gratitude — the state of being grateful : thankfulness

On this Gratitude Sunday, I am grateful for:

  • News from one of our dearest friends, whose husband has been dealing with a painful chronic condition, that the latest treatment seems to be producing some positive results
  • That old classic of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches, which brightens up any winter day
  • Finding the perfect gift for someone
  • The excitement of learning something new — in this case, a new knitting pattern 🙂

  • A fun first visit to our state farm fair — so much to see (and eat!), including the famous (and inevitable) butter sculpture!
  • Making plans for lunch with one of my best friends
  • The evening winter light on Baldy Hill
  • Increasingly later sunsets, making our days seem longer

  • Discovering (another!) box of unpacked goodies, this time in our attic, where it was stored after our move from Spain
  • Big bowls of homemade chile
  • Starting a new novel written by one of my favorite authors

  • New seed catalogues arriving in the mail every day
  • Finally finishing a project that had been on my “to do” list (seemingly) forever!
  • Waking up after a good night’s sleep
