gratitude — the state of being grateful : thankfulness

On this Gratitude Sunday, I am grateful for:

  • Filling the darker days with the soft glow of candles and twinkly fairy lights
  • Catching a (really) good sale!
  • Finishing and shipping the last of the Christmas orders for Baldy Hill Homemade well before the postal deadline
  • Driving through the countryside at night to admire our neighbor’s holiday decorations, each home a uniquely beautiful reflection of its people
  • A purring cat curled up on my lap
  • The anticipation of the upcoming holidays and spending time with loved ones
  • Our cookbook collection, which currently fills four shelves and provides constant inspiration in our kitchen
  • Satisfaction of cleaning out my work e-mail inbox so that I can start the new year fresh after my two-week break
  • Finally finishing decorating our own winter tree, which we both are certain is our most beautiful one yet!
  • Singing along to my favorite Christmas carols when alone in the car
  • Support and encouragement from one of my work colleagues on a day when I really needed it
  • Watching our older dogs still enjoying a good romp in the freshly fallen snow
