~Welcome Thanksgiving 2012~

Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. Psalm 100:4

To turkey and stuffing, FAMILY, grandbabies....and lots of craziness as we wade through piles of orders in between the fatigue and the blessings...the laughter of my sweet staff, and the blessing of a husband who pitches in as soon as he steps through the door after HIS 12-hour day at the studio, the kitchen and the laundry room. He is my greatest blessing. I thank God for him each and every day. He is the epitome of what a great human being is, and I am lucky to get to share life with him~

To all my dear customers: the old, the new, and the future....may you enjoy the Blessings of Thanksgiving, however you spend it~

~Thankful For My Glass~

November: ~Thoughts of the many blessings to be thankful for. Every year there are more and more things I'm so grateful for. God is so good!

 ~The anticipation of the first snowfall....always brings memories of snowsuits, mittens, building snowmen, Christmas lists and waiting for Santa!

~Fear and excitement for the barrage of jewelry orders that flood the inbox. You hope and pray for them...and when they come and you can't leave the computer because they're coming in so fast that you keep printing and printing them...answering emails....remembering the 'special details' customers add in emails after they've ordered...Oh My!!

I ended up sitting in church Sunday morning, praying that God will give me the energy I need to get through the next 6 weeks. With a compromised immune system, Graves brain runs a hundred-miles-an-hour...but my body gets to a point that it screams, "Whooooaaaaaa. I need to rest". Try getting that across to a woman who's a professed workaholic, A-Type personality who loves what she does. I faithfully pop vitamins, protein shakes, veggies....but when my body screams at me...I've finally learned to listen, sit down with a cup of tea or coffee, and breathe.

So this morning my wish for each of you is that you take the time to stop, breathe...and be grateful for the glass that you have...appreciating whatever is in it~
