T Is For Thankful & Textures

"T"hankful for home:
While rebuilding our home (2005-2007) we wanted to give the individual contractors something personalized to show our appreciation for their work. We decided on 'personalized wood pen sets' since we thought this would be something they would keep in their 'work' trucks and they'd use them and hopefully remember how much we appreciated them and their hard work.
"T"hankful for teachers:
The personalized wood picture frames have become very popular for teachers so each year they can remember the students from their former classes.

This sample was of Trace's 2nd Grade Class.
"T"hankful for friends and healthy family:
Last year my sister came to stay with us while she underwent surgery in hopes I could help 'nurse her back to health'.

We did try to do something special for everyone at the Dr.'s office after they took such good care of her. Later we decided we HAD TO do something even more special for their office manager Amanda. We didn't realize at the time Kathi decided to come here for surgery that her insurance carrier would make things very interesting when she crossed state-lines for medical attention:(!

Live & learn we did, but Amanda was so very helpful and we can never thank her enough for her diligence and hard work! We felt Philippians 1:3-6 would be very appropriate under the circumstances. We'll always appreciate you Amanda!

Now I plead with you, brethren,
by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
that you all speak the same thing,
and that there be no divisions among you,
but that you be perfectly joined together
in the same mind
and in the same judgment.
1 Corinthians 1:10 NKJV
