Belated Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I was hoping to post on Wednesday, but it turned into kind of a screwy day, and we traveled to Buffalo for the holiday. But, I wanted to wax on a little bit about the things I'm thankful for.

I'm so thankful the I have Jesus in my life, and that He has given me the gift of salvation. (Curious about this? Ask me more!) I'm so thankful that He has his hand on my life and that I know that ultimately, God is in control.

I'm also thankful for my family. My husband is so the perfect man for me, and my kids are full of fun and blessing every day! Also, my parents, my brother and sister-in-law, and my husband's family are wonderful people, and it's great to have them in our lives.

I'm thankful that I got to play football in the rain on Thursday morning with my hubby, Dad, and church family.

I'm thankful that I get to work just enough during the week, at a job I genuinely like. And, I'm thankful for the lessons that I learn through working with people.

I'm thankful that I live in a city that offers so much to families, and for all the mom friends I've met!

We have a great Bible study with wonderful people, and I love the community that we have.

Of course, I'm thankful that I can knit, and for the Internet that lets us all share our knitting and our lives with each other.

And, at this moment, I'm thankful that I've won a prize at A day in the life's blog!

Oh, and I'm thankful for early bird shopping on Friday. I went with my girlfriend, and we had TWO HOURS to stand in line and visit. I know, it sounds crazy. But, to carry on a conversation without children interrupting AND getting great bargains - you just can't beat it!

With all the time in the car this weekend, you would think I would have a ton of knitting done! I finished a dishcloth and one small child's hat. One more hat to go, and then I'll evaluate time and decide who else is getting knitterly goodness for Christmas.

I'm looking for a free pattern for cable mittens to make with the malabrigo Anne sent me. Any ideas?

I too am Thankful for my Salvation! God is so Good and he has brought me through so much, and walks with me daily!

I'm Thankful I found your blog!

I think that Fetching is cabled - there are several links for free fingerless mitt patterns in a post I did recently from a contest. Uh.. if you go under "Sunday Bloglines" it was not this past weekend, but the one before I think? Those are ones a lot of folks seem to enjoy though, but I've not knit them myself!

congratulations on your win in km's contest. i'd never done "black friday" shopping before, but i may have been hooked. i went with girlfriends and yes, good company and bargains is very hard to beat. the only thing that would have been better would have been yarn bargains!

I loved reading this post! And I agree with you...I am SO thankful for the Lord saving me. :) As far as the cabled mittens...the only pattern I know is Fetching. Malibrigo? Yummy yarn! :)
Glad to hear you had such a great Thanksgiving weekend with the family.
Now, have a great week and Knit On!

Blessings to you,
Kris :)
