Good Morning Xangaland
This is my Three Little Thankful’s post assigned by our Kween for the Kween_of_the_Queens blogring. Go there if you want to read more posts about everyone’s little thankful’s.
My first of three little thankful’s is, unoriginally, the microwave! A petty little thankful I know but oh the joy! Without the microwave leftovers would be a pain instead of an indulgence. Just think about any holiday meal with leftover. Without the microwave you would be remaking that meal every time, but with it you can enjoy it over and over with minimal effort. God bless the person who invented this helpful little tool.
My second little thankful is my garden. It is a place where I can disappear for a minute, an hour, a whole day…. I can get my hands dirty and create something beautiful. Here in Phoenix, AZ the summers burn everything but the winters are fantastic. I will literally have blooming flowers from now until June. I love to sit on the bench just outside my front door and watch the hummingbirds at the feeder, (which I need to refill by the way!), smell the flowers, just soak it all in. This is a blessing I could live without, but it brings a richness to my life I would sorely miss.
My third and final little thankful is Earl Grey Tea. It is my quiet beverage. It is the thing that makes an ordinary day seem like a quiet afternoon reading a good book by the fire. Funny how one cup of tea can change the mood of a day from normal to extraordinary, isn’t it? I like mine with a teaspoon of sugar and a bit of milk, though I could drink it almost any way. For me it calms my nerves on a bad day, wakes me up on a sleepy day, and settles me after a stressful day. This little thankful is nothing but a very small indulgence that makes a big difference and makes my life a bit more cheerful.
I’m especially grateful today. I’m still sick and I just indulged in a cup of tea and I’m feeling so much better now!
Well there you have it, my three little thankful’s. May all of you be blessed during your thanksgiving season with the little things around you.
Song for the day? Pennies From Heaven by Frank Sinatra. Because that’s what little thankfuls are, pennies from heaven.
