Last evening, I put on my coat to put the hens to bed
and then followed the moon down through the trees.
We have had such clouded days and tonight the clouds opened up for just a moment and
let the early December moon shine through.
It's such a beautiful peaceful moon, shining through the old apple tree's bare branches.
The grass beneath, crisp and crunching under my boots.
Looking up at it, in the quiet night, I can't help but feel so thankful for our warm little farmhouse
and the people I love inside snug by the fire and thinking how very blessed
we are with good and simple pleasures.
I pray that all of you have such a night.
