the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the
common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we
should be particularly grateful. They are the things that fill our lives
with comfort and our hearts with gladness -- just the pure air to
breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home
folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a
cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder
My common, everyday blessing today is just noticing the beauty around me. For the lovers of teapot china, the teapot was a gift in 1995 by my husband from Victoria Magazine, Welbeck - Royal Winton.
Many things bring great delight to me: tea, gardens, flowers, outdoors, food, and friends that cross my path. These all make my heart sing with small chuckles, giggles, laughter, and tears. It is my desire to seek beauty all around me, have the heart of a gypsy, a storyteller.
