Guess what today is? It's, I'm thankful Friday over here at alittleglassbox & like last week I invite all of you to leave a comment as to what you are thankful for. Today I am thankful for the ability to be able to enjoy the simple things. Even as a little girl I found pleasure in climbing bales of hay, flying through the air in a tire swing, and eating peanut butter & honey sandwiches. As an adult... a simple drive, a steaming hot 190 degree latte, a sweet comment from a reader, Starbucks ice, or the smell of laundry detergent once the hot water hits it, all make me ridiculously happy. As I get older I am becoming more aware that this love of simplicity is not only what gets me through the days and what makes the moments of my life in-between the huge events more fun, but I'm realizing that not everyone has this ability. So today I am thankful for finding happiness in the tiny moments, which make this time of year so much more special. I get to enjoy family, birthdays, twinkle lights, cold weather, cute coats, dark nights, and even pumpkin pie (which pretty much rocks my world).
You have got to try this recipe, it makes my taste-buds bust out in dance at the club. Just sayin'. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend full of simple moments of your own. Hug your family, take a funny photo, dance in the street, or take a bubble bath. No matter what, find that smile and that thankful spirit-it's contagious!
