What Inspires You?

When Thanksgiving comes each year it gives us all a chance to express gratitude and be content for what we have and what we are. Finding the good parts of all situations helps me cope with anything that's going on.

 It is the little things that count most. In my life this past year I've encountered many little inspirations just sitting at my desk and looking out the window.

The view changes depending on time of day and the weather conditions. 

What I noticed is that the same little creatures come to visit on a daily basis. Some of them peck on my window, or if I'm outside, flew right toward me to face me head on, in a friendly way.

I recognized and welcomed them as they added a peaceful continuity to the hustle and bustle of daily living.

After more than a year of this view, along with my daily visitors, still takes my breath away.

Finding inspiration right in my own home is a gift that I cherish. I hope you seek and find your small gifts in life too. Happy Thanksgiving!
