Welcome to our farmhouse…life is good!

Monday, November 19

be glad of life...

For a crackling fire and family to share it,
for bittersweet and plump pumpkins,
for a wood-bin filled with logs,
and for time to dream while staring into the flames.
I am thankful.

For quilts and trunks and weathered barns,
for fields now dusted with snow,
and the distant sound of an owl.
I am thankful.

For purring cats and smiling goats
for hens and dogs and bees,
I am thankful.

For time to live and the laughter of children,
for creaky old floors, glowing candles, and soft flannel sheets.

I am thankful.

This year, no matter where we find ourselves,
let us try to make every day
a day of thanksgiving.
