Thankful Blue Monday

Hooray! It is Blue Monday and I am ready for it this week!

Please visit Sally, the host of Blue Monday by clicking on the logo at the left. Check out what others are posting for Blue Monday and join in the fun!

Along with many other bloggers this month, I am attempting to post each day, naming something for which I am thankful.

Today I am thankful for Kim. Kim will become my daughter-in-law next year. Kim will become my grandchild's mother in March. I haven't thought to ask her if she would object to me posting her photo here so I won't show you her beautiful face yet, but I do have this photo which she shared on Facebook.
Doesn't my grandson look healthy and happy? Photobucket

I was going to post pictures of some of my recent baby purchases, but since I've been so busy and not creative with Blue Monday posts lately, I am going to be stingy and save some for other weeks. Besides, this one photo best fits my thankful heart today.
The ornament is from Bronner's in Frankenmuth, Michigan. If you are ever in that area, it is a huge store and a fun and friendly environment. I ordered this online and received it the following week with a thank you note for my order with a candy cane attached. That was a sweet (pun intended) touch.

Hi Knitty,

I love meeting new people. I am Yoli from deep south Texas. I have enjoyed visiting your blog. CONTRATULATIONS on the grand baby. I'm a Christian single mom of 2 teen kids, working fulltime, and sewing during my spare time. Please come on over for a visit.

What a great way to introduce us to your grandson. Perfect in every way.

I have been to Bonner's, probably 20 yrs ago. I was searching online a couple of years ago & much to my delight, I found their website. I love shopping with them online, but nothing will take the place of a real shopping experience in the store. Next to Hancocks of Paducah for fabric, Bonner's would be running second. Both truly heaven for me.

Awwwww!!! Kim's little baby belly! :) It won't be long and it won't be so little!

Karen said...

A new baby on the way...now that's something to be thankful for!! How very very exciting!

My husband has begged me for years to take a trip to Bronners! It would take us a long time to get there (coming from Pa.) so I have not given into it yet. Maybe next year I'll agree to it!

Hi Knitty, congrats on the coming event. What can be more precious that a new baby, Mommy to be looks fine. I have been to Bronners many times. My family love to take me there when I am visiting then in MI. An amazing store to say the least. I have some beautiful fruit Christmas ornaments from there. Your baby ornament is adorable.

Hugs, Jeanne
