I would have published this on Thursday, like it should be… but WordPress was being weird. So – better late then never, right?
A few days ago, in the morning I went walking in the woods. I went with most of my family and my good friend and her mother. We went to see the last of the autumn leaves, but besides seeing some lovely fall colors, we got another little delight – cattail fluff!
And that is what I want to feature for my Thankfulness Thursday! (Or Monday… doesn’t quite sound as good though!)
The picture below shows how we found these simple little delights, on the stock and ready to play with. Little did we realize how fun they were going to be!
I’m sure, if you’ve ever played with these funny little things, you know how much fun you can have. Pinch one end a little and what looks like half an inch of compact tan colored semi-solidness then suddenly and softly explodes in your hand and becomes a practically weightless white cloud of fuzz!
Personally, it was rather nice to get away from the political weirdness of the world and the other stresses of life, and I was very thankful to be able to enjoy one of the simple pleasures of life, that of my senses – and my imagination – being tickled by the joys of fluffy cattail clouds.
Sometimes you don’t need that much to be entertained.
My good friend, Addie, who had a lot of fun playing with the silly whiteness!
We all got covered in the fluffiness – it got everywhere!
They got on Abigail’s new red cape! (Abigail, you need to show the whole outfit later to all of our readers! I can’t wait to see it all together!)
Also – I can’t help putting more than one thing for my Thankfulness Thursday post – I’m so thankful for my friend! Addie is very dear to my heart, and almost as close to me as my wonderful sisters! All of my sisters – both blood and sister in the Lord – I am very thankful for!
The wonderful, fun, sweet, lovable, patient and dependable Sarah!
Abby, the delightful and kind, the generous and wise, the thoughtful and caring! Both such an amazing abundant blessing to me! I love you too!
So there you go! Take a walk in the woods with family and friends and enjoy the simple things of life! There’s so much to be thankful for in just these things alone!
