Giving Thanks

I apologize in advance that I am going to be an absolute cliche and write this blog, two days before Thanksgiving, of all the things I'm thankful for. well, more like a little tiny snippet of all the things I'm thankful for. Starting with beautiful things..
like flowers.
 winter berries

bittersweet vines
fantasy dinners that look like this...

books and the time to read them

and me

I'm especially thankful for these three people (pictured above). not because they are flawless or perfect but because a family's love is unconditional, or should be, and mostly because we are three irreplaceable human beings. I'm thankful that my life revolves around them and that they keep me grounded even in spite of my relentless attempts to defy gravity.

 I'm thankful that although the body ages, the spirit never does (this from one who slathered fast fix for puffy eyes all over her entire face this morning). 

I'm thankful that I have my two hands to create with and that my mind has not reached its full capacity. that there is room to grow, to learn and to prosper.

I'm thankful to God for letting me see all these things...

... for web sites like pinterest and bloglovin' where most of my pictures are from.

And lastly for whoever is reading this. Thanks!
