Simple Saturday

"Joy is the simplest form of gratitude."

A cold Saturday morning, one where White Winged Doves sit on frozen bird baths waiting for feed to be scattered to the ground by all the birds that visit the feeders.  A cold house until the fire roars in the stove, burning bright and warm for us.   A perfect morning to make breakfast on the stove, keeping warm while the food cooks.  Hot cocoa with whipped cream out of a can, to the delight of a 5 year old !  Small hands holding a new camera just for her.  She is following my love for capturing a moment in time, to savor over and over through time.   Memories being made, treasured for all time.   Simple gifts of togetherness and joy is the gratitude.

Thank you so much for answering my question...I never tire of seeing your bird photos:)
