This week I am thankful for:
The little grids printed on the backside of wrapping paper - makes it SO much easier to cut straight lines.
An afternoon of sharing my home with lovely friends, a time to share a meal and share our hearts. So thankful for the gift of friendship.
A small gift exchange between these friends and myself and the way the two of them so thoughtfully chose things that look beautiful in our home - like the above ornament : ) Giving gifts is one thing; putting thought and love behind those gifts takes them to a whole other level.
Our warm (and very wet and windy) weather. We hit 60 degrees this week - a record setting December and a warm reprieve from the previous week that found our temps down into the teens.
A fellow shopper who took the time to come over where I was trying on a jacket to tell me how nice it looked on me and went so well with my hairstyle. I have a "feeling" I may find this very jacket under the tree come Christmas morning : )
Reading glasses (that I have been thankful for before...) that possibly should be worn for more than reading these days given the fact that while making a sandwich the other day I went to pick up a stray seed from the bread and it started crawling away. The "seed" was actually a tiny bug!
VERY thankful I did not actually eat the above "seed"!
The generous in communities everywhere who are filling bins with toys and food to be shared with those in need. Praying that the spirit of giving will last throughout the year.
What are you thankful for?
May your weekend be filled with wonder, laced with peace and bursting with love...
(Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good: his love endures forever. Psalm 118:1)
