Appreciation

There is so much beauty in life - when one feels inspired to share its wonders, sometimes its a simple as looking up at the clouds when the sky is blue and realizing how good it feels to be alive. To feel a breeze as it brushes against your skin or to smell the flowers that can fill the air with their fragrance, especially on a hot day. This weekend was a scorcher, much too hot to knit, but fortunately for me, I can escape to the ocean where the air is clean and its scent fills the air, leaving you with a sense of well being, my lungs grateful for being able to take deep breaths of clean air. I may not have any knitting to share with you, but I wished to share my gratitude for everything I've been given, the ability to appreciate and to love life. Happy Knitting my friends!

Thank *you* for sharing this post!
I sometimes have moments like you describe, but I seldom (never?) have taken the time to write them down and share the appreciation with others. Your words bring that feeling back to me. I appreciate *that*. Thanks.

As they say, it's the little things that count the most. Here's hoping the weather cools down for you soon!

We had the heat wave up here too, and also very little knitting.
