giving thanks

The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but the thankful heart will find,in every hour, some heavenly blessing. 
-H. Beecher

Thankful this week, for 

- protection for friends, brave men and women, a better than expected end to a long few days, a city bound together
- (mostly) quiet, restful vacation days
- many, many art evaluations finished (and a sweet and thorough evaluation in my inbox from my not-so-secret admirer) 
- trash to treasure projects
- impromptu visits from family and friends
- a walk by the ocean with Brian's parents on a dramatic and blustery day, an unexpected local art show
- chair donations for my high schoolers' end of the year project
- preparations for my "Sacred Art" workshop; so excited to teach this!
- catching up with a couple of dear old friends
- a morning with Levi's buddy, Elliott; the boys all snuggled in a wagon, Levi trying to feed and take care of him
- a chair painting date in the living room with a sushi master documentary
- my first out-of-state pendant order
- mexican feast with my sibs and cousin 
- an inspiring sermon
- a pallet of alyssum and pansies, full flower pots around the garden and patio
- lots of time to spend with my loves
