gratitude -- a spring song

I've been feeling a welling up of gratitude. For the littlest things. Beauty. Grace. 
  • the perfection of a rainy day after getting seedlings and seeds planted in the garden
  • soup made from asparagus from the farm

  • snuggling up beneath a quilt and reading a favorite book
  • cup after cup of tea
Of course, I'm grateful for the bigger things, too, but the small things are what often get overshadowed. They need to be celebrated. They need their song.

Wishing you much to sing about.

    1. Thank you, Laurie! It's been fun to slowly transform the colors in the living room. Painting furniture. Painting the walls. Adding other little bits. I hope you're enjoying nesting in your new home!
