#365grateful January 22 - February 1, 2014


I am grateful to own the desk my father made
 and a space set aside for the sole purpose
 of writing notes of encouragement.


I am grateful for a warm fire on a chilly day.


I'm grateful for my camera. Its lens is a window
 I look through to capture the world around me.


I am grateful for my new boots Charlie bought me.


I am grateful I can write in cursive..
an art disappearing from the classroom


I'm grateful for the gift of an angel
 from a dear friend who is no longer with me.


I am grateful to hang out with my hubby on a chilly winter day.


I am grateful to learn about the Chinese
 traditions for celebrating the new year.


I am grateful for quiet moments tucked inside a busy day.


I am grateful for a snail mail note decorated
 with a flower to give cheer on those less than perfect days.


I am grateful Charlie has his parents' Bible
 and for the memories tucked inside

  1. I am grateful to have met you in the world wide web :)
    The desk your father made is really beautiful and I like the typewriter!
    We often don't realize all the beauty around us. It's so important and good to be grateful for all these big and small things! Nothing is self-evident...
    Beautiful photographs!
    I hope you enjoy a wonderful week! :)
