2022 November – Thankful Heart Craft

Thankful Heart Craft


Many of you know that I am crafty… hopefully, in the best ways possible! One of the things I do is to print business cards for family and friends, so I usually have blank cards in my office.

After recently noticing many books and ideas about being open to all the blessings that we observe every day without comment, I decided to comment every day.

I retrieved a big glass from my kitchen cabinet, and some blank business cards on which to write my thankful comments and voila! My Thankful Heart!

For Thanksgiving and every day! If you are reading this… I’m thankful!


Thankful Heart Lyrics

With a thankful heart, with an endless joy
With a growing family, every girl and boy
Will be nephew and niece to me (Nephew and niece to me)
Will bring love, hope, and peace to me (Love, hope, and peace to me)
Yes, and every night will end and every day will start-

-with a grateful prayer and a thankful heart

With an open smile and with open doors
I will bid you welcome. What is mine is yours
With a glass raised to toast your health (With a glass raised to toast your health)
And a promise to share the wealth (Promise to share the wealth)
I will sail a friendly course, file a friendly chart

On a sea of love and a thankful heart

Life is like a journey. Who knows when it ends?
Yes, and if you need to know the measure of a man
You simply count his friends
Stop and look around you. The glory that you see
Is born again each day. Don’t let it slip away
How precious life can be

With an open heart that is wide awake
I do make this promise: Every breath I take
Will be used now to sing your praise (Used now to sing your praise)
And to beg you to share my days (Beg you to share my days)
With a loving guarantee that even if we part-

-I will hold you close with a thankful heart

I will hold you close with a thankful heart
