Thank You

“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.” William Arthur Ward

I am grateful for all of you who read Simplicity. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to stop by, and special thanks to those who take time to leave a comment. I am amazed daily that people are actually interested in my little corner of the stamping world.

In America, we're formally celebrating gratitude today by eating until we explode. I routinely joke that I don't have enough stamps, but really, I am abundantly blessed, as are all of you who read this on a computer. Amidst our abundance, let's remember those at home and worldwide who do not have enough...enough food, enough shelter, enough peace, enough hope.

I hope our abundance moves us to share, to reach out, to help in whatever way we can, quietly and without fuss wrapping and giving a present to those in need.

Happy Thanksgiving.

  10. Thank you for your beautiful post. Spent today with family, in-laws, friends & appreciated every second of it. Thank you for sharing your thoughts & creativity with us. You inspire me! You've shown me that I don't have to create an overly embellished piece when Simplicity will achieve the same effect if not better! Happy Thanksgiving.

  12. Thank YOU for giving us our 'present' everyday. Your beautiful work and 'creative writing' add pleasure to our lives for which I know I am very thankful for. Todays post is as usual right on the button; anyone able to read and share your blog has so much to be thankful for ... which sometimes gets lost in our daily lives. Thanks for this timely reminder and hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving from across the pond :-)

  14. Because you are the Giver in Simplicity blog, you couldn't possibly "get it" why the rest of us come here every day. It's for waaaaayyyyyy more than you would think, and way more than I expected, in the beginning. There are subtle treasures in your writing, and in the Comments too. To say nothing of the tricks I've learned that have COMPLETELY changed my cardmaking style as well as my way of thinking about being old.

    Thank you, Susan, and thank you Commenters too. The daily journey here is indeed a priceless gift.
