You will notice that this playlist fails to attend to two “rules” (which are more like guidelines): it includes more than one song by the same artist and it includes covers of the same song by multiple artist … it does so because this is my birthday and I’ll play what I want to. I took the day off which is why I was able to do as much as I did.

A treasure I am thankful for

Treasure Nov 21

A place.
A safe place.
A place of welcome.
A style of life.
Home.

Traci Smith, author of Faithful Families: Creating Sacred Moments at Home has provided a gift of the November 2018 Gratitude Every Day calendar. I am using it as an opportuity to revisit photos and post them as they speak to gratitude.
