I am also thankful that the days will start getting longer after today and pretty soon we won't be rising in the dark.
Even though my neighbour is very close and so far non-existant, I am thankful for the sky outside our windows. From the dining room we see this unfinished house...
from the living room we see marvellous sunsets through the arches on our front porch...
and I am always able to spot the beauty of the flowers that some dear soul has planted 'just-for-me'!!!
At night from my side of the bed I look out our bedroom window and see a wonderful display of stars on clear nights. I thought the stars were fantastic on our little island but they truly show off their splendour here on the desert.
We are thankful for the opportunity to meet new people and start to form new friendships.

"Life has taught us
that love does not consist
of gazing at each other
but in looking outward together
in the same direction."
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Tonight I am thankful for my childhood family who knows me better than I know myself most days. Thankful for our children who are a strong support for me to lean on...they send me cheer and smiles which warm my heart.
I realize that if I am able to make this 'thankfulness list' I am most fortunate.
Good night, God bless and be well.
