Ordinary Thanksgiving Day 8

Today I’m thankful for candles, pinecones, and Christmas music.

Pinecones are funny things, and yet, I wouldn’t want to live in a world without then. They bring back happy memories from childhood: camping trips and pinecones fights. I love to decorate with them because they also invoke winter. They make me think of a rustic, snowy Christmas.

Candles and Christmas music provide an earthly, temporary, soothing calm for a few minutes during a busy day.

I’m thankful for these passing gifts.
