Good morning!

Looked out my window and what did I see?
A beautiful sunrise looking back at me!

What a great way to start the day.

Look out my window!

This is what I saw when I woke up today!
It’s a little mesmerizing.

Thankful Thursday – 3 gifts striped

Three Gifts Striped

1. A striped candy cane made by the hands of someone I love, my big sister. Every year at Christmas, she would give me a hand-made ornament.  She passed away 10 years a go.  I miss those gifts.  I miss those hands.

Each year, as I hang the ornaments on my tree, I have a quiet moment of reflection as I think about my big sister, and her special gifts, and how much she loved me, and I loved her!

2. Cozy socks that keep my feet nice and warm! Oh how I love a new pair of socks.

Because life is just too short for plain white socks!

3. The blinds on my window. Not nearly as meaningful as the candy cane ornament, but certainly practical, and some times practical is good too.
