Right now

at this moment,
I'm feeling so thankful
for pretty things that grow along the sidewalk

for new shelves in the kitchen, and the strong arms that put them up

for homemade bread and yoghurt

for our first harvest of green beans

for surviving my first two french classes

for a start to the babe's quilt

for the blue blue blue of summer

and for sleep-ins, kisses, hair pins, and museums too.
