A new year – and time to give thanks for all my blessings. -My health, toes that wiggle; fingers ready to do my bidding. The health of all my loved ones – their smiles and their love that surrounds me. My friends -to share a coffee and a laugh with; to talk to on the phone; to go see a movie with; to share good times together with.
My home and garden, all the pleasures they provide for me from day to day. My very own place filled with my treasures. A place where I can do whatever I wish. My home shelters my dreams. I have a roof to protect me from the weather, a kitchen, and quiet places to sit and relax with friends and family or when I need time to myself.
I give thanks also for my eyes and the ability to see all the beauty the world places around me every single day. All the colours – flowers; green leaves; dark red roses. The shapes and textures, the lines you can follow with your eyes. The sky at night filled with stars – last night a crescent moon! And words, all the words my eyes have read, all the smiles my eyes have seen.
