New Mercies

Though it's been awhile since I've written a list of the things I'm thankful for, I count my blessings each and every day. There's so much beauty to be found in everyday life. Sometimes, the blessings are subtle, but they are the nonetheless if one just takes the time to search them out. Gifts 354- 373:



♥ Autumn's cat, though an outside kitty, is a wonderful companion. He guards the porch and the gardens with all his might.

♥ having Mac home for another weekend

♥ fresh baked cookies, made with love by the eldest boy

♥ having the kitchen cleaned up properly afterward!

♥ spring rains which lead to growing



♥ laundry hung out on the line

♥ sleeping on air-dried sheets, breathing in the sunshine

♥ windows open wide

♥ warm spring breezes

♥ longer days


♥ peonies poking their heads up from the soil

♥ garden beds readied for planting

♥ soft, new chicks occupying the bathroom

♥ time to work on several quilts

♥ freshly dusted furniture



♥ shiny hardwood floors

♥ a race, well run and finished

♥ new library books

♥ freedom from legalism

♥ new mercies every morning

I am so thankful for simple, every-day joys!
(And I'll be excited to see your peonies, they're one of my very favorite flowers!)

Peonies! My favorite!

Great list as always...

Air dried sheets are the best! Unfortunately, my HOA doesn't allow clotheslines in the ground. Until we can afford a privacy fence for the yard, I'm stuck with indoor drying.

Chicks in the bathroom! Love those soft little things and the sounds they make.

A very nice list you have made, dear Tracy!
