100th Post: Thankful





Today I am thankful for a good night’s sleep, for the sprinkling of birch leaves I found on my walk, for beautiful pomegranates, for spinach salad, and a quiet day. And I am thankful for things that have come my way this year: a sweet new goddaughter, a tentative conquering of my flight phobia, my cuddly new dog. Certain things keep me grounded, for which I am also thankful: my husband’s love and provision, the peace and calm I find in seeking God in the Orthodox Church, my long visits with dear family and friends. I miss my family especially during the holidays, but a good day awaits us tomorrow nevertheless.

I hope you have many blessings, small and large, to count this year! Happy Thanksgiving!

I always enjoy your photographs. You're inspiring me to take as many photos of my favorite sites here in Massachusetts before we move. Perhaps during the long weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving. And good luck with my Giveaway! I'm excited!

Ah, I agree with you on the pomegranates most of all....I love this time of year because of them. We can gobble up one in a day! Tedious peeling, but well worth it!!!
