The Gratitude Continues

Other things I'm thankful for:

Charming cabins in the mountains and the gorgeous scenery of Big Bear Lake


Hunting for pinecones for Finney's preschool class so the kids can turn them into mini Christmas trees, replete with gaudy, gilded decorations--and their parents can treasure them for years

Candy Land

The boundless energy that comes prepackaged in three-year-old boys

Coffee, that sweet, redemptive elixir

A crackling fireplace on a chilly night


Bacon--as much and as often as possible

Walks around the neighborhood during the last hour of daylight

Bundling beautiful babies in blue buntings

Johnny Cash's bass lines and June Carter's unapologetic warmth

The company (and generous help) of good friends and family

Digital cameras and rechargable batteries

Fruity drinks with little umbrellas while on "date night" with my hunky husband
