gratitude — the state of being grateful : thankfulness

On this Gratitude Sunday, I am grateful for:

  • An entire weekend with my best friend Julie, who was visiting the East Coast from her home in Wisconsin — the best 🙂
  • A surprising midweek snowfall — just enough to pretty up the woods but not cause troublesome traveling
  • And resulted in an unexpected early ski season nearby
  • Fireside knitting
  • James’ pumpkin soup and made from our very own pumpkins, too 🙂
  • A wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with my husband and parents — and enough food to feed many more!
  • Pennsylvania Dutch potato filling — why don’t I make this more often?!
  • Busy days at the shop
  • A second trip to NYC in less than a month
  • Magnolia Bakery cupcakes — that icing, so good….
  • My dad, who was quick to help when one of our valves broke off when I was filling up the Toyota tires with air
  • The kindness of strangers, which seems to get overlooked far too often these days
  • The true beginning of this festive, holiday season; the first eleven months of 2013 have been full and good — can’t wait to see what month 12 has in store for us (and is it really time for Holidailies again?!?)
