|Thanks to my daughter for this lovely photo|
With a week that, so far, has not turned out quite as I had expected or planned, I've decided it would be a perfect time to focus on what has brought a smile to my face the past few weeks, the small things in life that I can so easily take for granted when my days become busy and or my mind is focused on all that needs to be accomplished or taken care of. I mustn't let these little gifts of goodness pass me by without taking notice or showing gratitude.
a basket of antique, wooden clothespins picked up at a yard sale for $.25
the joy that radiates from our little girl, even when life throws her multiple curve balls
beautiful sunsets viewed from the porch
a bountiful harvest of fresh vegetables
pretty little violas in the garden next to my doorstep
newly thrifted wool blankets hanging on the line (they will be so warm and cozy this winter)
cuddles and snuggles from our new little friend
a game of pick-up sticks, passed down from Grandpa
ending green beans on the porch with lots of little helpers
What has recently put a smile on your face?
