Gratitude is the Best Attitude

"Gratitude is the best attitude"
 - unknown
Today is the first day of November.
A wonderful month to celebrate what we are thankful for...
Not only on the 25th
but today and every day...
So, today I'm starting with -
Warm woolly sweaters
a cup of hot coffee
an unexpected hug
the crisp autumn air...ahhh,
and a crackling fireplace...
and of course, all of my bloggy friends!
I am truly thankful for each and everyone of you
that I have met along the way...

how about you - what are you thankful for?

Oooooo... I so love wool sweaters! Nobody seems to wear them around here so I feel out of style! Oh well, I'm not giving them up.

Such a sweet illustration-- your work just has that certain "something"! Delightfully charming.

What a sweet idea. It would be great to have a full month of gratitude. Here is a blog *hug* ;)

I too lovet the wool sweater. Let's see, and: cowboy boots, a vivacious daughter who is growing up so beautifully, my crazy menagerie of animals, and ability to ride horses weekly. Oh and, the ability to create with such wonderful blogger friends.

Great illo, Heather. Wonderful job on the details and as always your gift for capturing just the right mood or expression - and you CREATED TODAY!

Gathering with friends and family, the sentimental and reflective tone of the season warms my heart! And of course, I'm grateful for the cheerful illustrations that you share! :o)

cooler weather-
crisp blue skies
the courage to go to a concert alone tonight!
sweats
gas logs to light up as soon as it's cool enough
finding your blog today!
