When I started my day in my cousin Paula's amazing garden, I knew it was going to be a good day.
Today I'm grateful my first instinct was right. I'm grateful for cousin hugs, dirty sticky fingers, smiling faces, dinner with great grandparents, a ride down memory lane (Greenville Lane to be exact) to the home of my mothers youth. I saw the hill she walk UP both ways in the snow barefoot to school. Guess what? It really was quite a large hill. Though as I expected, it was only uphill one way. I am grateful for an Uncle reading me his beautiful poem and him telling me my book was like poetry and he enjoyed it. I got all weepy but in the best sort of way. Today I'm grateful for furthering my journey into Genesis. Chapters 28-31 were interesting to say the least. I am grateful for dinner with Great Grandparents even if the food was nothing to IM home about. I'm grateful for Aunty's new van. It is the coolest mom-van I've ever seen. Today I'm grateful for ending the day with poetry, light painting and a sky full of stars.
