December 15 Lights, Laughter and Love

with 13 comments

Welcome back to Three Thanks.

This is the first official Monday post; I’m glad you came back.  If this is your first visit, you can catch up quickly here, or simply read the About page and join us.

Today, my heart is heaped up with gratitude for these things.

  1. The beauty, mystery and magic of the Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights – and all that they inspire.
  2. An authentic belly laugh, shared with a colleague.
  3. Love, given without restraint or expectations – for which I am unimaginably blessed

What are you thankful for?
