Today I am thankful for a decision made. I had three different planner options and over the last few weeks, I actually sold two of them. I am so happy to have them winging away to new homes where they will be well used and appreciated. Yesterday I started adding dates to the last planner left standing. Feels so good to have made a decision – the next right thing.
I am thankful for all the music in my life. There are times when I forget that most people don’t have this daily dose. Even a pandemic cannot stop my most talented husband from sharing his gifts. (I am also thankful that we are not neat-nicks. Always a bit of little people evidence in our home these days and we love it!)
“There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself.”
I am thankful for the way the sun shines into this room. The play of shadow and light reminds me to pay attention, to wait and listen.
Once again, I am thankful for my neighborhood. From funny signs, to beautiful scenery, and socially distanced chats across the road, being home has brought plenty of tiny moments to treasure. Last week, I was was on a video chat with my sister-in-law when I saw a car parked on the street. Two women got out of the car and started walking up to the houses around me. One walked up to my front porch and left a brown bag. I didn’t recognize her and wasn’t expecting anything. What a treat to find a bag of daffodil bulbs on my porch with a sweet note about planting hope. I think I see enough dry weather in the upcoming days to get out and put these in the ground. And hopefully, by the time they push up through the dirt, we will have some new hope in our lives.
