Gratitude for Little Things


With a joyful heart today, I rejoice in love, family, friends, music and the little things of life which hold great meaning:

-family time at the spa in Skaneateles followed by a tasty luncheon

-friends both old and new are treasures to delight in

-learning and rehearsing new music

-discovering new friends in music groups

-meals at local restaurants

-hugs, kisses, conversations

-a shared faith which is openly practiced

-lending an ear to a friend in need

-rejoicing in the triumphs of others

-laughter and connecting with others

What are you grateful for in life? Take a moment to reflect and connect with someone.  Smile and speak some kind words to that person.  It is our shared humanity which is important.

  3. That was a lovely reminder to be thankful. We had a wonderful visit with our NY friends, and now John is on the way home with grandson David. David will be with us almost a week and a half for Spring break. There are a hundred little things to be thankful for in those sentences.

    • Thank you for the kind words in your comment. Concert is March 17 so we are still in rehearsal. Next one is March 30 and then two in April. These are three different groups. I love all the music and have to try to write and do my social media in between these days. It will slow down my mid-June when I take a break. Family visits are always special times for us. Hope all went well with the school presentation. Keep me posted, please. Enjoy the week. 🙂

    Bonjour ou bonsoir BELLE FAMILLE
    Je passe avec un cocktail d’amitié
    Pour que l’on puisse trinquer ensemble

    Avec un velouté de bonne santé
    Que l’on puisse le partager
    Ainsi qu’une poêlée de gentillesse
    Avec beaucoup de tendresse
    Pourquoi pas pour accompagnement
    Un plateau de douceur en chocolat

    Pour adoucir ta soirée ou ta journée

    Belle journée ou fin de journée

    Bisous Bernard
