One of my favorite authors, Charles de Lint, has a running theme in novels about the concept of coincidence, and how coincidence really isn't coincidence but evidence of some greater power at work in the world. (I can't find the specific novel where he talks about this, or I'd provide you with a passage, because his words do the idea much more justice than mine do.)
I like this concept, though, and I love when I see examples of ideas and concepts converging in my own life. Like today. For the past few days, Ella Publishing has been promoting THANKFUL THURSDAY, an idea that I really love (I also love those gorgeous cards they've been showing!) And today, when I headed over to One Story Down, I see that the feature post is about Gratitude.

I have lots to be thankful for, but today I want to say a big thank you to all of you who read my blog and buy my digital designs and comment on my photos and layouts, who offer your friendship and kind words to me, even though we've never met in real life. I am so lucky to be able to do the things I love to do, and all of you are the main reason why this is possible. Life is good, y'all, life is good, and you are the ones who help make it so. So thank you. THANK YOU.
Here's a simple printable freebie for you. These are two 4x6 card fronts, designed using my Softly Part Two collab with Robyn Meierotto. All you have to do is click on "view this photo," and then right-click to save the image. Print to a sheet of white cardstock or photo paper, trim to size and adhere to a 4x6 card. Easy. So go ahead -- download and start a circle of gratitude by sending out a THANK YOU card to someone who deserves it today.
