There are very few people who seem to know me, the real me. But there is a little 4 year old who seems to know everything about me. Saturday night I received a call asking if my grand daughter could stop by for a few minutes. The answer was “Of course” as I enjoy her visits.
By now you probably know that nature is important to me. I am most at home in the wild outdoors. I even bring little things indoors to keep close. My home is decorated with things that represent nature or are from nature itself.
There is the small hurricane glass which holds the feathers dropped at my door each year.

And who can forget my tree branch that will be my Christmas tree this year?
So how well does my grand daughter know me? She spotted this at the store and told her mom I had to have it, because I would think it was pretty.
She was right. I love it. In among all the colorful Christmas ornaments some gaudy (IMO) others just cheesy, it was this one that is clearly not something that can only be displayed for Christmas that she wanted to give me, nor is it an ornament most would associate with the traditional ornaments. It’s already on the tree and while she told me it’s a Christmas ornament I’m going to have a hard time packing this away when the holidays are over.
I know I haven’t unpacked any ornaments yet, but doesn’t this look fantastic on the tree, like it was made for it.
Is there one person in your life that knows you so well it seems as if they might know you better than you know yourself?
As each day comes to us refreshed and anew, so does my gratitude renew itself daily. The breaking of the sun over the horizon is my grateful heart dawning upon a blessed world. ~~ Terri Guillemets
