Day 19: a grace in the kitchen, a grace in the weather, a grace that might have never been.
In the kitchen: oh, so many! A friend over for chicken pot pie yesterday. Doing dishes with my hubby. Baking bread.
In the weather: well, there's been no snow, just lots of cold...but that makes walking to school easier.
That might have never been: a conversation with a beloved friend that was so very needed, but would have never happened if we hadn't sat at the same table in a class last year.
Day 20: 3 gifts you saw only when you got close-up.
Hmm. That's a harder one! One, pasta in the pantry that I forgot was there until I was digging around on the shelf. Such a lovely surprise!
Two, an adorable little squirrel outside the library, who, when I paused to watch him in his antics, rose up on his hind legs and twitched his cute little nose.
Three, quite a bit of spare change in a purse that I haven't used in a while, found while looking for something else in said purse.
Not so hard after all. :)
It's amazing how many blessings I can realize when I think about and look for them!
