little things, around home, to be thankful for

The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do lifeโ€™s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. ~Robert Louis Stevenson

  1. Hope Davey’s head is ok. (Don’t tell him I called him Davey….I still think of him as Davey-Do!)
    Oh, the drama…when Mom’s do not get things just right! *sigh*
