By Debby Giusti

As another year draws to a close, my thoughts turn with gratitude to all that has happened in 2009. An increased awareness of the bounty of God’s mercy and love tops the list of things for which I am most thankful.

In this time of economical upheaval when so many in our country are experiencing hardship, I am blessed to be surrounded by a loving family and give thanks for their continued health and well being.

In the past few months, like many of you, I’ve experienced a new appreciation for the simple pleasures of life. Scaling down means more time to appreciate others. As we all know, happiness does not come from material possessions but from a life focused first on God and then on serving others.

As always, the men and women in uniform have my deepest respect. Because of their sacrifice, we continue to be the "land of the free and the home of the brave." I ask you to join with me in praying for their protection and for the families who wait for their safe return.

Thank you for making 2009 a wonderful year to be a Craftie Lady of Suspense. Whether you post comments or merely read the messages others write, you’re part of this blog family and I am so thankful for your support.

Have a Happy New Year! Looking forward spending more time together in 2010!

Wishing you abundant blessings,
Debby Giusti
