Gratitude Thursday: November

 I am thankful today for a small thing that my mother-in-law made for me. 

I'm not sure what it's called. It's a sort of cozy. I can put it around a bowl or my giant mug when I use the microwave and it keeps my hands from being burned when I retrieve my soup or tea. And, because my office is upstairs in my bedroom during the pandemic, the cozy has saved the carpet on my stairs from wayward drips.

My mother-in-law made several of these for me and our family. Every time I use one I think of her and am grateful.

Yesterday, when appreciating my cozy I attempted writing a naan as I saw shared by the Poetry Sisters last week. 

I'm sending you all some warm and cozy thoughts today. Our friend, Ruth is hosting Spiritual Thursday this month. Find more warmth at her blog, There is no such no such thing as a God-forsaken town


  1. A tea cozy is a lovely gift to remind you of a dear person, Linda. I have never seen one like the one you're sharing. With thanksgiving, I gladly take your warm and cozy thoughts and tucked them away. Peace be with you today.

  2. Thank you for this cozy post! Best and warmest to you...

  3. I love handmade gifts. They’re infused with love. Much warmth emanates from that lovely photo - grateful for the “sunrise memory” and “story seeping” - such beautiful phrasing!

  4. I've seen these cozies somewhere before. I love that yours is handmade and brings you comfort along with your favorite tea.

  5. Lovely to have such beauty to wrap around a cup of tea of mug of soup.
    Warm and cozy is perfect, as are your words on the cup. I especially love, "story seeping."

  6. I've never seen a cozy like this one. I can definitely relate to spilling tea drops on the stairs, so would love one myself!
    The poetry form is new to me, too. I love the sound and imagery of the last line: "story steeping."


Friendly, positive comments and feedback are always welcome here. Please let me know I'm not just whistling in the dark!
