I saw this list of prompts for a gratitude journal. As I read through them one caught my eye.
I remember saying that my hospital stay this summer was so devoid of color. I felt starved from it and took great delight in the blue sky as Sir Old Man finally took me home. I commented "I forgot how blue the sky can be", and then I cried. I am grateful for blue....always. Here are a few of my favorite things in blue.
This quilt used blocks from a monthly block exchange at guild from many, many years ago. When I decided to clear out the UFOs, this was the first project I completed. Simple and serene. I love the classic look.
Some of the blue baubles on a winter wall hanging from a few years ago. All the shades of blue from icy light to dark of night shades created this
one . I used decorative stitches on my machine, with blue threads, to create the bead/chain between the ornament shapes.
In the garden window in the kitchen are an assortment of a pale blue vase, a bottle, a canning jar, and a small pitcher. I enjoy the light reflection during the day when the sun is shining on them.
Blue is my favorite color and I will always be grateful for it......
And purple runs a close second.
And on this Thanksgiving Day, I am grateful to still be blogging. I am grateful for all the emails and comments, and notes that were sent this summer and fall during my health crisis. Not only did they lift and carry me, but each one meant a great deal to Sir Old Man.
I am grateful to my therapists that pushed, and prodded me to keep going by their belief in me. They challenged me to go home and live. It was a challenge I took to heart. Today, I can walk, I can sew, and I can be semi-independent. That is so huge. Yes, I have much to be grateful for. ♥💙💙
