What I am about to list, in no particular order, are a bunch thoughts, small ponderings if you will, that have struck and stuck with me through the week. A kind of random snapshot into my heart and mind.

Crawling into bed last night, with the window cracked open…a little sigh of pure contentment, as I heard the soft pattering of rain on our roof…there is nothing more soothing to me than being lulled to sleep by a gentle summer’s night rain.
A enchanting and whimsical post that I happened upon this morning, that brought me, sheer delight…
How about you? Please do tell of your own small ponderings.
