Giving Thanks and a Little Giveaway!
I like to take a little time out each year and write letters in November to those I am especially thankful for. Those people who day in and day out keep me sane and who I cannot imagine living without. I started doing this a few years ago, when I lost some family members and realized that I never took the opportunity to tell them that I loved them, that I cared about them, that they had a profound impact on my life.
The first year I wrote these letters, I was surprised about how challenging it was to pour my grateful heart out onto paper, even to those closest to me. My list of recipients was short, not because I am not thankful for many, but because these letters were hard to write. But, each year it gets a bit easier and my list gets a bit longer. I have become very fond of this tradition I have started for myself and each year I have a different card designed and made for me. For the first couple years it was a kind co-worker who made cards on the side and this year I had the above cards made by a dear friend.
As a thanks to you wonderful readers, I am giving away 5 of these super cute cards designed and made by my sweet friend Denise so that you can send a few thankful letters to your loved ones. To enter: leave a comment about who you are thankful for by November 9th, 2012 at midnight central time.
