Gratitude and Growing...
Have you ever noticed how much JOY you get from doing something for someone who is grateful for your effort?
How much MORE you want to do for that person who appreciates you...
Appreciates the things you do for them... little or large... easy or hard... just for them...
Gratitude grows your love for doing things for them... fertilizes it... brings forth blossoms... and fruit.
Roo is one of my favorite peeps to do little hats for... because he loves them, uses them and ALWAYS says, "Tanks, Noni."
I wonder if our own blessings grow or shrink in proportion to our gratitude versus our feeling slighted or overlooked... or begrudging that we should have more? God is always so much bigger than I am. That said, I find many of His lessons strewn in the ordinary business of living... so, I'm going to take away a desire to grow my own gratitude from this one. ;)
The Crochet Love is still growing... neither of these photos has good color (inside, bad wintry light)...
I had it outside in the afternoon light the other day and the beauty of these colors almost took my breath away! I think I need to do about two more feet before calling it quits and starting a border... Onward!
My Roo photos are compliments of Amanda. THANK YOU, Amanda.

May you find joy in the simple... and express gratitude for its magnificence.
