"Conscious of our Treasures"

 I really love today's quote that I found for the prompt.  I think it has so much truth in it.  Some of the darkest times of my life were when I was too self-involved, felt sorry for myself, etc.  I think that gratitude truly helps us to live and be aware of the precious moments we have each day.  If you are overwhelmed with life, feeling discouraged or sad, I encourage you to take a step back and just find the treasures in your life.  Focus on what you are blessed with and let it take away the anxiety and worry and fear over things you can't control.

Yesterday was a pretty good day.  I'm feeling a bit crazy over all I want to get done before Thursday (see, I need to read above and take my own advice!)  I didn't have my nephews yesterday which was probably a good thing.  Several of my family have been sick with colds and I have been fighting it, but it hasn't turned into one yet.  Today is the best I've felt in two days, so hopefully it is going to pass me by with nothing more than some extreme tiredness!  I'm going to start on the pie crusts today-the cookie ones, and I can't wait! I just love this time of year!

Here is the template for today!  Just a few more left for the month!  Remember on December 1st, all links from November will deactivated, so grab the templates you want now!

Thanks again. I treasure my scrapbook layouts - just had > 20 printed and love that I have captured and printed those memories and filed them in their albums.
