Strawhat - OSAAT #224

Hi my friends.  I hope everyone is doing well.  I'm still in southern California visiting with my daughter and family.  I've seen the play twice and enjoyed it more last night since I wasn't as tired as I was on Wednesday night after an early wake up and a long day of traveling. We'll be going again tonight, but unfortunately my son-in-law won't be here with us.  His grandmother (90 yo) suffered a stroke on Wednesday so he flew home to be with his family at her bedside.  Prayers for them will be appreciated.  She has requested nothing to keep her alive so it's only a matter of time until she passes.  She is ready to go, but will be greatly missed by all of the family.

With Thanksgiving coming upon us soon, it is a time to reflect on all the blessings that have been bestowed upon us by a loving Heavenly Father and to give thanks for all that we have.  Our theme this week for One Stitch at a Time is Anything Goes With Thanks.  Here is my card.
