It's been a day. Some days are harder than others... and some Mondays.. are well... Mondays.

"As in nature, as in art, so in grace: it is rough treatment that gives souls, as well as stones; their luster."
--Thomas Guthrie

Things I am grateful for today:

-flowers from the local flower shop.
-fresh, clean water
-shopping carts. They make life in the store SO much easier.
-seeing friends in the store
-rock salt. A fabulous invention.
-new boots. (my daughter got a wonderful pair of boots online... and they arrived the other day).
-pears. We just bought some gorgeous pears at the store... and they smell wonderful.
-potatoes. Fresh from a local organic farm!!
-barns. I love barns. All types. So I was very surprised to learn that there is a barn called a "Pennsylvania Barn." You can read about it here.
-and when in doubt... and having a bad Monday... always keep in mind... that tomorrow is Tuesday... and you don't have to deal with another Monday for a week :)
