Thankful Thursday

Time To Be Thankful

The last couple of days have been a whirl wind for me. Lots of up and downs, ok mostly downs. From being sick, and not feeling well, my knee giving me just too much pain lately, then all this work piling up, one thing after another going wrong, it began to feel like i couldn't breathe anymore. I just wanted to cry. Ok so i did cry. But then tonight, i decided i can't let things control me, and i was. Things go wrong, people mess up, and i can't change what's happened, only how i react to them.

Then a friend, Michelle (aka michellescharmworld) actually she was someone i met before i started selling on etsy, sent me a convo, she had thanked me in her blog, because i was the person who first inroduced her to etsy, and helped her get started there. It was such a surprise, such a kind thing for her to do. Sure it was simple in a way, just a thank you and a mention, but in the mess of what has been the last 2 days, it's the first nice thing anyone has done for me. And i thought, i should pay it forward. Instead of wallowing in my own pity, and stressing out about what is to come, why not give thanks to what has been, to what i have been given and the friends i have made in the past year.

Since i couldnt get a treasury to honor them all, i made my own and posted it above. They are the friends i am thankful for. They are my fellow etsy peeps! I couldnt show all them here, because i have met so many wonderful people in the year i have been on etsy. This is just a small sampling.

From Sarah and her pimpin ways, Bella as our mother hen who watches after all of us, Donna who i swap ideas and patterns with, Sabre who always makes me giggle! Raven who brings out my crazy (but will not admit to naughty ) side. Jackie who i know i can always bounce things off of. Silly Kim, who constantly challenges my skills with snowmen on sleds. Kimber, one of the first i met on etsy. Vol,Cozy, Celebrate, and Unique who i can always rely on for support and kind words. Christina with her yummy goodies! lol Everyone really on the hearts thread (you know who you are! ) are all such wonderful people. And to many others who have been there along the way! I am thankful and greatful for you all and what you bring to my life every day!

Thank you for reminding me every day, its good to be alive, its great to have friends, laugh often, and be thankful for what we do have.

Oh MK (((((hugs)))) to my dear sweet friend. You bring so much joy to my life and I always look forward to your posts and your etsy contests. You are truly a wonderful, one-of-a-kind lady and I treasure you so much.

I am sad to think of you having a good cry though I know that it often helps to refresh ourselves through tears. You know I'm here if you ever need to talk. I will do whatever I can to help. Sounds like you have your spunk back now and for that I am happy!!

You are so sweet to include me in your thankful post. I, too, am so thankful to you. You are so much to so many people. I just adore you!! Much love, dear MK!! Rhonda

What a sweetheart you are to all MK!!! I have come into the heart thread and just read and laughed without saying a word. You, Kim, Sarah and everyone else just seem to always be hamming it up. After being laid off and thinking my world was coming to an end I came in the thread and your convo to me made such a difference. You always see the light at the end of the tunnel. You truly are a glass half full kind of girl. I am so thankful for meeting you on etsy and I am sure I speak for all of us when I say "We are here for your too."
