Today I woke up thinking that sometimes we take things for granted and focus too much on the negative, when really there is much to be thankful for. This is not a quilting post per se, but I think it could serve as inspiration for a quilt.
I am grateful for the best husband ever!
For my wonderful kids (and their spouses!)
For good friends
For good health
For my faith
For a warm bed
For a hot shower
For my truck
For songbirds outside my window
For bright sunny days
For my morning coffee
For the companionship of cats
For my cozy home
For running water
For the ability to express myself without fear
For my Linux system and laptop (and for the teachings of my son)
For my books–and the ability to read
my fabric stash–and for knowing how to quilt
For a sense of humor
I would name this quilt: “What I Am Grateful For,” or “The Grateful Quilt.” Perhaps folks out there can provide ideas about converting some of these thoughts into patterns or blocks that could be put together to express it. How about it?
