Abundant Overflow

Happy Sunday!

Papers: SU! cs, Basic Grey dp

Cornucopias always remind me of abundant overflow!   I always want to be thankful!!  Yes, life is not perfect and there are struggles, many at times, but that is not my focus.  I choose to look up, not down, and see the brighter side of the situation!   Thankfulness changes the heart, softens it and that is a very good thing!   Praying you all may see many reasons in your own lives to give thanks!  Always!!

Abundant Blessings to you all!

This is wonderful! Hope you and the rest of your family is doing great. Sorry for not been around leaving comments lately - but it's been too much on my plate for some time. Now things are back to "normal" - and that gives me more time for the fun stuff! Have a wonderful Sunday! Kram - Anki
