the things you do…

November 5, 2011


over a 100 thank you notes about kindness from the kids at Randolph Elementary School

I don’t know why but I am so, so touched by all the things you do…the letters, the e-mails, the texts, the missions…you would think I would get used to it or it would become just part of life over here but it never does.

Every time I received a message this week with a picture of a lantern, it felt like it was for me. The light, the heart, the intention…all of it. Thank for allowing me to be part of your lives, thank you for the kindness you are offering to so many. Thank you for caring about me and my family, you are good people to be traveling through this world with. I am feeling so grateful.

Please tell me all the things you are feeling grateful for this cool Saturday morning in the comments…and here is the lantern mission if you would like to know more.

  1. Among many, many, many other things…I’m thankful for people like you that spread love.

    I am grateful for a blog that reminds me to be grateful 🙂 I am also grateful for my children and for all of the life experiences that have made me who I am today.

    This morning I am grateful for my son’s light and energy in my life. This morning we woke to the first snowfall of the season. I’m always a little sad because fall is my favorite season, and winter my least favorite. But watching my son excitedly see the white carpet of snow over the grass and run to put on his boots and head outside reminded me that beauty is in everything if we just choose to open our eyes to it. Our children are such great teachers!

    I am sitting here at work on this Saturday morning. I am grateful to have this job. So many are without and ikt becomes so easy to complain about what I don’t have, bjut I am blessed by abundance. The other thing that I am grateful for (okay really the list could be so long!) Is a young man I met on Tuesday. Justin is a 24 year old Army Medic who just returned from Afghanistan. He is so incredibly humble and kind. I sit here with an afghan I am crocheting for him on my lap. I wish I could do more to express my gratitude to him for his service. But this will have to do.

    I am grateful for the kind things shown me this Saturday – albeit it is now Saturday evening. Guerilla Goodness Angee sent me a lantern she made, with the word HOPE on it, and that when the lantern is lit, I should always remember there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I have that lantern lit right now. My mother took myself, brother and sister to a diner for lunch, her treat. She also made me butterscotch cookies to bring home (I took her homemade chicken noodle soup), my cousin gave me a statue of Mary that had belonged to her mother which I put on my deck and it will always remind me of my dear aunt. There was a lot of kindness shown me today for which I am grateful. I am thinking of ways I can show kindness back in small ways that make a difference. Thank you Patience for your inspiration. And for Angee for the lovely lantern.

    It’s the end of Saturday for me. It was a gorgeous fall day in Seattle with the surprise of sunshine, crisp and bright. I’m always so grateful for every extra non-gray day this time of year. My dog and I went for a long walk at one of our favorite parks. I know it’s his favorite because he ‘prances’ when we get there and his prancing…that’s what makes the park one of my favorites. So many things to feel gratitude for, so many lucky moments and best of all today is “Fall Back”. Setting my clocks back always makes me happy! Time slows down a little and as we move into the holiday season, I want to slow down, pay attention, savor my friends, my family, my life…We are all so lucky to be here, together, right now, this second…Thanks for the opportunity to share!

    I’m a little late writing this because it’s Monday morning, but I wanted to share why I’m thankful this past Saturday, my husband and I went to visit my parents and we left Saturday morning. It was a gorgeous drive and to top it all off, it was my dad’s 73rd birthday. It was a Saturday to spend with both my parents and my sister and her family. It was a Saturday of love and family and to celebrate with my parents. There can never be enough of those days for me.
