Reading Black.Bunched.Mass.Mom‘s latest post has put me in a reflective mood.
The images she has posted regarding her favorite quiet spot (by the water!) are so stirring. They are bountiful pictures of Nature that feed my city-dweller’s soul.
What are we grateful for today? Why are we grateful? For waking up? For having a fabulous cup of Pumpkin Spice latte from Starbucks because it’s finally Fall?
There are so many things to be thankful for — the big things, and the the little things. We can be thankful/grateful for the train conductor who held the doors open for that extra 5 seconds so we could scoot on. We can be thankful for that ingenious little stray cat in our neighborhood that has chased away rodents/vermin making our apartments/condos/homes that much more germ-free. We can be thankful for the landscaper realizing they made a mistake on the invoice from last season and we’re due a credit/refund. We can be thankful that the leak that we found some weeks ago is not as serious as we thought. It’s a loose valve in the wall as opposed to a break in the pipe!
We can go on and on about the things we can be thankful for. (Like the extra words of words we writers were able to pen in the last few weeks as the summer comes to a close…)
Thank you Black.Bunched.Mass.Mom for making me STOP on my crazy forward driven city movement and having me smell the proverbial flowers. (Wish I could smell the ones you picked! They look so beautiful on your window sill.)
