D., Cassie and a speaking tree on a Thanksgiving weekend hike to Marble Rock
~ sunsets on the river
~ peppermint tea
~ harvest season, my local farmers market and the abundance of food in our fridge
~ our home, though it's not always the cleanest, it's warm and it nurtures
~ my books
~ fresh McIntosh apples
~ the circle of supportive women in my life, you mean so much to me
~ the Mad Chatters, may our discussions continue to enlighten and cause gut-busting belly laughter
~ my local library
~ my computer and how it allows me to create and connect here, with you
~ my little Honda Civic, it brings me places
~ this weekend's Thanksgiving hike at the Marble Rock Conservation Area
~ the sunny warm weather we've been having these past few weeks, goodness is it really October?
~ a freezer full of strawberries, blueberries, tomatoes, and sweet corn
~ my point & shoot camera
~ art supplies and art-making
~ last weekend's Spiderman theme birthday party for D.
~ my health and that of my loved ones
~ my colleagues and friends
~ the practice of writing Morning Pages (thank you Julia Cameron!)
~ my family, I am blessed with musical, laughter-loving genes
~ opportunity and possibility, being born where they're both readily accessible
~ freedom to speak and think out loud, freedom to vote
~ this space here, my blog
~ D.'s family
~ D., our conversations, our silence, our being together
~ Cassie, her smiling enthusiasm and her cozy snuggles
I am blessed.
Happy Thanksgiving to you.
