Gratitude Saturday…

We have had this leek flower in our kitchen for quite some time. Erin picked it over a week ago… 
Each time I catch a glimpse of  this bloom when I am moving through the kitchen, it captivates me, it seems to be more beautiful, radiant and dynamic in its changes each day. It seems to have amplified in size and the colours have become incredibly vibrant. I feel the colours deep in my heart, it is beautiful… This beauty makes me think of all the awe-inspiring aspects of our life, the colourful changes that we experience each day some sad but mostly happy and this leads me to an overwhelming sense of  gratitude …
I am grateful for my family, my husband, that I can stay at home and homeschool our children, that we are all healthy, that we can help others in need where we can and for this wonderful community where we all share our lives on our blogs and listen to each others story of their journey through this life… Thank you to all those who visit here…

    Amazing to me, how being able to stay home with your children has become such a luxury. And having a man as your love and partner who is steady, true, determined and productive. These are the things that women throughout the ages have yearned for, but that the women of our time either spurn (how shortsighted they) or have little hope of getting.

    And gratitude? It is one of the reasons I come back to you time after time. You have eyes to see and a heart that hears – you know you are blessed, and you treasure even the tiniest of those blessings. It shows in everything you do, in the awakeness of your life.

    As to the flower – isn’t it odd that the closer you get to a small thing, the more complexity and elegance you find – and those quiet colors, closely observed, can be magnificence.

    My security word is chaiste.
