I had a different idea for this final post, but I’ve been feeling sick. So, I’m grateful that I have a day off after fighting through my cold the past week.
I’m thankful for opportunities to shake off the old and grow something new. Every year when the leaves fall off the trees, the current year is shedding to make room for the next year.
I’m grateful for this hammock. When the weather’s nice and I’m feeling like lounging in the sunshine, it’s there to cradle and comfort me.
I’m grateful for this time of year. We bake cookies, spend time curled up together watching classic specials and movies, watch the delight of our children, and celebrate.
I’m thankful for my family and friends and for all the things we have. We’ve had more, and we’ve had less. Because I know what it’s like to go without, I’m grateful to have.
I’m thankful for indulgences and sweet treats. Treats aren’t meant for everyday, but I’m so thankful to enjoy them when we have them.
I’m thankful for tea in all its many variations. I enjoy black tea with a splash of sweetened vanilla almond milk, green tea with a spoonful of orange blossom honey, and herbal infusions straight or with honey. Tea soothes me.
I’m thankful for toasty fleece pants and socks that keep me warm when the weather gets colder. Simple, soft, fuzzy comfort.
I’m thankful this sweet girl came back home after a couple of years and has taken a liking to this indoor cat life.
I’m even grateful for the clouds that come down and envelope the mountains. You can’t fully appreciate the sun if it’s always shining.
