needles partwork magazine
  • I got over my fear of the sewing machine and started quilting
  • I discovered how much social media has to offer (there is more to it than porn and nastiness)
  • I joined the London Modern Quilt Guild
  • I went back to school at the age of 40.

I love your list Shevvy. We all have much to be thankful for.

I have a terrific Mum too.

yep, we should go for a day of thanksgiving as well
UK culture too focussed on moaning ( although I am particulary talented in that area)
