Hello! I'm sorry to be MIA lately. I've been creating cards for a class that I'm teaching this week and I'm organizing all my cards to sell at a craft boutique this weekend AND its Ted's birthday on Friday, so I've been a bit busy. ;)

Today I was inspired by Becky Higgins' post HERE and the second part HERE. I love what she's doing and really want to incorporate it in my house somehow.

Today I was really feeling grateful. Grateful for my sweet son Alex. We were talking about an issue, on the verge of arguing, and in the middle of all that he says, "You really shouldn't feel that way Heather. You're awesome." That stopped me in my tracks. It was so sincere. I don't think it would ever get old to hear that you're awesome, (LOL) but to hear it from your 17 year old. Good stuff.

Another thing I'm grateful for is my sweet nephew, J.T. I look forward to watching him every week at swimming lessons. He absolutely LOVES the water! We have a routine when he's finished....we always go sit in the lobby area and he gets a snack from the vending machine. He always gets fruit snacks, he always loves to push the buttons, and he always loves when Aunt Heather gives him money! So for last week's class, I whipped up this card for him...
(FORGIVE the AWFUL pic, I was running late and snapped it before running out the door.) I just put a small pop dot on the back of the coin so he could easily remove his money.

So, what are you grateful for today?

That was such a sweet thing for him to say!

I also love the meaning behind the card, I'm sure it was a great surprise!
