Grace in Small Things No. 541

  1. The complexity of flower petals continues to amaze me.
  2. We washed our heavier comforter and put it on the bed now that the evenings are getting colder, which means I can enjoy the weight of cozy blankets again.
  3. Robitussin One is a godsend.
  4. I was able to visit dear old friends in another city earlier last week, and it sets something aright inside me every time I do.
  5. The amount of good will and friendship I find online continues to outweigh the bad, and I am truly thankful for the communities I have found.

Wage a battle against embitterment and take part in Grace in Small Things.
