Counting Blessings

 

Today I'm counting my blessings:

- Frodo's groomer who 'gets' him and is so wonderful to him and gives him a great haircut - Frodo snuggles and Holly antics, both pets make me smile - phone chats with my children - living near family especially my sister! - my early morning routine -

-my yarn stash which is massive and yet I can always buy more yarn, go figure - this little blogging community where we uplift each other and support one another, it is one of the best blessings the internet has provided - summer yielding to fall ( I know! it's crazy but the days are shortening and I've been putting a light on in the morning, we are getting closer to fall!) - 

- BIG salads and no cooking days - dark chocolate - green decaf tea - my favorite mugs - a tidy house - my husband - this house - books - knitting - daydreaming - believing in the goodness of others - friendly waves of hello to total strangers on my walks - all the drivers who slow down and yield to me on my walks - the back patio - a quiet neighborhood - good neighbors - meditation sessions - 


What would be your blessings?

  1. It's always a good thing to review what matters. I love that picture of Frodo - he has the sweetest face!

  2. So many blessings! There are many in my life as well. Fletch & Mabel at the top of the list for sure. Some welcome rain last night (could have skipped the power outage though - LOL). So nice to read how much you are enjoying your new surroundings and being close to family.

  3. I always say "I'm too blessed to be stressed".

  4. I love that you take time to count your blessings like this, Karen. Believing in the good of others, quiet times, naps, jars of homemade/canned spaghetti sauce sitting on my shelves from earlier this week, and a hint of fall in the air! I love these rhythms of life!

  5. Blogging friends and blogging friends that have become IRL friends, Steve, Giroux, and especially today - air conditioning.

  6. Yes, to that beautiful knitting and more yarn! We've been wanting to eat fresh food (from our garden!) or, grill, too hot to cook inside.

  8. What a wonderful list. Air conditioning, fresh tomatoes, all of the summer fruit, my husband, my neighbors, my dear dear family, the yarn stash, knitting, a comfortable home, living in a medium sized community, books, the air I breathe, and on and on.

  11. Fresh tomatoes, early evening sunshine on the porch, sitting down to a dinner my husband cooked, lunch with my mom, a birthday celebration for my sister-in-law, air conditioning ... making and sharing lists like these - they inspire so much joy!
