make the path more pleasant

Happy Thanksgiving, Brenda! You are one of the blessings I'm counting today, one of many many blessings! But now I have to head off to the kitchen and get to work!

Happy Thanksgiving, Brenda! I love seeing your scrapbook journal! It is sort of what I envisioned, but so much more! Very neat!

Have the bestest day!

Happy Thanksgiving, Brenda! Lovely post...the journal is beautiful!! (What kind of glue do you use to get the pages to lie so smooth? And what kind of journal is that, it lies so nice and flat. I have seen some at Michael's here but they are way expensive, being such heavy paper, more for water color or paint of some sort).

Yesterday Hubby was able to get off work early (everyone was given an early home day)so we ran some errands. Coming out of the store we were so awe struck...the sunset was one of the most gorgeous we have ever seen...we rarely see them here in NC due to the trees anyway, but this was fairly high in the sky and if we had only had our camera with us (but it would not have done justice to what our eyes could see anyway). It was one such that even including those years we lived in Hawaii, only one other even approached such beauty (and that was in the high desert of WA. state years ago). We felt we had been given a blessing in just seeing this yesterday!!

Blessings, Elizabeth
