My challenge...and yours, Day 10

If you haven't read the first post in this series, will you do so before reading on?

In reading The Hole in Our Gospel, is there not an awakening of gratitude in your awareness of gifts you never realized you had and the hunger to, in return, become a giver? In giving and gratitude both, your heart will be changed and your days colored in a radiance you may have never known.

The unthankful heart...discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings! 
Henry Ward Beecher
 And so in thanskgiving I start this week, the streaming sunshine one of the first gifts I list and others...

:: that blue sky and those yellow boots and her sunshine ::

:: potato harvest at Nana's ::

:: a rainbow in a box, every week, from dear farming friends ::

:: generations building together ::
