thankful for the season

126. an evening at the Christmas tree lighting in our new city.

127. ballerinas who aren't quite sure of the routine

128. a phone call from a friend inviting me out to see a Christmas event.

129.  eating candy canes late at night

130. Nativity scenes found in grocery stores

 Each day as the celebration of the birth of my Lord and Savior draws near I am filled with gratitude by the simplest of things. I just posted over at  Blackpurl's Knitpickings about our experience Sunday.  We went to our first Belizean funeral.  And I am still pondering all of the things God is teaching me this year. I am sure that more lessons are yet to come.
