We are wrapping up the month of October at TIME OUT with Challenge #69, a beautiful Inspired By Words Challenge which is all about an attitude of gratitude:
'Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart'
We are graced with the wonderfully talented Karren Johnson of KarrenJ - Stamping Stuff as our Guest Designer. Her designs are fantastic, her coloring is incredible, and her kind and encouraging comments on the creations of others are wonderful. Check out her wonderful blog for a real treat and some great inspiration.
The holiday I love most that we celebrate in the U.S. is Thanksgiving. To me, it is a lovely time of celebration and tradition in which a heart full of gratitude is the center of attention. To many, it is a day to watch football and shop at 3:00 AM, but not for me. It's a day to take TIME OUT to spend with family and friends, to savor the scents and think about the blessings in our lives. It's a hard day for so many as well for so many reasons, as so many holidays and everydays can be, so it's also a day and a time to give of yourself in whatever way you can to be of service to others.
Here is my take on the inspiration:
Please head on over to the Time Out Challenge Blog and take a look at what my awesome design teammates have created for your inspiration. Then consider the inspiration words, and play along with us at Time Out. I am grateful that you stopped by today.
