A Million Thanks

 As some of our daily things return to a new normal, what are you thankful for?  

One of the things that I'm grateful for today is being able to physically return to attending Sunday School and church worship services. While we've been blessed with alternate ways of worshiping during the restricted times, it's just not the same as sitting together, praying together, and sharing concerns or praises with each other. 

Today's featured card is an image from Rachel Ann Miller ~ her Giraffe & Bird ~ which you all know how I LOVE giraffes!  I've added my thank you sentiment (from Penny Black, Grateful Heart) to this card and prepared it to be mailed to one of my church members who I'm grateful for.  I'd encourage you today to think about something/someone that you are thankful that has returned to 'normal'.  Maybe they would like to know you appreciate them too!

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
