The Grateful List

Today I'm honored to have my friend Shari as a guest blogger. I'm inspired each and every day by her photos and thoughts; if I only have time to look at one photostream on Flickr on a given day, it's always hers. Her photos are here; her blog is here.

Each day my grateful list expands. Last week I was thankful for the evergreens providing much needed color in the drabness of stick season, sunshine passing through cattail fluff, a phone call from my husband inviting me to an impromptu lunch, another day of wearing only a lightweight jacket, and the indoor farmer's market. I am grateful for life, for every little bit of its goodness, and I love how I never know what may be on my list tomorrow. Puddles, chocolate cake, a red fox dashing across the field? We are so lucky to be the recipient of so many days full of wonder and simple pleasures. I try so hard not to forget it.

I totally agree, trying really hard not to forget all I need to be thankful for.

That photo made me smile in memory of our Michigan days. The kids had a science teacher who taught them how to make cattail pancakes.
Happy Thanksgiving!

Amazing photos- I love the way you look at each day. They all hold something very special- sometimes we just have to look a little closer. Your photography captures much of that. Thank you for sharing.
