Good evening dear blogging friends!
It has been quite a while since I have last posted.
As in every day we are given, we learn new lessons, and discover new gifts.
Because of strong storms that hit our area on Saturday afternoon, we were without
electricity for 24 hours. That has not happened to us for many years, and I was reminded how much I appreciate and depend on electricity. I am aware that many of you have had to go through a week or two without the precious commodity, but for us, twenty four hours seemed like a long time.
I walked into my dark, quiet kitchen early Sunday morning, and did not smell my hot coffee waiting, as it always is. My dear husband drove me to the local gas station and bought me hot coffee.
I now appreciate the simple luxury of having a pot of coffee waiting for me each morning.
I don't want to take it for granted.
I had the privilege of spending time at the farm this weekend, and visiting with my extended family.
Time to sit and share, by the lake, in the barn, or around the fire.
Again, I was reminded of the blessing family is in my life.
I also do not want to take that gift for granted.
The perfect clear, cool day on Sunday, was so refreshing after the many hot, sticky days we experienced the last few months.
I could feel "Fall" in the air and you all know how happy that makes me.
This is always the time of the year I look forward to the most.
Thankful for the little things this Monday evening. Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate you too.
