Grateful for YOU...

This week's challenge at Heart2Heart is all about Gratitude - the feeling of thankfulness and readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.  I often ask the people in my family to tell me three good things - these things can be something that happened in their day, a funny joke, a book they read, being happy about doing good in a subject at school - just about anything counts as long as its something that makes them feel good.  I started it long ago to help us focus on cultivating an "attitude of gratitude" and keep our hearts and minds positive.  While my family might groan a bit when I ask them to do it, I've yet to see someone walk away grumpy after focusing on the good in their life.  Try it this week with your family members and see what kind of responses you get - the answers can be quite illuminating as to what is going on in your loved ones lives!  (Feel free to share your three good things in the comments section!)

Here at Heart2Heart we are grateful to be part of the Close to my Heart family - now an even bigger sisterhood as we are joined by Australia and New Zealand!  We are grateful for the beautiful products and awesome tools (so, so grateful for my Cricut) we get to share with our customers.  Most of all we are grateful for YOU, the people who play along with us during the week and share your time and talent with us on this blog!  Your linky contributions are what keep this challenge blog going and we are very grateful to the many who play along!  THANK YOU!

Now, we'd like to share our interpretation of the gratitude challenge with you.  First up is our talented November guest designer, Hansi Brittain.

My family is my greatest blessing, and this year I am especially grateful for our home remodel (even though it is totally stressing us out right now!). Of course I also love CTMH & H2H!

grateful for my family. i moved away from home almost two years ago...and now i don't see them nearly as often as i would like to. but i love sending them cards thru snail mail -- it makes them feel not so far away sometimes. :)
