I got a lot of firewood from my lovely neighbours today, so now I have this huge pile in my garage & a nice & toasty house.
I take my hat off to him, that has worked a lifetime doing that…chopping down trees, tending to the woodland. Hard work...& think, he’s way over 80 & still does it with a smile. Then there’s her, gosh, her kindness radiates. I can’t even explain it, but she somehow teaches me gratitude on a whole different level - & grace. She reminds me that there’s a lot to be thankful for, it’s just a matter of perspective…
Guess what I’m most thankful for at the moment is that this hollow space in my heart’s slowly being filled again…through kindness & the simple thing of being seen, & opening my own eyes to the little things in life - that actually is life itself. ~Linn.

I'm sorry for my lame ass updates these days... Trying to do the 'Write 365 days in a row'-thingy. Doesn't work well with home hunting + a health that's crappy. Right now for instant I'm sick to my stomach & in tears, cause of the pain in my neck... It even makes me sensitive to the bright light on the screen. Counting the hours to my physical therapist appointment.
