Our world outside is grey and brown (and white). It’s no wonder that inside we light candles and put twinkly lights on trees.
I was watching the news last night and contemplating how parts of the world are in so much turmoil, and how so many people are in desperate situations – and I mean desperate… there seems to be no hope… it’s hard to comprehend.
I know, I’m being a downer and I’ll stop right here.
I just feel so grateful that my world is simply cold and grey and silent. I am warm, and well-fed, and safe… and so is my family.
Have a grateful Tuesday!

So lovely and serene. Beautiful processing.
Great thoughts. I agree: we have so much to be thankful for…
Such a wonderful winter scene, Barb !
And I agree, so much to be grateful for …
still a gorgeous scene. and you are right – no matter how sad our situation is at the moment, we have so much to be grateful for when others have nothing.
What a beautiful, snowy scene! You’re so right, Barb. We tend to take our good fortune for granted, don’t we?
Your image is so beautiful! What a wonderful winter scene.
And you are right, there is so much to be thankful for
Your winter image is superb! I am thankful every single day for the comforts I enjoy. Although my life isn’t stress-free, it could be worse. I do feel for those going through desperate situations. :(
Beautiful image and good words to think about
The winter storm is very pretty as the snow is falling. One of your fabulous wreaths would look pretty over the shed door! Thankful!

Your image is is wonderful. The Christmas season is a good time to stop and count our blessings.
Amen to the part about being warm, well fed, and the feeling of security and safety. We are fortunate indeed. Love the picture as it captures the words you shared of grey, brown, and white. Happy Tuesday. :)

lovely image! We quit watching the news a couple years ago. That helps a lot. Don’t get me wrong, hubby keeps up with the political stuff that one should. (I just let him, someone needs to care.)
Brrrr… I so agree it only takes a minute to stop and think how priviledged we are …

That is such a beautiful image Barb! I really enjoy your blog and your spirit and look forward to more good things to come in 2014. In the meantime I wish you a wonderful Christmas holiday with your loved ones.
I love that image Barb! And I love the snow! Hoping for some – but no sign of any here yet – just rain, rain, rain… :(
Have a wonderful Christmas! :)

Beautiful shot Barb, and yes, it is totally amazing how much we have to be grateful for. I often feel really guilty and humbled when I see the news and think of all of the terrible poverty and suffering in this world. So fortunate we are! Blessings to you
