Christmas Decorations

One of my favorite things about Christmas is decorating. I love the lights in particular. During this dark time of year, Christmas is definitely a bright spot of the winter. Merry Christmas!

The Princess Bride

The movie The Princess Bride was on tv last night. It is my favorite movie of all time. I can't believe I don't own it. Anyway, I'm just thankful for the people who made this movie.

A Warm Cup of Cocoa

It is absolutely freezing out today. It's one of those days that just chills you to the bone... and I'm so thankful for the chance to curl up with a hot cup of cocoa and a good book.

The Smell of Fresh Laundry

Today, I'm thankful for my washer and dryer and how easily it is to get my clothes clean and fresh-smelling. For so many thousands of years and in so many places still around the world, laundry is such a chore - bringing it down to the river or carrying water for miles back to your home in order to do it there. And still, the clothes don't always get fully clean or they can be stiff when they dry. I have been, at times, travelling or in third world countries where I've had to do my laundry like this, and I never want to take these things for granted.

Being inside a warm house on this cold, rainy day

Today, I'm thankful for roof over my head and a fresh delivery of oil for my furnace to keep me warm.
