Love and Gratitude

Praying mantis

In my dream last night, although it wasn’t quite Christmastime, our mailbox overflowed with cards and little wrapped gifts for Mom and me.

Today, it’s the feeling I remember the most…of love and gratitude at these out-of-the-blue surprises…

Like hearing a songbird out of season, or finding a tomato ripening on the vine this close to November, or spotting a praying mantis along the sidewalk…

Maybe if we choose to see the gifts He’s already given, we’d always carry that sense of love and gratitude into every day…and that would lead to expectancy and wonder for each new season of life…

Just some wandering thoughts on this late October evening…

Sweet dreams, everyone!
