Now, it goes without saying there are many BIG things for which I am grateful today - and everyday - my health, my family, my children (all FOUR of them)! But today I'd like to think about a few small yet beautiful blessings ...
I am grateful for my memory and my attachment to simple sentiments ... like tinting carnations in January ... this year it's blue for the Blessed Mother. ❤
I love the way happy traditions weave their way through our family life.
For a warm and cozy bed to snuggle in at night.
Mounds of freshly laundered flannel and cotton ...
For catching the sunrise every morning ... I can't remember the last one I missed! Sure, EB gets us up crazy-early every day but clearly it has kept us in training for the new baby this summer. ;)
A winter sunrise is particularly striking.
For puttering time ... sitting somewhere comfortable, maybe with a cup of tea, and just letting my thoughts unravel. Catching them on crisp paper and sorting them into pretty binders.
January is a lovely time for organizing one's thoughts ...
Dear friends, what are you thankful for on this bright and brisk winter's day?
