Today is the day of Thanksgiving here in the USA. A whole day dedicated to the giving of thanks. I spend my life in gratitude of every day and all that I am allowed to receive. But, on this special day I am extra grateful for all of the blessings in my life and…No this isn’t going to be one of those mooshy smooshy posts.  But, it is one written from my heart and sent straight to yours. Thank you, for your bloggy friendship, for your participation here at Katherine Corner and thank you to every single one of you who takes time out of your day to read what I share.  I am wrapped every day in the love of my hubby, family, friends and our sweet pup Izzy. My life is truly filled with blessings. YOU, my sweet bloggy friends, are the Cherry on the Cake of my Happy. Thank you!
