The Sisterhood challenge ...

... today's challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters is hosted by Terri Snode (Terri's Cards 'N More).  We are doing something a little different today.  When we have a month where there is a "5th week" ... that week's challenge will be dedicated to what we are calling a "Sister's Social".   Today Terri has focused our "social time" on being GRATEFUL!  Please stop over and check it out!  She has created a beautiful Gratitude Journal and the thought behind it is awesome!!

You don't actually have to create anything ... you can simply pop in, leave a comment about what you are grateful for today and just say Hello!!  We will be grateful to have you stop by for a visit and share with us what you are feeling today!!

I decided to make up a little "reminder" card for someone who is just so overwhelmed with life right now ... I thought she might need a reminder to step back and look around!  Be GRATEFUL for what you have ... not what you do not have!!  We all have moments like that where we think our lives are just so bad ... but look around ... there is always someone else dealing with a heck of a lot more than we are at that time!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I have to say I am SO GRATEFUL for all the wonderful friends I have made here in Blogland!  That means YOU!!  Happy Day my Friend!!
