Acceptance and Gratitude

I don't make resolutions, but thought I'd choose a theme for this year and it will be acceptance and gratitude. I've been stressing and fighting against my increasing inability to stand or walk so I might as well accept it and use the energy eaten up by bemoaning my fate for something positive. Time to cast on that sweater.

And, I have so much to be grateful for that it is bound to be helpful to count my blessings every day. For years I kept gratitude lists and maybe I'll get back into doing that.

I'm grateful today for the pellet stove which keeps the house so warm since it's negative 1 outside with snow on the ground.

Grateful to get a few sentences down on paper so to speak as I have been so blank lately when it comes to writing.
