My homegrown potatoes. I'm so chuffed. I have never grown potatoes before. But, potatoes are such a stable in our diets here, I dont know why I haven't tried these before.
Potatoes are ordinary things, not usually something that takes up a blog post - but harvesting these potatoes filled me with a strong sense of gratitude for the ordinary things in life. So I thought I'd just ponder those things for which I am grateful for recently.
True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. SenecaI'm grateful that I can walk, ride my bike, swim and am generally an active person. This allows me to enjoy the outdoors, help others, do my own housework and so many other ordinary things. As a side note, I am grateful for the health professionals who have helped me with my mobility and rehab for active living.
