Gifts that make my life worth living,
gifts that make my moments holy.
Not gifts that I wish for
but gifts that I have received.
Gifts that bring me back
into Joy and Gratitude.
chocolate chip cookies baking
Calvin’s snow sculptures
20 piecrusts rolled out and in the freezer
a (partially) weed-free perennial bed
the ringing of horseshoes as they hit the stake
friends around a campfire
cuddling a sleepy baby
a treasure hunt for a birthday gift
freshly shaved parmesan cheese
the anticipation of seeing old friends
the satisfaction of cleaning things that are really dirty
kittens tumbling over each other as they explore the world
a long nap on a Sunday afternoon
