Thankful Thursdays.....

I mentioned last week that my friend Rachel is hosting Thankful On Paper (or T.O.P) this Holiday season and I am for sure participating!
Because I am somewhat of a rule I would like to thank the following 3 ladies because 
(sounds like I'm giving my Oscar speech)
All of these women have had some kind of impact on my life within the last year or so. Possibly without realizing it and without intending to.
That's what makes them all the more magical.
Without further is the short version of my thanks.........

- aka "Mrs.No.17cherrytreelane" - Thank You for being you. 
A strong Christian woman who is committed to her family, her faith and her friends. You have inspired me to begin and keep up with this 'blog thing' and challenge me to better in so many ways.
Through both our blogging and 'real life' friendship I have been inspired, encouraged and convicted by your words.
Thank you for always being true to yourself and your beliefs.
That kind of conviction is encouraging to the rest of us fence dwellers.
Thank you for also helping me to realize I AM kind of crafty!!

I don't even have the words to describe how your blog has changed my perspective on so many things and put so much into perspective for my.
I am in awe of your ability to be so candid and frank.
Your courageous attitude towards your 'crazy' inspires me to embrace my own and to think more outside the box.
Although we are not 'close friends' and are more accquaintances, I wanted to let you know that I appreciate you!
and THANKS so much for the florist recommendation!!
Obviously he did an AWESOME job!

 Hands down you were the surprise friendship of 2009. and I love you so much for that.
Thank you SO much for all your help with the wedding crafts and craziness.
Thank you for not going away after the wedding and for remaining a good friend! I admire so much about you and you give me strength when I need it the most and probably when you least realize it.
Thank you for listening to me bitch and moan and for always encouraging as well as challenging.
You are such a precious gem!!

You ladies have come to mean so much to me and although I don't see or speak to you all every day or even every week you are always in my thoughts and prayers.
Thanks for all that you have shown me and inspired in me!!

  6. Aww I love the idea of thanking multiple people at once each week. I had a hard time choosing ONLY four people to be openly thankful for.

    This was such a sweet post. How nice it is that you have such a wonderful support system.

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Thanks for sharing about three of your wonderful friends. I have been inspired to share about more than one next week myself. I have so many people I would love to Thank On Paper, four just isn't enough.
