My brother’s dogs. They make me laugh – and learn that things are just things. Like my favorite pottery.
My capable family – and helpful friends. And the ability to paint over an unfortunate experiment acid staining concrete. I’m grateful for adaptability.
Simplicity. It seems to be the major thought in my mind this week. I’m starting to wonder what it might look like if I sat with the uncomfortable waiting just a little longer. What if I only made three pieces a season, but they were perfect pieces?
I’m grateful for KatyDids. My friend and the insects.
I’m grateful that my garden looks barren. It looks like a couple of piles of mulch and some lone rosebushes I forgot to cut back. What a lesson. It’s not dead, it’s just resting. Incubating. I’m grateful for such a tangible example of faith on my part. It’s February that makes me start to doubt that anything lives beneath that soil and faith that makes me mulch it anyway.
* and one more that can’t go unsaid – I’m grateful that Egypt has worked so hard for reform and has had a taste of victory.
Have a good weekend.
That picture of the dogs has made my day (sorry about the pottery though)!
PS – I’m grateful for you, too!!!
Oh wow, look at those puppies! And you are a very good sister. 🙂
