*8 Things. A Gratitude Practice. Winter Songs.


Karin and Linford are helping me surrender to the reality of winter…

*8Things iconHello Magpie! It’s *8Things Thursday. Time to check in with our Gratitude. What *8Things are you genuinely grateful for today? I”ll show you mine if you’ll show me yours…

This week I’m feeling particularly grateful for music, and the way it can carry you through. I find  I have two big go-to playlists. “Summer Songs” and “Winter Tunes.” Here are some Winter songs I just can’t do without:

1 . Over the Rhine’s The Long Surrender
2. The Civil Wars
3. The Milk Carton Kids (all their music is free here.)
4. Sarah McLachlan’s Wintersong
5. Eddie Vedder’s Ukelele Songs
6. Low Anthem’s Charlie Darwin
7. The Weepies
8. The Swell Season

*8Things iconWhat about you Magpie? What *8Things are you grateful for?  Put the short version in the comments, or grab a button for your blog. Give us permalink below so we can stop by! Your list will help others find their gratitude mojo when it’s running a little thin. Thanks for playing!

Over the Rhine is my most favorite band in the entire world. I loved loved LOVED opening up this page and seeing Karin and Linford front and center. They are completely AMAZING, no? *love*
