Thankful Tuesdays

3 things I'm thankful for:

1. Air conditioning that works! (knock on wood) It's supposed to be 109 today.

2. I woke up to the wonderful aroma of the Dutch Apple Bread that L made this morning.

3. This blog: Ferdinand's Gifts. Janis' son, Ferdinand, was stillborn in the third trimester, and she writes about her experience with that and her rainbow daughter Lyra. The stories and thoughts and the journey I've read on this blog resonate with me on a deep level. And she chose  beautiful names for both her children, but obviously I am biased towards the name Lyra :)


  1. mmmmm, Dutch Apple Bread sounds so good!

  2. Hope you're staying cool. It's really hot here, too, but we're trying to tough it out without using the A/C much in order to save $. It's awful!

  3. Yep, Janis' blog is wonderful. One of the first I found, almost two years ago now. I am thankful for your blog also :)

  4. I hear you on the A/C...I'm also SO thankful for it...it's been awful this past week!!! Thank you for your e-mail earlier, sorry I haven't responded yet, very busy day at work! Hope you're doing well:)

  5. aw... that is so sweet.
    I LOVE your blog, it is a feast for the eyes and the soul.
    I am thankful for YOU. xo
