How To Say Thanks

Sometimes it's easy to say thank you, yet sometimes when gratitude is overwhelming, it can be difficult to find the words to match the deed.

I stumbled upon a link while reading one of my favourite blogs, The Happiness Project . Thank you Gretchen! Leah shows us by beautiful example just how to practice being grateful for every. little. thing. by writing thank you notes.

When I stop to think about all the little notes I would need to write to thank people in this life of mine, well, it will take me right into my next life, I am sure!

So just in case you miss out on getting a note from me, I'll thank YOU now!


I've been doing lots of creative cooking lately, trying to get out of a cooking rut, choosing the healthier options, yet I still keep falling back on the potato, a favourite of the boys in the family. The potato gets a lot of criticism, however it's is actually quite nutritious and is great for people feeling under stress. Who knew?

The journal page is an 'oil flower'.


  1. Potatoes are good, but i heart sweet potato - mash, chips, boiled, stir-fried,baked, with pasta, cold as 'em!

  2. I have always loved potatoes. Is it the Irish in me? Thank you Patti for being here and sharing yourself and your art with us. Blessings to you.

  3. It is us who should be thanking YOU- for all your beautiful art and words, You have taught us a lot.
    Thank You.

  4. And thank YOU, Patti, for the birthday wish!
