it is the season of thanksgiving.
i try to live every day with an attitude of gratitude,
but find that i am especially mindful
of how much i have to be thankful for.
lately we have been experiencing
generosity and unexpected gifts.
i already mentioned the pressure cooker.
and the free sewing table.
be we were also able to finally make use of a
giant solid wood frame that was given to us many years ago.
hubs was given some high-quality self-healing cork.
and he turned it into something beautiful!
i finally got around to unpacking some items from the basement
(packed up last spring when we thought we were moving),
and now these photos and mementos have a new lease on life!
and my favorite new item:
a big dining room table!
a generous new friend let us have
this beautiful set of a table (with two leaves)
and six big chairs!
our old table was so tiny that the five of us barely fit at it.
this table has room to spare!
we had nine people eating here comfortably.
i feel like this new table allows me to
extend hospitality with a little more ease.
thankfulness is the language of a joyful heart.
