It’s no exaggeration for me to say I have MILLIONS of things to be thankful for. I shared some of those in last week’s Thanksgiving Top 5 post, but I saved a special one to focus on this week: the LifeLines office I moved into this year.
So yes, I am writing from a thankful place this year. And while I am thankful for the physical space, and the view, and the surroundings, I hope that my inner place of thankfulness is not dependent on these outer blessings. With poet-priest George Herbert, I say:
“O Thou who hast given me so much, mercifully grant me one thing more—a grateful heart.”

What a beautiful writing space, Melanie. Definitely on my dream list. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and thank you for sharing that great quote, too.

Thanks Melanie. The link from my name actually goes to my freelance writing blog, not my personal essay blog, which is what I think you’re talking about. That one is amandaclearyeastep.wordpress.com. :)
They are both worth subscribing to! I don’t always pay attention to which of your blogs I’m reading, but I always like what you say and how you say it. :)
It’s a beautiful space, I love it!
Thank you, Julie—I love having visitors here!
