Thankful Cactus

Years ago my Mom gave me a piece of a Christmas Cactus that belonged to my Aunt Linnea. My Mom has had her cactus as long as i can remember. ..and as long as I can remember I have have had this in my home. My children grew up with this cactus and it never ceases to amaze me with it's beauty. It generally blooms at thanksgiving time. This year I have been so busy at the quilt shop, that my plants have been a "bit" neglected. So last night as I rushed in from the shop to go to a class, I see this profusion of beauty out of the corner of my eye. My Thankful cactus is covered with blooms and it stops me in my tracks. So I take a moment to think of all the things I am thankful for, and the list is endless. Mostly I am thankful for a loving God who sends us constant reminders, and sometimes stops us in our tracks, to remind us of all we have to be grateful for. So today I am thankful. As I am thinking about all I have to be grateful for, I am tearing up and since I have to work soon and I didn't bring extra mascara, Suffice it to say that I am overwhelmed with the love that is shown to me on a daily basis. I am truly a blessed women. Thank you to all of you who bless my life and make me smile.
I love you too!
