30 days of thankful 2020 – #20

Once again, I am thankful for my neighborhood. From funny signs, to beautiful scenery, and socially distanced chats across the road, being home has brought plenty of tiny moments to treasure. Last week, I was was on a video chat with my sister-in-law when I saw a car parked on the street. Two women got out of the car and started walking up to the houses around me. One walked up to my front porch and left a brown bag. I didn’t recognize her and wasn’t expecting anything. What a treat to find a bag of daffodil bulbs on my porch with a sweet note about planting hope. I think I see enough dry weather in the upcoming days to get out and put these in the ground. And hopefully, by the time they push up through the dirt, we will have some new hope in our lives.

  1. I think that is one of the most wonderful surprises in old find on my porch. What a gift! I can imagine how much joy it brought those two women to make the deliveries. And what a beautiful way for you to remember the silver linings of this year—for so many seasons to come.

  2. this is such a beautiful idea … and I must say, scrolling though your posts has put me in a better frame of mind. Diana Butler Bass teaches that we need to be grateful IN all things. and really, putting on a “gratitude hat” helps shine the light on those things we might otherwise pass over.

  3. What a wonderful gesture! I imagine that your neighborhood is going to be very cheerful in the spring when all those daffodils start blooming!
