Thankful {things I love} Thursday...

Thankful for ~
Stray Gifts
in all shapes and sizes ...
***
Pleasure is spread through the Earth
in stray gifts
to be claimed
by whoever
shall find them
~William Wordsworth~
Snow - and lots of it!  Finally.
Our own magical Narnia
 
Archer - Sometimes I wish I knew his story ... sometimes I'm glad I don't.
Truly, a "stray gift".
You can see the absolute beauty of a fallen snowflake on the fur of a Black Lab.
Nothing lovelier!
 
And then ... tucked away, hidden amongst some bare branches in the white forest...
yet another "stray gift".
Oh how I love Winter & the wonder of it all.

Our babies truly are gifts from God aren't they... Archer looks just gorgeous in the snow, and I love your little stray heart of snow... xoxo Julie Marie

I love to find hearts in nature. Archer is lucky to have a Mom that likes the snow as much as he does.
