Today, because it’s November. Today, because November is when we really think a lot about gratitude. Today, because thinking about gratitude leads to even more gratitude . . . I’m sharing 3 things I’m grateful for right now. And ,as it turns out, they are all related to my home.
- New blinds. We got new blinds for the craft room and Dale’s office back in early October. I loved them so much I ordered more for the living room. And then I loved those so much I ordered more for the bedroom and bathroom. I’m still waiting for those last ones to come in but in the meantime I feel truly grateful for how these have made our rooms look more stylish from the inside, more cohesive from the outside, and have really created an updated look all around.
- Heat. We need a new boiler and I’m sure not grateful for that but I am grateful that we can use our existing one until we get a new one and I’m also grateful that we have the means to pay for a new one. And, aside from the boiler, I’m grateful for our wood stove and the two cords of wood that are sitting in our driveway right now with two more to come. I love burning wood as a source of heat for the ambiance it creates as well as the warmth.
- Electricity. Last Friday in the early morning we lost our power. It wasn’t out for long, just under 4 hours, but when I got up I couldn’t make coffee. I couldn’t check email or watch the news. I couldn’t turn on the lights or listen to music or ask Alexa for an update on my day. Going without electricity for that short amount of time reminded me how much I take it for granted and how grateful I am for it’s existence.
What are you feeling grateful for this week? I’d love to have you tell me in the comments or write a blog post of your own to share with all of us.
