"in the darkest spot of earth, some love is found"

I thank Thee, too, that Thou hast made
Joy to abound;
So many gentle thoughts and deeds
Circling us round,
That in the darkest spot of earth
Some love is found.

-Adelaide Proctor

  1. Yay for Jonny! I will never forget him in Spanish class the very first year I taught at New Hope: "FUERTEMENTE!!!!"
    I don't know if you guys remember that, but it's emblazoned on my brain.
    Love your list!

  2. your list is lovely. our end of summer is hardly temperate, so i'm rejoicing WITH you for you to have that!
    and knitting and sewing, especially w/ a grandma? my heart melts with shared gratitude!

  3. Love you list. I hopped over from Anna's ... don't you love starting out your week with giving thanks?
