On Sunday at mass I was admiring the poinsettia arrangement that was set out in front of the altar. I have always found this plant beautiful and, when many are arranged together, it looks even more beautiful.
At the end of mass the congregation were told that if anyone wished to, they could take one of the plants home. I decided to take one and enjoy its beauty for a little while longer.
The plant is now standing on my side table and can be enjoyed every time I enter the living area. The bright red leaves bring a little colour into our apartment – especially as we are having grey winter days.
This week I am grateful for the poinsettia that I was given. I am grateful for the colour and beauty it has brought to our home, as well as the positive intention that was behind the gift offering.
What have you been grateful for this week?

Thank you for last week’s contributions. I enjoy reading what others are grateful for – the posts make me think of other things I am happy to have in my life. Please remember to send me a pingback so that I know you have participated.
