Common everyday blessings...

"As the years pass,
I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common every day blessings
of our common every day lives
for which we should be truly grateful.
They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness...

"Bright Sunshine on a Cold Day"
Somerset, Pennsylvania

Just the pure air to breathe, and the strength to breathe it;
warmth and shelter...
the bright sunshine on a cold day;
and a cool breeze when the day is warm."

-Laura Ingalls Wilder
