When I was thinking about what the next Give Thanks verse would be; the thing I was most thankful for at that moment - it was having my husband home with me again.
The last couple of months, with him away working so much of the time, I would feel a great loss when he rode away. Yet, when he rode in the gate 5 days later my heart would leap and I was more excited than ever!
So the next verse?
I am Giving Thanks....
Remember the song, "Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree.."?
The meaning of the homecoming in that song is different to mine and Mr E's, but the yellow ribbon has certainly become symbolic with the return home of a loved one, so my sketch included one for this tree.
Hope you like it, and have someone to stitch it for - yourself perhaps?
You can download Verse 11, "for homecomings" HERE.
Have you ever tied a yellow ribbon around a tree to welcome someone home?
Next week I'm going to share the 12th and final verse of my Give Thanks BOM for 2011.
All the verses, and the hanger pattern, are listed free for download on the lefthand sidebar. I'll keep them all up until January 1st, then off they go into history.
