Unexpected Treasures

Unexpected Treasures

I have been contemplating books for the Read Harder challenge. The categories are most interesting… some are easy for me to fill in a book or two or three, while others will require more research! I have been enjoying doing this research tremendously until I got derailed yesterday…

The mail person brought the most amazing package all the way from Salt Lake City! I wish you all could have seen the look on my face when I opened the package to discover these treasures! And, yes, there might have even been a tear or two shed as such an amazing gift! Dear Margene, you are truly one in a million! I cannot tell you how much these books mean to me and I have been pouring over them this ever since! They are truly wonders that are filled with such incredible inspiration! Why they even have practical application that is MOST APPRECIATED!

Now I can barely wait to begin my new stitching project on Thursday!! It will almost feel like Margene is sitting with me as I begin this new project – for truly, Margene, you are such an inspiration, and I am thrilled to take this journey with you and do so with profound thanks and so much love!

Giving Thanks in the Moment

Giving Thanks in the Moment

Carole sent a most appropriate Ten on Tuesday topic this week and one that poses a bit of a challenge:

10 Things You Are Thankful For Right Now

I can easily think of ten things I am thankful for…

However, the right now portion requires some introspection, thought, even meditation.

And so, thoughtfully, right now I am thankful for:

  1. My Bialetti Moka Pot, coffee at its finest right in my kitchen!
  2. The discovery of the joy of yoga and making myself stick with it for 30 days, creating a healthy habit that has and will continue
  3. The discovery of 100 Acts of Sewing that then spurred
  4. my rediscovery of the joy of sewing
  5. The internet that helps keep me connected, updated, inspired, and entertained
  6. Sherman, who makes every day so much more
  7. My new friends here, most especially Cheryl who has become like a sister to me.
  8. My children and, especially, my new grand-daughter, Genevieve
  9. My ‘new’ city, with all it has to offer and
  10. the reason I am here (in the ‘Burgh)

I think that giving thanks in the moment is a very good habit to adopt and I want to know, Gentle Reader, what are you thankful for right now!
