{Practice} Gratitude

Welcome to our Friday ritual!  A moment to pause and practice gratitude, recognizing the seemingly simple and ordinary moments that make up an extraordinarily beautiful life.  I hope that you are inspired to look back on your week and find these moments as well.  Feel free to share your list in the comments.

* a long lingering conversation over pots of tea with my dear friend * cyclones of leaves * the gentle, and sometimes not so gentle, encouragement of all my friends * an afternoon of sewing * a bright crescent moon against an inky black sky * filling my new little shelf with my favorite old books  *
