Gratitude Not-Monday


Okay, so Monday was really, really busy.  I can still be just as grateful on a Tuesday, can’t I? 


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.


busy days
warm slippers
decorating Christmas cookies with my daughter
crab dip
my children singing in beautiful harmony while playing 
Set_Cubed -my Christmas gift 
watching Amy play in the wrappings and ribbons
our once-a-year fondue shrimp feast on Christmas Eve
watching It’s a Wonderful Life and remembering again how blessed I am
homemade caramels
the sound of snowmobiles in the night
a new doorway
a testimony that reminds me of where I’ve been and where I’m headed in spite of it
a printer that works
a stack of finished calendars
a break from school
iced tea
a fresh layer of snow in the morning, erasing yesterday’s ugliness


and a construction update…

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.
