Gratitude


“Some people grumble that roses have thorns; I am grateful that thorns have roses.” 
~ Alphonse Karr, A Tour Round My Garden

I'm grateful today for:
flowers blooming in the garden
bees buzzing in those blooms
the promise of seeds sprouting
pathways strewn with straw
a shady spot under the oak tree to sit and enjoy a cup of tea
words of encouragement from unexpected places

Thou that has given so much to me, Give one thing more--a grateful heart;
Not thankful when it pleases me, As if Thy blessings had spare days;
But such a heart, whose pulse may be Thy praise.
~George Herbert

What are you grateful for today?

Love,
Catherine Ann
