I am so sorry that I did not continue the list I had started a couple of years ago of all the things I was thankful for. Every day for me is a gift from God, and within that gift are just tons of smaller gifts for me open and treasure if I'm willing to look, and see, and take the time to wonder at it all. Today, a flock of robins stripped my cherry laurel tree of it's cherries. Those berries have been hanging there for what seems like forever, freezing, thawing, refreezing, thawing again, etc., etc. But today, I guess, they were just right! Either that, or mine were the last ones left in the neighborhood.
I loved listening to their cheerful voices and wondered why I couldn't be that happy with the simple things in life????
I make it all so complicated -- to the point it can make me crabby in a moment!
I want a Robin's heart! I want to see good things in simple places. I want to sit on my branch at the end of the day, snuggle my beak in my feathers and thank the Lord for the berries He gave me, the song He gave me, and another beautiful day! Can it be that hard?????
You've got to watch this! I sooooooo want the book! Be sure to turn off my music at the bottom of the page.
