1. The breeze that blows in making the wind chimes sing and the air feel full of refreshment.
2. The boys telling me stories about that blue jay that follows them too. I love that they notice things and how when one son who was going out to pick plums, said, " I could hear birds singing and talking in the trees, I came out the gate and all of sudden it was silent, and a flock of birds flew out of the plum tree and I went to pick some and I could feel bird eyes watching me as I picked and I found bird pecks so they had been having a feast. As soon as I went in the gate they started back up the chatter." I was thankful that they notice things like that.
4. I am thankful that I go out in the early morning and I have sunflowers to greet me and the day. They never fail to give me joy.
6. The God gifts of chance meetings. I was in the toy section yesterday and a young boy helped me pick out boy gifts for a birthday present. He was shopping, spending his birthday money. He told me what he thought five year old boys would like best. I was and am so thankful for the sweet people God continues to bless me with that come into my life. Every day.
It is nice to be right here, right now on this perfect day in June.
It is very idle to grow old."
