This morning I read something that made me realize how vital it is to give thanks for all our gifts. 
Read it here 

holy experience

watching a young couple who has just lost a baby, able to surrender him to God in perfect peace
old ladies giggling like young girls
a little creek carrying its harvest of autumn leaves endlessly downstream
grilling with friends and eating spicy venison
two young people tentatively seeking each other’s company, still unsure whether they are more than friends
the smell of fresh ground coffee
my beautiful, warm and cosy butterfly fleece
a rousing rendition of “The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything” from my teenagers in the back of the van
the stark silhouettes of trees against the sky
a blue and white Delft vase
laughing as a roomful of people play Guesstures
my grandmother’s Chinese Checkers board
the last fresh peach dessert of the year
a full-to-overflowing freezer
an hour-long massage from my daughter

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    an hour-long massage??  How do you get one of those??

    @fwren – I pay her.    But it’s a LOT cheaper than going to a professional, and she does an excellent job.
