Thankfulness - Leaves

I have a new spiritual journal and was thinking about thanksgiving and what I am thankful for. I was outside cutting grass and picked up leaves to draw in my journal. I haven't thought about it until a friend of mine was coming to our area to see the beautiful Autumn leaves. She doesn't get to see the seasons like we do here. So I really studied some of the leaves in my own yard and drew them so that I can enjoy them much longer than just a few days. I have many things and many people to be thankful for but today I am thankful for the beautiful scenery that the changing leaves provides for us in Autumn.
What are you thankful for today?

Nancy, I am so thankful to have seen this page in person. The detail is truly remarkable! What an amazing idea to use real leaves as stencils!!! Can't wait to see this journal progress (and your Christmas tags too!)

Wow! Love, love, love the leaves!! You did an excellent job of sketching and painting them. My favorite part of fall--the leaves and all the colors and the smell of fall in them.
