{gratitude lately}

Lately I’ve been grateful…

For dances with this amazing life partner.

For a new [birthday] coffee mug, and for a fluffy cat to claim the box it came in.

For birthday cupcakes.

For time to paint.

And for that feeling of joy and thankfulness that comes from knowing that not just one, but two of your brothers have been fortunate enough to find beautiful love stories – and to marry a woman that will love them, cherish them, and care for them, for all their days. May you have many, many first dances, Jeffery and Katie Beth.

Here’s to gratitude, and to the start of new seasons!
