Winter Gratitude

A few days ago I whined about the weather and I am sorry. I do indeed love winter; I love snow; I love wool. What I don't love is the wind. But that is a small thing, isn't it? Really. It is a very small thing in the sum and substance of life. And, thankfully, Diane reminded me to find joy anyhow. She is right.

So, you will find added to my sidebar a little gadget to for me to post my "Winter Gratitude." While I admit, today it was a little challenging, it was 13-degrees with a wind chill of -2-degrees when I went to feed and Don is gone today so I was on my own, I am grateful.

I have a warm home.

I have winter clothes.

I have wool. Lots of wool.

I have a wonderful "Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House" mug filled with Red Rose Tea.

I have blog friends who listen, encourage, care, and, when necessary, nudge me to look at the brighter side of life. I am grateful....even if the wind is blowing!


  1. Nice idea, Matty, - a place to post "gratitudes".

    Right now - at 5:30am and -11 temps - I'm really grateful for heat and for my steaming mug of coffee! (-:


  2. After not having a heat for a few days in December, you can really relate to being grateful for a warm house and hot water! Winter is pretty though!



Thanks for dropping in on the farm today! I enjoy your comments!
