It's felt really crazy the last month or so.
There've been engagements, baby announcements (I'm gonna be an aunt !), retirements (congrats to my dad !), wedding hoopla (showers & weddings upcoming !), and too many sympathy cards sent & calling hours/funerals attended . . . plus the usual wacko-ness that is work !
The good, the bad, and the ugly indeed !
In the midst, I've been very slowly making my way through this book. In the section I've read so far, the author talks about how " . . . deep joy is found only at the table of thanksgiving," and how the "height of our joy is dependent on the depth of our thanks." She also started a list of 1,000 gifts: "not of gifts I want, but of gifts I already have."
While sitting in my craft room with the kitties yesterday, taking a break from knitting (the "Summer Breeze" sweater is nearing completion !), I grabbed a pen and started my list on the back of an Anthropologie catalog . . .
1. A steaming cup of coffee
2. Soul food songs
3. Laundry fresh from the dryer
4. Peaceful face of a sleeping cat
5. Dresses (they make me feel girlie & pretty !)
6. The click of my knitting needles at work
7. Lush green of the leaves & grass when it rains
8. Creamy sweet taste of dark chocolate
10. The smell of wool yarn
So, what's on your list ??!!??!!
Happy Monday !
