I'm happy to be joining Taryn at Wooly Moss Roots for the weekly gratitude*sunday. All week long, this little practice brings me into a quieter place of heart-filled appreciation.
Right now I am filled up with gratitude for...
...conversations at dinner focusing on talk of piglets, chicks, seeds and maybe something a little different this season
...the surprising delight of receiving a long-awaited package in the mail and all the excitement it heralds for the future
...a little three year old who still fits into my arms...and often prefers to be there for long cuddles at any given time of the day
...the responsibility and calmness of my eight year old at the ski hill when he and his friend lost the chaperoning parent and how he conducted himself to locate her again
...a daughter who loves to wear anything I knit, sew or craft for her
...the happiness of a surprise snowstorm turning our drab world into a fluffy white wonderland again making us feel like we were living in a snowglobe for three days
...and three days later...
...with these peeking out...
...the quiet tenacity of Mother Nature gently reminding me that this wheel we are on will keep on turning, day after day, season after season, bringing us hope, grace and the promise of renewal
