Thanksgiving behind, Christmas ahead.
Time to count our blessings ...
We already have so many.
An author once challenged us to start a list of "one thousand gifts," things in our life that we can find beauty in, thankfulness, presence. The list grows and grows as we far exceed one thousand gifts!
What are you thankful for? Keep the list going ...
filtered water with ice cubes, refreshing
my husband starting Christmas music while I'm in the kitchen
squinting when the sun is too bright
oatmeal with cinnamon and brown sugar, shared with my husband on cold mornings
twittering birds just outside my window, cheery no matter how early the hour
caramel tea from a tea boutique my cousin took me to
washing the dishes in hot water, from the tap
the creaking, crackling sound of the house breathing when the wood relaxes with the morning sun
counting the stars, again and again,
