giving thanks


for gifts from the sea

for sunshiny blooms

for lavender-scented candlelight

for rabbit's foot ferns

for a daughter's first loaf of homemade bread

That a lot to be thankful for :). the bread looks wonderful. there's nothing like an in- house baker.

Bread looks good, your pottery is so pretty and the sea shells are a great find! Wishing you a hope filled day!

Wow... daughter's first loaf looks like a success.
Simply love candle-light... doesn't even have to be a scented candle.

I love how you set up the shells --- a unique smiley face!
Yellow is a favorite color for me for annuals---they add instant sunshine.
I like lavender plants and sachets--haven't had a lavender candle though.
Never saw such a fern before.
The first loaf of bread by the daughter---indeed a milestone. Just wait until she takes over the recipe, adapts it, and makes it better. A mixed emotion moment. :)
You've got a lot of simple things to be thankful for, friend, and they're what makes all the other worth dealing with.

I love the gifts from the sea. Those are urchin shells. We used to call them Sand dollars They are lovely. The flowers are beautiful and the candle. Your daughter's bread looks yummy. These are all things that please the senses. A nice meditation of thanks.
Thank you!
