Thankful Thursday

  Thankful Thursday thoughts?  Am thankful for reminders to breathe that come in the form of beautiful clouds and fresh winds and sunsets in a vineyard. Am thankful for walks and talks with my kids coming and going and purpose (which often looks and feels a whole lot like work. ) Thankful for the sweet rest that comes after hard work…and the hard work that comes after sweet rest.
