Scooting between the falling snowflakes I brought in the mail to this delightful card. What is it about bicycles that reaches out to the romantic kid in me? That kind of bike just evokes thoughts of gentle meandering rides through sheltered trails in perfect weather. The inside contained a sweet thank you. I love that people are thoughtful enough to say thanks.
|Love this card.|
I've got creamy chicken stew in the crockpot for dinner, the ironing is finished and there's a book just calling out for me to sink into its story for a little while.
But first, a quote for today. The lack-of-sunshine-gray-skies call for something uplifting.
“If you are lonely, please know you can find comfort. If you are discouraged, please know you can find hope. If you are poor in spirit, please know you can be strengthened. If you feel you are broken, please know you can be mended.”
― Jeffrey R. Holland,
“I testify that no one of us is less treasured or cherished of God than another. I testify that He loves each of us—insecurities, anxieties, self-image, and all. He doesn’t measure our talents or our looks; He doesn’t measure our professions or our possessions. He cheers on every runner, calling out that the race is against sin, not against each other.”
― Jeffrey R. Holland
I'm grateful for the gray days that help me to appreciate to summer days of unending (and sometimes relentless feeling) sunshine. I love the weather here that has contrasts from season to season. (I'm definitely not one of those who only likes fair weather.) I'm grateful for sick days from work. I'm grateful for kind souls who like to go to lunch, for thank you cards and for crockpot dinners.
