I am Thankful

Today I am so thankful for the snow we have had (nearly every other day!). For me, watching the snow is like listening to crickets or listening to ocean waves. It is very peaceful. I think part of that is that we all stay home when it snows. We are warm and cozy and protected and together!

Here is a picture of the tree in our front yard as it looked early this morning...

With a bad back I really can't shovel. I am very thankful for a husband and children who are willing to shovel, especially my husband who does the bulk of it. He is making quite the large snow banks this year!!

Yesterday I sewed too much and was sore. Today I was a bit frustrated because I wanted to sew but knew I couldn't sit in a hard backed chair to do it. So I am thankful that I got the idea to put the sewing machine on the kitchen counter and sew standing up!! :) (You might notice in this picture that the trim has been taken off my counter...well that's quite another story...seems we discovered recently that we have some work to do on our counters this year...they have exceeded their lifespan...but that is for another day!)

What are you thankful for today?

"Come let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him iwth thanksgiving and extol him with music and song." Psalm 95:1-2
