simple gifts.

the past few days i’ve been in a serious funk. grouchy, snappy, and very off. and for no apparent reason, other than sleepiness. today i’ve focused on getting my head in a good place, and enjoying my day. it’s gone much better. and i know i always, always, always come back to it: gratitude is what matters.

so today i’m thankful for: my little garden, cinnamon rolls and friends to share them with, my family- immediate and extended, sunshine, dirty dishes and the meals we’ve enjoyed together, my toy inhabited living room floor and my kids imaginations, theodore’s new teeth finally popping through, my love and his patience, my camera and encouragment from nice folks, cardigans, green fingernail polish, inspiration and brewing projects, the year of adventure, and slowly untangling the knots in my mind.

‘Tis the gift to be simple, ’tis the gift to be free,

‘Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,

‘Twill be in the valley of love and delight.
When true simplicity is gain’d,

To bow and to bend we shan’t be asham’d,
To turn, turn will be our delight,
Till by turning, turning we come round right.
