This hymn by Eleanor Farjeon, one of my favorites, is set to a traditional Scottish Gaelic tune and was published in 1931 as a hymn to give thanks for each day. Forty years later, Cat Stevens released his beautiful rendition.
The flower is fittingly named Glory Bush. Photo taken in La Fortuna, Costa Rica, June 2014.
On Small Business Saturday, I am happy to live in the same neighborhood as Angelina’s Cafe, Cycle Depot, Double D Market, Shop Girl and West Main Pizza.
Today I am thankful that the Colorado Springs Police Department has arrested the man who hit us. One month and one day since he was featured on Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers Featured Fugitives; one month and two days after he hit us and fled the scene.
Happy Thanksgiving. I especially like when Laura’s birthday falls on Thanksgiving, just like the day she was born. It’s been a lovely day, my family is happy and (mostly) healthy, friends have reported great news over the past week, and tomorrow is a day of rest.
November 19. I am thankful for 23 years and counting.
(and oh my goodness, those beautiful intact clavicles!)
November 7. I am thankful for kindness. I have encountered so many really thoughtful people over the past couple of weeks, far outweighing that one big jerk. Thank you my kind friends.
November 5. I am thankful for Scrabble, especially the iPad version that I can play in the middle of the night when I am having trouble getting back to sleep.
