today….I am grateful for…

spotlights and stories at the dinner table

ukeleles and a dear friend’s singing voice

for a total lack of creativity pushing me to rest

knowing that I am loved more than I can ever really know

for kind neighbors that show up with homemade peanut butter cups and friendship, and other kind neighbors that can feel you even on the other side of the street

for one unexpected quiet day with my man

that the years (and sometimes hard work) of babyhood are behind us leaving new space for kid/family adventures

for the epiphany that gratitude can make her way into all the cracks of life, making us whole


…been thinking a lot about gratitude the last couple days, wondering what you are grateful for in the world…I think there may have been a few things I forgot- feel free to fill in with your own gratitude in the comments.

    I am grateful for the sun rising on my day…my health and my family’s health, my job (really!?!) and you….

    I’m grateful for second chances (and third and fourth, etc) for happiness. And for you, too! 🙂

    I am so grateful for family, for the friends who understand my faults and forgive them without reservation, and for the man who loves me. I am so lucky to have all of these people in my life.

    I am very grateful for the people I have had in my life who have made a difference. People who have loved me regardless of how loveable I was at that particular time.

    I’m grateful for the amazing way children look at the world and that they are so willing to share that view with adults if you take the time to listen.

    I am grateful for so many things: having hands, feet, eyes and ears that all work as they should. Being able to work. Having a job. Having food in the cupboard. Having pets to love me unconditionally.

    I am also grateful for you, Patience, for giving us the chance to look at how many things we have to be grateful for. Thank you.

    In addition to tolerating my loud singing a la Maria in the Sound of Music even during their siesta, my parents also gave me a happy childhood, lots of books to read and a sense of humor. Everything good in my life came out of that. 🙂

  6. I am grateful for life. Trials, tribulations, ups and downs, I embrace them all as learning experiences as I overcome I grow spiritually and emotionally. Thank God for the gift of life.
