grateful



for:

cheeks
health
one another
light 
pumpkins and the women and fields who grow them
wood
heat
windows
wool
milk and the women and cows who make it
trees
rafters
wine
cider
milky necks
children (and the men and women who birthed them)
chances
fate
birds
bears
company
words
song
greens (& the long-legged deer who cross the garden to eat them)
that we are not hungry
that we are not cold
moonlight
firelight
record players
the stick figure drawings of four-year-olds
that i am here
that you are here
 to keep each other warm through the long winter
