Today was a good day. It was a very good day.
Sharon, Heather and I went out shopping. Then we met Ashley for lunch.
Then we went to a local shop called "Twas the Month Before Christmas". I love that store. It is so warm and cozy and smells nice :) She used to only open the month before Christmas, hench the name. But now she is open most of the year. It is a local craft shop. The lady makes most of the crafts her self and she is a beautiful doll maker.
Ok so any way I got a gift card for her store on my 40th birthday...a few years ago, oops. I used it today and she told me that they were moving and changing there name after Christmas. So good thing I used it now.I read on Jan Marie's blog about her grandmother and a nest she found. She said that if you have a birds nest on your Christmas tree its suppose to give you luck for the new year. I loved this. Well it just happened to be that the craft store had one. I know its not a real bird's nest (we do have a real one with actual robyn's eggs in it but it is in a display case) but it will do. Isn't it pretty? It is even sparkly.
I also picked up this beautiful angel. I have had my eye on this for a while. But every time I think of getting it, I think that I can make it. Which I can ;) but I haven't yet, so I picked her up.
I am still not into the Christmas spirit yet. But going into that store sure helped. I think I need to go in there everyday, lol.
I met my girlfriend for hot chocolate tonight. I haven't seen her for awhile, it was good to get together. I'm surprised we didn't get kicked out, we were there for 2 hours. We shared tears, understanding and friendship.
1. Spending time with my girls
2. The joy of seeing other creative people and their works of art.
3. Listening and talking to a friend in need.
4. Knowing that we all have differences and that we can discuss them, and accept them.
So what are you thankful for today?
