#thankfuls

we count them daily 
these gifts, these rifts that allow 
our worry to rest. we wrestle them 
into our pockets and let them over
-flow. we know they heal fear and 
draw us nearer to true: we’re blessed.

    ah De love this, like most of your writings. though i must say looking at the title, i was thinking of a thankful as being a quantity, like a handful or something….

      I love that!!!

      My MIL brought me the cutest heart-shaped measuring cups and spoons on TG. I’m totally going to start cooking in measures of thankful from now on.
