Gratitude for Everyday Beauty


I did some yard work over Thanksgiving weekend. This is what my tarp looked like when I pulled it out to drag leaves around. I was so struck by how gorgeous it was. It would’ve never been so stunning had it been deliberate. It’s just years of painted furniture and projects done in the driveway.

I couldn’t sleep this morning and I listened to a TED Talk. David Steindl speaks to one simple thing that will make us happier—GRATITUDE. I instantly felt so grateful that my Mom, Linda in Burke, South Dakota taught me to see beauty in everything. Thanks, Mom!
