I’m thankful for the music my son brings into our lives and the school who taught him cello and his pals who gathered him on a cold night to raise funds for Syrian refugees.
Thankful for my family who agreed to dress up that night, brave the cold for the holiday lights, even though they hate to pose for photos.
Christmas carols and tree lightings.
Thankful for traditions and decorations old and new and the memories they bring.
For hometown holiday parades.
Perfectly imperfect trees.
And kid’s decorating them…Notice who put their’s on first? Lol.
Little shops in town like this one called Azuca that make it easy to grab a gift for not much and avoid the malls.
Cookie parties with old and dear friends that have been going for years.
Grandma who reminds me weekly about what really matters.
And family, pets, neighbors and friends and so much more.
Doing simple acts of kindness such a nice way to share the holiday season. Whether it’s a note, a plate of cookies, an unexpected gift, raking an elderly neighbors’ leaves, or an invitation for coffee you can say thank you in so many ways. Sometimes it’s just being present with those who need it.
I’m thankful to all of you for being here and reading. Thank you readers and bloggers for the kind notes and good thoughts all year and for patience between posts sometimes. I feel so fortunate to have this other little circle of friends through this blog so thank you so much.
