Then, I received an email from the Jennifer McGuire regarding my recent Hero Arts card that was published on Create Stamping. I basically get several stamps from my wish list being taken off the list, thanks to Hero Arts publication incentive program. I thought I'll get one free set and I am already happy about that. But several?? Oh gosh, I was busting the dance move in front of hubby after I ran up the stairs yelling to let him know. ;) LOL... Hubby call it happy stamp dance.
I organized all the stamps right away and only took out the ones that I need to use for my DT assignment, so I wouldn't feel overwhelm. Then, I received beautiful images from A Day For Daisies for my DT works. All in one afternoon. And, suddenly I just felt like crying. I mean, literally my heart feels like it could burst and I was filled with so much gratefulness.
It was such a strong feeling. Truly, card making has brought me so much joy this past year. I meet some fabulous, kind, & sweet new friends, I get to work with generous companies, I get do what I love, and I get to work with beautiful images all the time. How can I not but take a moment and say a prayer of thanks for all these blessings.
Then there is you, who chose to follow my blog. When I lost my foster dad in March, you all keep me in your prayers, when I lost my job in April you send me encouragement notes, when I received great news about DT, you celebrated with me. So thankful for all of these.
For this reason, I feel the need to express the gratefulness that I feel in my heart. I know, many of these things are just small things. But they are small things that fill me with so much gratitude. It's an amazing feeling and I thank you all for being part of it all. And, special thanks to my mom, hubby, and brothers who always cheering me on. Who always believe in me. Oh goodness... I am all sappy again.
Simply said grateful heart = joyful heart. You're still with me... reading this long post? Thank you. :) How about a card to end this long post? I wish you all many happy wishes.
May your days be filled with many things that fill your heart with gratefulness. Hugs.
