Thankful {things I love} Thursday ...

The lilac are swaying in the wind, brushing the kitchen windows.
I have the windows open so their heavenly scent flows in.
The scent of freshly cut grass & lilac ♥♥
Our little bush is showing it's age, and each year we notice less and less blooms.
So I only snipped a few to bring inside.  Just enough to fill a small jam jar.
tied with a little twine ...
{my gorgeous cast iron twine holder w/scissors was a Mother's Day gift from my beautiful daughter}
inspiration for a painting :-)
 
With arms outstretched
I THANK
With heart beating gratefully
I LOVE
With body in health I jump
for JOY
With spirit full
I LIVE

Lilacs are my favorite flower, we can't grow them here in Florida much too hot and sandy. Enjoy their beauty.
Hugs,
