When you have a dream like this, that feels so possible to be real, it's hard to not keep thinking about it during waking hours. I've decided it was a reminder that I spend a lot of time thinking about what I don't have, when the best things are right here - My home. Helen Keller said "Be happy with what you have, while working for what you want." It's ringing true for me right now.
Five is a great number, it's the age of my son. Here are five things that I am thankful for:
5. My 18 year old deaf kitty, who can still climb into our laps and purr and lick our faces when we sleep in.
4. The early morning bike ride with my son to his school.
3. My garden, even in the winter when everything turns brown and hibernates.
2. Good food, like a slider slowburger, or fresh roast beef and kale salad on a hike in the rainy falls. Or a housemade spicy chai from the local coffee/donut shop.
1. My family. They keep me smiling, and tolerate my art making like I tolerate their fart jokes.
How about you? What are you thankful for?
