I took a beautiful walk today in the area right behind my house. 

The desert is in full bloom right now.  There's the cat claw vines. 

A red tailed hawk looking for prey.
seeing the beauty of the desert reminded me to be thankful. Thankful for my health,  my children,  great friends,  great family,  a job I enjoy,  and a life that provides me so much happiness. 
As I age I have to remind myself that I need to be thankful for what my body DOES for me.  It has birthed and nursed 2 children,  it allows me to hike/bike and whatever other crazy thing I think to do when the spirit moves me.

Today,  as every day, I am thankful and blessed.

Beautiful words and sentiment.
Thank YOU For the great mitten tutorial.
Last night I tried to knit the waste thumb stitches and it looks disastrous. Your instructions, actually say it might! Phew I'm not frogging today
