Joy of Thankfulness

So yes, last week my co-op order arrived; well, December's order did!  Fortunately, Suma are absolutely amazing.  Our driver was in a hurry when she delivered the order, but she phoned me later on her break and offered to drop off what we needed on her way through the area this week.  She'll also be collecting the items that we don't need.  I'm thankful I'm able to order from an ethical business like Suma, who are willing to work with me even when I make mistakes! 

I'm thankful for completed sewing projects, fun times with the kids during half-term, visits from friends both new and old, and a few hours of listening to my husband read aloud.  [We're currently reading Follow Me to Freedom]  I'm thankful for safe travels for my father, going to the Middle East; and for my sister, returning to the United States.

Last but not least I'm thankful for recent creative time with my daughter.  She is beginning to draw interesting forms and shapes.

And she loves to help make cookies.  She seems to have inherited a cookie-dough-eating gene from Grammy and Auntie Jessica.  [I can't stand raw cookie dough!]  That's a bit of cookie dough clutched in her little hand, about to surreptitiously make it into her mouth...

"I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought,
and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder."
-G K Chesterton

    I really enjoy peeking in on your family! Our family in Pennsylvania lives a similar lifestyle, and it is always cool to find someone like-minded. And I want a heart cookie. Love and light!

  2. Thanks! I agree; it's fun finding people who live similarly. :)
