Hey everyone! You're just in time for Wednesday Gratitude.
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.
I spent three great days with my husband, sans daughters.
Daughters spent three fabulous days sans parents.
For us: no fancy hotels or room service.
a long walk,
dinner and a movie,
a baseball game,
an air show.
For them: time at the dorm and in the city.
Shopping, cooking, talking, reading.
Two sisters, doing what they do best, together.
Sometimes simple weekends are the best.
We all returned home happy.
It was a good weekend!
I'm very grateful for those three days.
And now, I'm back to the daily routine,
I'm feeling particularly grateful for Guadalupe and his team.
They stopped by the house this morning with their squeegees and soapy water,
and worked some magic on this house.
Eleven exterior French Doors.
Four interior French Doors.
25 BIG windows.
All are clean, sparkling, and spotless.
Daughter #2 came home from school this afternoon and said the light looked different.
Said the rooms seemed to glow in the sun.
That everything looked "crisper".
I noticed it, too.
That bright, brilliant, fall-ish sunshine, streaming through the windows.
NO fingerprints, no dust, no streaks.
Ever notice how clean windows make the whole house feel fresh?
I'm very thankful for the clean, clear views.
I'm thankful I didn't have to climb up the ladder myself,
armed with buckets and rags,
but instead know a nice man and his three nice helpers,
who will take care of that chore for a reasonable fee
and leave with a smile and a handshake.
And give me the gift of sunshine and shining glass.
"I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought; and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder." - G.K. Chesterton
