Web of Gratitude


This weeks soul journal lesson is the "Web of..." 'Love' is the original prompt. Like a few of my other soul sister's, I changed the lesson to "Gratitude".

I have a lot to be grateful for this week!

Fergies, where I waitress, that had the fire back in September, opened for business again.
We have had a terrific week, which means I made nice tips.

Craig has been having a good week!

But....
My MOST exciting news...I have been given the opportunity to create "Jesus Blessing the Children" in Stained Glass.

I met with the church group Thursday, they are going to be a great group to work with. The commission is for a 7 ft x 7ft. install.

So we shall watch the progression of this project, probably over the next 6-10 months, depending on how fast my crate of glass will get here, and how many portraits we decide to place within the drawing.

I am thankful for what I have been given this week...well every week actually...
I have to say I am very blessed.

I may not like webs (or the spiders that come on them) but this is the prettiest darn web I've ever seen. Love the glitter, there just isn't enough glitter in the world!

I'm so happy for you! Sounds like a fun project and what an honor to be selected. I too have a lot to be grateful for -- knowing you and the other soul sisters and sharing this journey is top on my list! What an amazing group we have.

Your web of gratitude is fantastic. Tis the season for us all to stop and reflect on what we are grateful for. Each night my son and I talk about what made us happy in the day we take turns listing three things. We both have lots to be grateful for.

Thank you my dear for playing!
