There have been times this week when looking for the gifts has been hard, but once I put pen to paper the list kept on growing and a peace fell upon my soul:
3 startling graces of God ~ ever patient, ever loving and ever merciful
Bird song and chatter in the garden.
Winter sun making its appearance.
Another good day in the learning zone ~ Innuit Tribes ~ you tube documentary, narrative recall, penmanship and art.
A morning on my own listening to a talk on Ignatian spirituality whilst knitting.
A gift bringing quiet, prayer ~ much needed loft time, meditation, sleep.
Dave playing a Happy Families game with Pip.
Doorstep food delivery.
For being able to offer words of encouragement to another mum across the miles ~ the wonders of face book and one of its many positive uses.
Fireside knitting and peace.
A sparkling clean cooker!
Make and Cake friends ~ a time to switch off, relax, laugh, share, eat and craft.
Saturday Skyline and the sun playing peek a boo through the clouds.
For Pip saying, "I love you mummy"
For Benedict asking for a good night kiss and a hug.
The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything.
Four happy shots of this past week:
"Yay, there was enough wool!"
