Favorite spot in my house

Over the past 8 months, I have fallen more and more in love with my house. Even though it was built only 20 years ago, it has an old soul. I love to sit and surf and sip coffee at the table while I oversee backyard playtime.
There are new discoveries all the time as well.
In April, I looked out the window everyday to see blooms emerge on my wisteria vine.
And, I discovered I have a peony and a cluster of white daisies (white daisies are the signature flower of all the women in my family).

Life seems so busy most of the time. Remember to sit and discover and be thankful.

this is beautiful. i used to just think that a space was space. i mean, there's always that tree, or that window, or that little nook somewhere else in another house...but there's something of a blessing in the way that the light hits a wooden floor or the way the cupboards smell like new cedar every time you open them over the years. places are just places-but yes, they are indeed blessings from Him for us to not only enjoy, but to be thankful for because of their beauty and purpose. i feel that a lot of times these little simple things sometimes bring a lot of joy into life.
