Paper Doll Gratitude Challenge



In the PTI PaperDolls blogging group, we have challenges every other Thursday here. Please come over and join in. They can really inspire you and get your mojo going! Or help you find it if it's gone missing :-)...

Many of us have truly come to realize the blessings we have in our lives. Family, friends, God, and even each other. Most of the Paper Dolls have never met yet we all came together, without ever actually discussing the *need* to do so, when one of us was hurting. And, I know we'd do it again.

So, our challenge was to create a card expressing "gratitude"... I decided my post would get mushy enough, so the card needed to be a bit more fun! This is a play on words "Thanks a million"...

I have a *million* friends to give this to... when my mom passed away in October I was completely and totally cared for by my very large group of friends. They just all stepped in and cared for us. Never asking what needed to be done, never expecting a thank you. Here I am months later, still needing help for things and they still are here.

I am blessed.

You are too. Really.

Say thank you to your friends and family. Hug your little ones. Tell your loved ones how much you appreciate them.

One day it will matter very much!
