i’m home …

the turkey is in

the lights are going up
and i’ve tried to make a list of all the little things that I’m thankful for, but it’s not happening. I feel overwhelmed today with ALL of it. I’m so, so, so thankful to be alive. sounds dumb, but it’s true. I’m home with my children. my parents are here and I am just feeling very content — and happy to be here now, soaking it ALL in.

please do the same today — soak it in, whatever it is. It might not be perfect, but then who wants perfect. let go of anything that isn’t positive today. today, focus on all that is right and good in your world.

and btw, I’m thankful for you.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving to you & your family! Thanks for you & sharing your creative spirit!

  6. Wishing you a great Thanksgiving! We are feeling overwhelmed with blessing this year too – our son slipped and fell out of the barn yesterday and only ended up with 2 broken wrists. It could’ve been SO much worse!
    Life is good!

  7. WOOOHOOO! Stacy is home on American soil. Another thing to add to my long list of things I am thankful for!
    Hope you had and amazing time and a very happy thanksgiving!

  8. I’m thankful for you, too, Stacy!
    Happy Thanksgiving and here’s to good turkey sandwiches tomorrow!

  9. Welcome Home Stacy and Happy Thanksgiving! I’m just thankful that I got thru today cooking my 1st EVER dinner for just my husband and I…and the 1st time I was away from family my WHOLE life. (We moved away to another state for his work)..I’m a pretty decent cook but for some reason it was intimidating..is that weird?? LOL Anyways, I have alot to be thankful for, but this was the highlight of the day…oh, and putting up the Xmas tree too! :) Hope your dinner was yummy!! :)

  10. Stacy, I am thankful for you. I find inspiration in your writing, and in all that you share about your life. You are a gift.

  11. Stacy – I hope you are feeling peaceful and relaxed today! I hate that overwhelming feeling and I have experienced that a lot lately so I know exactly what you mean. Can’t wait till your new book comes out! Is there any chance it will ship in time to show up wrapped under the Christmas tree?

  12. So thankful for you Stacy Julian!

  13. I am thankful you are safely home, surrounded with those you love and enjoying your own home today. Aren’t parents who come and take over with your kids just the best?!!
    I am so thankful that I got to meet you in Edmonton in April and that you inspired me to love my art, the process and those who create memories with me.
    Happy Eating Leftovers! And can you show us a picture of the lights glowing some evening? Thanks!
