I'm not who I was.
Tis the season to be thankful!
(Although I’m pretty sure we should be thankful in every season.)
Rather than post daily thoughts of thanksgiving, I decided to take a more visual route: a collage.
This collage represents so many things which I am thankful for, and I am sure there is still so much that will be left out. Quite honestly, the perfectionist in me doesn’t want to post it at all because I know that it will fall short and people/things/events will be left out. However, if I don’t post it at all, then everyone and everything would be left out… now that I have confessed the shortcoming, I’m ok with posting it 🙂
I shall do my best to explain. (There is no significance to the order other than that’s just how I got things to fit). Now would be the time to break out your go-go-gadget eyes, or some powerful glasses. (Or you may be able to click on the pic to make it bigger… I’m honestly not sure).
