I'm so grateful for the chance to live this life! :wink:

The beautiful land where I live, the special people in my life, the animals at my side.

Also; apple pie, spiced tea and central heating!

I could go on and on...!

perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
Let him step to the music he hears,
however measured or far away."

Thankful for cast iron cookware. Random, no? I appreciate that the care of it is a ritual unto itself that helps slow me down a little in the kitchen and give me pause to be grateful for what I have.

I'm thankful for my pet bearded dragon Beardy, my lovely dog Dante, my two fish Merlin and Gandalf, my brothers, my parents, and for my healthy spirit. I'm also thankful for the world around me, and for all of nature.
Job 12:7-10 NIV
7 “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; 8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you. 9 Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this? 10 In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.

Thank you so much for being so welcoming! I am very excited about participating in this wonderful community! Ever since I found this Path I have been much more optimistic and thankful!

Spring! Out on the bike today and it was so beautiful, I didn't mind the two wrong turns which came with 2 large, unnecessary as it turns out, hills.

I'm thankful that -- for whatever reason -- I was compelled to clean my entire house over the course of the past five days. I honestly don't know where the inspiration came from, but I am extremely grateful for it.

The first fresh, ripe, red tomato of the season. If the taste of hot weather came in its own neat little package, it would have to be a tomato!

The light breeze, singing birds, and the preparations for my first Beltane ceremony!
