pieces of thankfulness

some of the things I’m grateful for today…

*| a free country – and a place where the closest I’ve come to “bombs bursting in air” are the glorious fireworks celebrating our independence.  Deep, deep gratitude for those in our armed forces who don’t even know me and yet they sacrifice themselves to protect me

*| the new aqua camera I got for my birthday

*| actually getting better at playing the guitar – and watching awesome video lessons online from a guy with a British accent.  British accents make everything better.

*| Being reminded by said “teacher” to “practice what you can’t do, not what you can” – which rather startled me into the realization that I usually do just that.  Ooops.

*| Quiet evenings where I can soak up the utter loveliness and peace and rest of a gentle sky, birds and crickets making music, and the soft pool

*| Dancing in church yesterday – and feeling blessed that I have yet another chance to jump into the dance choir even though I’ve been at college all year; remembering how beautiful it is to use my gifts as part of the worship.  And it was especially sweet to be dancing one  of my favorite dances with two lovely girls, and savoring the time with miss Jessina before we both go off to school again!

*| Building the Hundred-Acre Wood with my little sister yesterday:

*| Books.  Friends.  Beauty.  Rest.  Summer 🙂
