1000 Gifts - Glass Peony Plays the Sax

The more I thank, the more I see to be thankful for.
The more I set myself on the path of gratitude, the further from ungratitude I find myself.
This week has been delightful.

79. He came home.

80. He spoiled me ;)

81. I have a house. I got time this week to potter and love on the stuff around me, grateful for the story it tells, the casual, beloved pieces that sit and receive my smiles. I may live in a rental property that is does not 'speak my language' but I am able to make a haven none the less, some place of peace, restoring heart to those who fill my home. My husband walked in from airports, hotel rooms and offices. He walked into birdsong, fragrance and the arms of green, homespun grace and sat suitclad and mute, on the bridge back to home and whole. This is family.

82. For this little chap that the children discovered in the bottom of the garden.

83. For the profound activity of building.

84. For time with my sister and making inspiration boards to lay heart-vision. This now hangs on the wall over my desk and gives me much to rest my eyes on in between the words.

85. For rainwater that my two big girls carried in for me to rinse my hair with. They want to see out how soft and shiny it will be after I'm done. No pressure Mum...

86. For sprigs from the bottom of the house; humble perfume to sit in the sun and fill my senses with the morning.

87. For a place to give voice to both the little and big girls in me. May it always be the sound of truth, and shibboleth, a flow or torrent of life.

This week has been leaping with words such as sweet silk, light and courage; glass, peony and blossom; healing and living. Falling notes from a saxophone, the pages of a great book on love, the warmth of spring. It is a dance and the glory keeps shining off drops in the heart of the bloom.

"He came home." Always my favorite.

this post took my breath away. there are very few real natural poets in the world (despite what many poets think!) and you are one of them. From the scrumptious header of this piece, through the photographs and beautiful words, to the final five words which summed it all up so perfectly ... exquisite. And the best thing: authentic, radiant with love.
