Today I am thankful for my faith. I am not sure where I would be without it. My faith is a daily part of my life. My beliefs guide my daily decisions in every part of my existence. I know am blessed because of my faith. It lifts me, and helps to make sense of the hard things. It helps me to know why I am here on earth, where I am going when I am done, and what I need to do to get there.
I am thankful to God for his beautiful plan of happiness for his children on earth. For the Savior who gave us the Atonement so that God’s plan for his children would be complete. I will do all I can to make sure I am following the Savior’s teachings daily in my life. The greatest comfort is that when as humans we make mistakes, the Lord is there to lift us up, help us see the better path and guide us to it!
“As we express our gratitude,
we must never forget
that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them.”
-John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Well, I can’t think of a great transition so I will just jump right in, I had such a fun time googeling for Halloween decor ideas, I thought I should do it again for thanksgiving. I don’t have all the sources, but for those that I have I will list them! (They are kind of a mix of fall ideas too, that I think work for thanksgiving too)
Table and Place Settings:
(most images are from Martha, as usual, after all she is the Queen of the land of Domesticity
These two images are my favorites.
The leaves in the hurricanes are fab.
The second image had the best idea, see how the plates are all on stands? They went out and bought some cheap plates and bowls and hot glued them together to make a footed platter. TOO COOL! I am going to try this someday, if not for thanksgiving then something else.
Last two pictures found on Tip Junkie and Furniturestoreblog.com respectively.
Misc. Decor Ideas.
Flower balls from Weheartit, Runner from Martha.
Leaf Garland from ohdeeoh.com

>very fun. and not to mention festive!! how fun. love all these ideas!

I was at a spaghetti dinner with a silent auction the other night for our Young Women and one of the plates for auction were full of these darling little turkeys made out of oreo's, mini. peanut butter cups, candy corn and whoppers. I know those are worth about a million weight watcher points but if you're hosting thanksgiving for some little people it would be perfect. I found pictures online by just googling oreo turkey's. They unfortunately weren't quite as well done as the lady did in our ward but still got the idea across. Anyway, just had to share. I'm hoping to make some for our Kmetzsch thanksgiving here and if they turn out I'll share the pictures on facebook. Have a great thanksgiving!
>Beautiful post full of inspiration! Sent you an email too…
