52 weeks of gratitude..........week 1 & 2

on flickr........I am in a group called 52 weeks of gratitude........I thought it would be fun to post them here too. I didn't start last week so I'll post week 1 & goes.......

this is my first photo for the 52 weeks of gratitude series. I am very grateful for my family. Here are my boys at the beach in Florida on a vacation we took. They have both turned into such fine young husband and I are so proud of both of them. The oldest is in med school studying to be a Dr. and the youngest is in the seminary studying to be a Youth Pastor. One is going to save lives, the other is going to save souls.


I am grateful for my creativity. I have always loved to create things ~ even as a little girl I learned to crochet from my older neighbor lady. I love to make homemade gifts and cards. I get my best creative ideas in the middle of the night and if I don't have a pad and pencil by the bed I will get up and write them down. Creating and being creative is very relaxing and uplifting to me.

I found these antique photo paints at an antique shop. They were never opened......I may have to be the first to try them out.
