monday gratitude list: raindrops, rubber boots, and daffodils
So today, I’m grateful for umbrellas.
And pockets—for tucking otherwise numb fingers inside.
Daffodils that, despite the return to the cold, are standing strong and spritely shining.
Rubber boots for puddle-jumping.
Hot cocoa scented with cinnamon.
Buds bravely greening on the rhododendrons.
Smiling faces of people happy to be walking places.
A still-warm croissant, crackling and easing when you pull it apart with fingers teasing.
Bike-rides when the sun is shining, gerbera daisies brightly riding
inside your basket.
“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain”. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
