(Jilly in the Park)
An ongoing series...Be Thankful Everyday.
On Thanksgiving Day, Jilly, my yellow lab, and I took a walk in the park with a special intention. I wanted to visit some trees in the woods and thank them for the support and energy that's helped through these last two very difficult years. Leaning against one of the large Douglas Firs, sending my thanks I heard the whisper, "Be Thankful Everyday."
Here's my list of Everyday Thanks:
Everyday Thanks...Tuesday: A rainy day, a hot cup of coffee, savoring the soft silence of the pen across the page, writing.
(My hand built mug, a little wonky, but it doesn't leak!)
Everyday Thanks...Monday: Piles of crimson leaves.
Everyday Thanks...Sunday: Making swags at Patty's farmhouse in the country. Smell of fresh cedar. Hot cocoa, sweet treats, chatting and creating among friends and family.
Everyday Thanks...Saturday: The patience of a truly dedicated teacher who sat beside me and helped me out of frustration and into creation.
(Ok, a short, wonky bowl, but I love the horsehair firing)
