G is for Grateful - A to Z Challenge


I spent hours yesterday and today trying to create my own 'Grateful' quote.  It was what I really wanted to share but I ended up trashing my work, [3 times!].  I think I was rushing.  It really matters to me not to get too far behind in the A to Z Challenge but inevitably it will happen, I can manage it without help, it's my destiny to lag behind.
So, rather than get all stressed about my lack of talent and wonderful 'G' ideas, I decided to go to Pinterest to save the day. 
I am truly grateful to all the wonderfully creative and arty people I've met on the internet and so this is my tribute to them. I am grateful for all the things I have learned and grateful particularly for the friendships and strong bonds I have made throughout my journey.
