I actually first wrote this almost 2 years ago, but it still sounds true today.

Today I am grateful for:

the melting snow
the return of chirping birds
a safe, warm, comfortable home
healthy children and husband
jobs that want me to work for them
the dance of the geranium’s leaves in the rising air from the radiator
the conversation of nature outside my kitchen window
a world of ideas to explore and examine
the boughs of the pine tree gently swaying in the breeze
the milky grey light as the morning begins
the calm of a new day
