It's Sunday. Thanksgiving 2009 has come and gone. Wow. That was fast.
We had much to be thankful in our home. All of our family together. Dad working hard to prepare and cook the meal. Sisters all pitching in to help. Auntie Syl contributing side dishes. And of course, Mom at her usual spot leading us in prayer before the meal. Other than mom still healing from her surgery (post surgery pathology reports cancer was stage 1 and fully contained and removed during surgery!), no one was ill and little awkward comments didn't escalate into arguments or anger.
I left my parents house not just stuffed with the turkey feast, but filled with love, respect and gratitude for being born into a family that is so loving and supportive no matter what adversity is thrown at us or any differences that might surface. I am so blessed.
The rest of the weekend flew by as I spent it doing chores between catching the soft light of the early afternoon to photograph pieces to upload to Etsy and converting all my listings to free North America shipping (from now until 12/15! on both sites!).
Here's a sample of some of the pieces that went up over the weekend on both afotogirl and redgemstudio:
New photo pendants on black Scrabble-like tiles over at afotogirl
And on redGem, you'll find these new earrings
Until next time. Peace, health and light!
