A lovely post, Lori, and a great reminder for us to Count our Blessings! Have a great Sunday!

What a lovely post that applies to each and every one of us. Hope your hand is less swollen today.

As I have told you before, your blog always perks my day up! I too am counting my blessings and one of them is the ability to connect with talented people like you and be inspired by your beautiful photos. Your farm looks so inviting and your words so kind, thanks for all the time and effort you put into your blog so others can remember to connect with nature and be grateful for what we have. Hope our hand is feeling better, I am sitting here recouperating from a knee replacement so I am extra grateful today for being able to "visit" the farm!

Beautiful pictures. When I count my blessings, I also include the blessing of having you as a friend who helps inspire me to create and learn new skills.

Inspirational post and lovely statements about your family and friends of the feather and fur.

Read your previous post earlier this morning just before putting on my support glove on my left hand. As you said, thank goodness I'm right handed but arthritis in the left thumb joint is really giving me a lot of pain. Let's hope we both have healing hands soon.

Hi, Lori, what a beautiful and thoughtful post, we indeed need to stop and count our blessings. Sometimes we are so busy that we forget.


Barb said...

Thanks for the reminder! I have loved seeing the Grandchildren but also can't wait to get home to my garden! I am blessed!

Love your posts. We're all blessed who read them.

I am an older-than-you retired and sometimes "alone" person but hooked on stitching. I was introduced to your website by the owners of a local woolen shop for whom I do sample work. I read your blogs daily and uplifted, enlightened , and grounded. Thank you. Just need you to know you're touching lives, not just by what you're doing, but by who you are. ♥
