Thankful Thursday: May 22

Thankful Thursday!

This week I’m thankful for:

  • Peaceful backyard haven—heaven!—full of green leaves, feathered friends and good conversation.
  • Madrugada moments on the worn, wooden back steps, breathing deeply of new-rain earth, untethered thoughts and chortling songbird melodies.
  • A gentle realization: Good. Enough.
  • Sickness growing weak and health growing strong.
  • Childhood amusement in and joy from sparkler swinging, sandbox digging, bubble chasing, marshmallow roasting, and flower picking a scraggly-beautiful bouquet to take home to Mama.
  • Tiny fingers sugar-glued together, sweatshirt sleeves drizzled in gooey goodness, and darling sticky little marshmallow ‘staches.
  • Owls, crickets, and train whistles, audible again to my love’s ears after such a long absence.
  • Life ever deeper, ever changing, nuanced, laid layer upon layer.
  • Lilac perfume cascading from above and swirling ‘round and ‘round.
  • A kind comment from a favorite teacher of many years gone by…IMG_0831
