Day 6 of Gratitute: My things

Quiet Man with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara is one of my all-time favorite movies, for a thousand reasons, but one of them is when she doesn't feel at home without her things around her. As I was moving, and my things were here and there, I felt discontent...and now, with most of my things under one roof, I feel grateful for having "my things about me." *I would have all of my things, but I am old and my back and my knees are not doing great with the stairs and the cold...but by week's end, I should be all settled.

It's odd, the things we find comfort in, but I love to have my projects all under one roof, where I know they are safe and waiting for me to say it's their turn in line.

I like to have my little knick-knacks and memories. Things to touch when I think back on certain events or people in my life. Loves I have lost. Friends I have found. Memories of who I used to be and who I want to become.

I love Maureen O'Hara and how she stands up to the Duke...and I love how the Duke, hard and gruff as they come, goes and gets her things for her so there is peace in the household.
