It's November . . . a month that we typically associate with thanks and gratitude and abundance.
But, y'know? Sometimes it's challenging to keep gratitude foremost in our minds. Sometimes it's just too much. And sometimes, well . . . let's just say it's been a bit of a rough year around here.
So I'm working hard to find the good.
Yesterday, it was just a small thing.
Yesterday, I realized how grateful I am that most of the trees in my yard are conifers, or are deciduous trees that drop their leaves right in my garden beds where I use them as mulch. (I am also a firm believer in mowing fallen leaves into your lawn as fertilizer -- a Master Gardener Smart Gardening practice.)
So, yeah. Yesterday, I was grateful that this huge pile of crunchy, fallen leaves . . . isn't mine to deal with!
