Happy November! My family and I will begin our Thankful Can later this evening. In anticipation, I've been thinking about some things. And my favorite stranger-blog belongs to Meg who the other day posted a give-away if you left a comment with the positive thoughts you tell yourself when times are hard. I commented that I try to keep my faith in God and remind myself that so far, it could always be worse. And minutes after posting that comment I remembered something else.

It seems to me that sometimes we don't know why we're going thru a trial until we find a friend going thru the same thing. Have you noticed that people are put in your path who have already made it through whatever you're experiencing? I have. So maybe when we are struggling it is simply so we can help someone else later. Even if that help is "only" sympathy and a listening ear, it helps me knowing that someone made it through to the other side, and I can too. So today I am thankful for trials that make me a better person and allow me to help others.

On that note, here's a thank you card I made to kick off November.
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Ink: Old Olive, More Mustard, Early Espresso
Paper: More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Early Espresso taffeta ribbon


  1. Very well said Tanya. I hope that your trial will go quickly and you will be able to see what the purpose for it all was someday.
    Consider yourself cyber hugged.

  2. Totally loving this wonderful fall kick off card, Tanya.


Tell me what you think!
