What’s the temp where you are right now? Chances are …… pretty cold, right??? MAN… it’s cold out there! I could make this post mentioning a dozen things regarding what I’m thankful for…. just related to warmth!
Last night as I went to bed I was chilly. Very often I will throw an extra light weight blanket on my side of the bed. (My husband’s pretty much a furnace… I’m always cold!) But last night after trying to get warm with the light weight blanket, I gave up and went for the big fuzzy warm one.
Slept nice and warm all night….. just a little crowded, however, cause Scooter likes the fuzzy blanket too. Then tonight as I sit here, I cranked up the fire place to warm up the room and I still sit with a small blanket across my lap. I do like being cozy. I don’t like being hot though. I have to be just right! That’s not picky….. that’s just typical!
Today I really am beyond grateful to be sitting here in my nice cozy house being warm. I can’t imagine what it would be like to not have anywhere warm to go right now. I am truly blessed!
Today I am grateful for heat!! On this chilly December morning….. I woke to see shadows of smoke coming from neighboring houses’ chimneys. I looked out to see the frost on the ground and it occurred to me that I am VERY grateful to be inside a nice warm cozy house where I can control the temperature to what is comfortable for me…. either by turning up the heat , flipping a switch to start a fire in the fireplace,or even wrapping up in a blanket or warmer clothes! How lucky is that!
I told my husband the other day while we were driving home that I didn’t think I’d make a very good homeless person! I DON’T like being cold!! It sends shivers up my spine and makes my back ache! So today….. I am grateful for heat. I am grateful that I am blessed to be in a situation where I have control over that.
When you take a minute to realize the impact that something like heat has on you….. it brings to mind a LOT of other things to be grateful for that we just take for granted. But I won’t expound on those today! I still have 362 days to go!!
