Nibble and Sing

Is anyone else out there feeling a little mopey?  Glands swollen?  Cold sores?  Graphic enough today? 

If there ever was a time for griping, it’s winter.  Then again, winter is the best time for being thankful.  No matter what I’m dealing with, things could always get worse.  And if things get worse, there’s still plenty to be thankful for.

So today I will not be very interesting or zippy or witty… just grateful…

…for you – thank you as always for stopping by to read my musings.  I am truly honored.

…for chicken broth – now don’t you feel special? 

You rank right up there with CHICKEN BROTH.  You should really feel very special.  It’s miraculous stuff.  Sniffles, flu, it will fix anything.  A nice hot ladle-ful is all I need.

…for birds. 

That’s right, birds.  Riley, Quinn and I were puttering around the backyard today and the chirping stopped me in my tracks.  God must have known we’d need cheery noises now and then.  They remind me how simple life is: get up, nibble something, and sing.

Once I’m past the getting up part, nibbling is easy (thanks for the chocolates, Jon!) and singing is absolutely like breathing. 

If it’s been a while since you sang, give it a whirl.  As long as I can croak out a note, I’ll chirp my tune in my corner of the world.  Happy chirping in yours.  🙂

  1. Hmm. I need to get into the whole thankful spirit thing. It’s cold, gray, wet, the kids have been so spatty at each other that I have sent them up to their rooms to play alone for awhile, the house feels too cold and I can’t think of anything to get this afternoon set on a different, more cozy and joyful sort of trajectory. Grump grump grump. Thankfulness… come on… I’ll have to work on that…

    • I’m saying a little prayer for you, because I know exactly the feeling. This morning I felt like lying in bed with a steady drip of chocolate goo in my vein. Did NOT feel like making the day fun for the boys. I shall go back to my old recourse – blaring some Irish dance music and cutting a rug with my silly sailors. 🙂 Have a good night, my friend.
