Over at Simplicity in the Suburbs, my friend Samara has suggested a blog post of 5 things I'm thankful for right now this week and publish a list here on this personal blog. Well, here goes: 1. I am truly thankful for my job at the library. We've just wrapped up our 6 week storytime session and I have been delighted to make many new little two year old friends! (And their parents/care-givers.) I always say I have the "best seat in the house" as I sit on my chair and read stories, show flannelboard pieces while telling a story, sing songs and dance weekly with a crowd who knows how to spin, clap, bounce and tap like no other. 2. I am thankful for hope and anticipation. We're all watching with wonder how A's belly is expanding with an active inhabitant! I love her already. 3. I am thankful for electronic devices that let me keep in touch near and far with the people I love. This week I have "connected" with ones in NYC, Maine, Texas, Michigan, Colorado, Minnesota, and Illinois. 4. I am thankful for our new possibilities of excitement and adventure as part-time city dwellers. Can I mention here that being a "neighbor" of my sister after all these years of living at least an hour away from each other is a lovely side benefit? 5. I am thankful for the season of autumn. Not only do we get an eyefull of colors, but we get a daily surprise of weather temperatures, treats of apple pie and cider, pumpkins inside and outside of the house, and the ability to burn candles earlier in the evening for that magical glow of coziness. The list could go on and on. So many reasons and blessings I could just about bust open at times. And, psssst - pass it on!
