We have so much to be thankful for: our immediate families and our extended families, our friends, our teachers, our policemen, our firemen, our soldiers, and so many more—all who have made our lives good for us. While we are thankful year round, now is an especially good time to remember the blessings in our lives.
I would like to give a special thank-you to the wonderful chapters of the P. Buckley Moss Society around the country for the support and joy they’ve given me through the years. They are made up of people who genuinely care about helping one another.
The Moss Pelicans Chapter of St. Petersburg, Fl., will be conducting a raffle next year—just around the corner!—for this quilted wall hanging. I am personally doing trapunta quilting on it.
I am currently in Mathews, Virginia, where it’s almost winter, but my yellow rose is still with me. It’s funny how one blossom can make me so happy, but I get such enjoyment going out and looking at it. The geraniums that I refused to let die are all blooming in my sunroom.
Isn’t it beautiful! My last rose of summer in December.
My daughter Becky, who lives in Cortona, Italy, posted this picture on Facebook of the Piazza Repubblica with its gorgeous Christmas tree.
Under the arch is our little grocery store, and above is a patio where we all remember having dinner looking down on the Piazza—but not in winter!
Earlier this fall, Corrado Gabellieri, Director of my Museum in Waynesboro, Virginia, took the picture below of a young albino deer and his twin brother on the Museum grounds.
Isn’t nature wondrous!
Best wishes for safe travels as you prepare for Christmas!
