Spreading Some Warmth

5/30 Today I am thankful for warmth.

The warmth in the colors of autumn, reds, purples, yellows, and browns
The warmth of your love, hospitality, kindness, and graciousness
The warmth from the candle that smells of cinnamon and apples
The warmth of hot water as it flows over my body in the shower
The warmth from the heater as it breaks the chill in my house
The warmth as I cook and bake up something good to eat
The warmth of your arms around me, holding me close
The warmth of your voice as it speaks softly in my ear
The warmth from the bright sunshine on the day
The warmth of familiar surroundings that is safe
The warmth from that big smile on your face
The warmth of a cappuccino in my hands
The warmth in my home, cozy and snug
The warmth of my cozy quilted bed
 The warmth from knowing Jesus
The warmth of tender affection
The warmth of having friends
The warmth in my very soul
The warmth of peace

Wishing you peace, joy, and happiness...

Hi Cora!

I trying to do a little catching up today...after being away awhile! But when I come to your "place"...I always want to stay awhile! So warm and cozy!! :D I love the way you have a way with words! And your post about the evening night and the rain...I felt like I was right there with you! Honey, YOU should write a book or a gift book with your words and your talent with photography! I don't know...but I think you would do really really well with it and sell millions of copies! :)

Hugs and blessings, my friend!

Hi Again Cora,
I also make and sell aprons, and your daughter's idea to include the history with each apron is such a good one! Would she mind if I copy her?
Thanks for visiting my blog! I will definitely be back here to visit you again!

Well that's a cute little thing to do on your blog... love the way this tapers down. Warmth... yes, I got side-tracked there for a minute with your cuteness. Nicely said Cora. On this chilly fall day, I enjoyed reading your post and it did warm me up and make me all fuzzy inside. =] It also reminds me how blessed I am to have so many things that warm my heart and soul. Love your post, as always.
