Thank You my New Friends

My husband sent me this photo from the courtyard at work yesterday. While temperatures here in the Valley of the Sun are not nearly as extreme as temperatures in so many areas of the country, it is cold for here.

Chandler, AZ
I've taken out my leather winter jacket, scarves, and gloves during the past few days. What I am struck by, is the gratitude I feel for our usually warm winters. It just made me stop and reflect on all of the blessings in my life. I have "met" so many wonderful women as I've browsed and hopped through blogland and I am continually amazed at the powerful connections we make. So, this morning, I just want to say thank you for stopping by. Thank you for following. Thank you for writing your wonderful blogs and for opening your heart to all of us. Have a wonderful weekend. ~Blessings, Janet

And a special Thank You goes out to Angie who I have shared before authors Living Aloha. Angie inspired me to take the 29 Day Gifts challenge and now for her 29th Gift is giving away a very special gift. Please take a moment to visit her blog, you will be so happy you did. As well as being an inspiring author, Angie is also a very talented artist.

Isn't she adorable? :-)
And she's got great taste! :-)
