Forty Three

Forty-three small points of light for which I am grateful today, in no particular order…

Friends, near and far
Finding and redefining family
The chipmunk that lives in my garden
The taste of homegrown tomatoes and basil
My daughter’s laughter
Manuscript acceptance letters
A note of thanks
Walking a labyrinth
Clover, our cute and feisty pet hedgehog
A perfect pairing of wine with dinner
Roses beginning to open
The first flower of spring
A warm fire on a chilly evening
Morning coffee
A breeze that brushes my face while I pray
Notes from old friends
Recognition of the inner person reflected in someone’s eyes
Ice cream for dinner
Igniting a spark of intellectual curiosity
Being lost in song
Apple pie on Thanksgiving. With NYS cheddar cheese.
When the data speaks the story clearly
Watercolor pigment traveling across brush strokes of water
Hiking to the cross at Shrinemont
Communion with full inclusion
A meal prepared for you with love
A walk in the garden after rain
Waking to the sound of birds chirping
Dreams that you know have meaning
Bright red cardinals
Something made especially for you
Making a new friend
Accepting grace
A perfect snowflake crystal that melts against your skin
Music that transports you to another place
Being known and loved
Cooking a dish to perfection
Watching a child sleeping peacefully
A good hair day
Finding the perfect quotation
When your words speak to someone else’s spirit
