Painfully Beautiful

After a Thanksgiving that proved to be painfully beautiful, we spent a Together Day outside, enjoying the last of fall.   Leaves were raked and beds prepared for winter.  The dead was removed and made ready for the fresh start to come. The last of the sun’s warmth was soaked into cold weather skin and the hammock swung with legs, arms and giggles.  I gave Thanks… for the pruning, removing and readying of my heart as well as my home.


I’m linking up to Tuesday’s Unwrapped at Chatting at the Sky.  Emily encourages us to take a closer look at our everyday and seek out the given gifts.  Even if they’re painfully beautiful.
