What greater blessings


We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts
are conscious of our treasures. 
~Thornton Wilder



If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness.  
It will change your life mightily.  
~Gerald Good

What greater blessings to give thanks for at a family gathering
than the family and the gathering.
~Robert Brault


Counting my blessings
faith
family
friends
and treasuring it all!

Wishing you so much Joy,
~Maria

My darling and wonderful Maria,

Oh how charmed I was to see your message last night. I was out all day so I was unable to visit until now.

I had tears in my eyes as you described your Thanksgiving. Our daddies are determined, aren't they? My dad has been gone for 25 years, but even with lung cancer and a small oxygen tank, HE WOULD WALK AROUND THE BLOCK with his tank and he literally kept GOING. Our Thanksgivings are quiet and sweet, with only the memories of celebrations past with our lively family members out in California and New York City.

Your package should arrive soon my friend; I hope you enjoy them. Excuse the small box, but my husband wanted to be economical and so there isn't a lot of extra frill (which I would love to add!) but much love is packaged up for you, and much gratitude for your business....

MUCH LOVE TO YOU! Anita

Oh sweet Maria,

What a kind and wonderful comment to come to tonight! AND I AM SO HAPPY that you like the cards. My husband wants to keep things simple, and if I could, I would go ALL OUT with the packaging, but I am so glad that you like my cards. YOU ARE JUST SO PRECIOUS DEAREST!!! HAPPY WEEK And I am so honored that you would keep a card for yourself!!!! Anita
