6 Days Left To Enter The Gratitude Give-Back

Yesterday we drove into New York to meet Kate at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

We spent the afternoon together, sharing all the beauty to be found in this special place.

Today I am feeling especially grateful for Art...
...for artists through the generations and for the ability to appreciate the beauty in the details.

...and I am grateful for time.
Time to share with loved ones.

...and Grace.

Give Back...

In addition to the Victorian nightgown shown above
the winner will receive these four vintage photographs that I found this summer in an old photo album.

 I did a short post on them called "Aunt Nancy" here.

I will continue adding prizes to this Gratitude Give-Back all week....there will be seven prizes for the lucky winner!

Thank you for sharing all the things that you are grateful for! 

Today I will be sorting through more things to add to this
600th post Gratitude Give Back!
Stay tuned!

Dear Laura,
I am so envious. You are so lucky to live so close to the city! I love the Metropolitan Museum so much and I love NYC. Not to live in, but to visit is heaven! When Katie was at Sarah Lawrence, we got at least two good trips to NYC a year (can you believe that I had never been to NYC before she went to college?). I had been to Venezuela and a lot of other cool places but not NYC. I fell in love with the city. I miss it! We have hardly been back. Waah. Now I am feeling sorry for myself!

I need to be sure to sign up for your giveaway. I love that nightgown. It would not fit me but I would hang it on the wall :-)

I want you to know that I think of you and your mom often. Hope she is comfortable.

My Dear SWEET Laura,
I am truly grateful to share the love of God with family and friends.
To share the joy, laughter, and all the blessings HE gives us, is surely something wonderful to be grateful for!
Life is too short to spend time worrying and pondering over things that might be or could`ve been.
The PRESENT is a gift from God-
Have a Blessed day, Laura-
