Somehow a whole week passed without words on here…so I’ll just do what I promised myself I would, keep giving thanks. Instead of complaining. Instead of finding fault. Instead of turning inward, closing up, which hurts less.
# 9 the promise of upcoming time away with my love
#10 answers that come from asking hard questions
#11 courage to seek out a challenge
#12 acceptance despite grave flaws
#13 promises kept
#14 verbal explosion from a fuzzy haired thumb sucker
#16 the joy that ‘clean’ brings
#17 the far greater joy that I trust will come when the months-long-night is over
#18 the forgiveness of children
#19 a husband who works so hard
#20 using fine china even with children everywhere
#21 the delight of hosting a Mother’s Day dinner party for 21 dear people
#22 watching men carefully wash my wedding china
#23 fine wine, a board of cheese and food made with 12 cloves of garlic!
#24 my second-favorite flowers in bloom in my yard
