Gratitude in Alphabetical Order: Brian Miller
This morning I want to introduce you to the one brave man who was willing to guest host: Brian Miller. (I did invite a few others, but they didn't even man up and respond!!!) Brian is a gifted writer whose blog I enjoy reading for his ability to see and express his view of the world's beauty, ugliness, joy and sorrow with clarity, honesty, humor and his own wise insights. Earlier this week I left a comment on his blog about one of his exquisite poems, I said: "your writing about humanity has laser like precision! Beautiful, sad...and still so beautiful." That's what I'm trying to tell you about Brian. He's like a writing "acrobat" moving through your heart with perfect accuracy from one place to the next with grace; inspiring awe. Brian's offering today is a playful acrostic list of the things he is grateful for.
I hope you will take the time and treat yourself with a visit to this prolific blogger's site over @
Thanks so much for Guest Hosting today Brian!!!
airplanes (waving as i fly over) ~ belts (how else would i keep my pants up?) ~ coffee (strong black) ~ dirt (it's where i came from) ~ elephant ears (my dad used to take me to get them on saturday mornings) ~ friends (should be self explanatory, but they are salt in life) ~ gravy (mmmm...) ~ hair (maybe it will stay if i appreciate it) ~ i (hey it's me, but that starts with an 'm') ~ jungle gyms (some of the best times) ~ krispy kreme (i have to drive 2 hours, but it is so worth it) ~ lemurs (i could seriously sit for hours watching them, squirrels too) ~ lederhosen (while this is a second 'l', i just needed to laugh) ~ mud (while it is a cousin of dirt, its a whole different experience) ~ night (how else would i see the stars) ~ oompalumpaas (30 years later and i still have that song stuck in my head) ~ once (favorite movie) ~ parenthesis (without them this post would not be possible) ~ quilts (the old patchwork one at my moms house especially, it is so warm) ~ rescue workers (just stand up and applaud them, enuf said) ~ snow ball fights (they keep me going) ~ tabasco (i like it hot) ~ utility belts (they got batman out of more jams on saturday mornings. i need to get me one of those.) ~ vacuums (i tend to be messy) ~ water (there are 884 million people without access to improved water) ~ xylaphones (tink, tink, tink-tink, tink, tink, tink...) ~ yellow (what a happy color) ~ zippers (buttons may look nice, but they can be so hard)
be thankful in the big and in the small....
