Thankful

Balance

For a wonderful family and supportive friends, for students who teach me, for woods and marshes and other creatures, for books and blogs and email messages, for monks and cats and pine trees, for extra kids and fire and duct tape, for sunshine and snowdrifts and moonlight, for all that helps keep me in balance.

Happy Thanksgiving, jo(e)! You have a wonderful gift with words. I wish I had your instinct for knowing when fewer say it so much better than more!

Have a great holiday season, jo(e). Realizing thanks and then giving thanks truly puts things in perspective, doesn't it?

I always think that pictures of you could be pictures of me. I suppose we favor from behind? *lol* Very odd, but I always do a double take of sorts. :)

Kyla: I will take that as a compliment!
