i am grateful.
:: my husband…who loves me and our two children beyond the limits of any words i could conjure here + he makes me laugh
:: my daughter…who delights me with gifts both found in nature and crafted with her little hands
:: my son…who still hugs me, kisses me, snuggles with me
:: me…who has the fullest heart having shared this week of gratitude with you…thank you for coming here…thank you to those of you who joined the party on your blogs…thank you to those of you who left comments, every one of which made me smile…thank you for joining the party in your homes and in your hearts
this is our last day of gratitude week 2012.
beyond today, i wish you continued exploration of gratitude in the quietness of your heart.
it can be both a gentle and powerful practice.
for anyone looking for a special place in which to record your gratitude, amy gretchen is selling some beautiful gratitude journals over at the squam holiday bazaar. click here and scroll down until you see “gratitude journal by amy gretchen”. the journal cover features some of amy g’s beautiful photography. inside, you’ll find a year full of days, with five lines per day for listing your gratitudes small and large. i’ve been using one of amy g’s gratitude journals for close to a year now. it rests on my bedside and calls me to pause and reflect before closing my eyes each night.
i am grateful for the life that i am living. i wish you love and light in the life that you are living.
sending a little love your way, m

I have thoroughly enjoyed this week … visiting here and following links to other contributors as I quietly notice my moments of gratitude at home … thank you all …
And I am so grateful for your beautiful corner of this blog-world, and for overlapping on a woodland path too.
This photo idea is lovely. I’m totally going to steal it :)
Here is the weekend installment of my gratitude counting. http://beautifulladybird.com/2012/11/18/a-grateful-weekend/
Thank you so much for organizing gratitude week! Even though I was late to the party, this is a practice I will keep up. Perhaps Gratitude Saturdays on my blog? Here is my link for today.
Eloquent! This post was my favorite of the week. It’s been so special to get a peak this week of what you and others are grateful for. I am grateful to all of you for sharing this week.
Love this post, great set of images. Thank you so much for hosting gratitude week, I’ve loved it too.
I LOVE this set of photos! It really made me smile.
thank you for putting it on – it has been a great week…finally getting me to stop life for a moment each day to take the time and be grateful.
what a lovely journal…that’s just what I need to create for myself!
I am grateful for memories. I haven’t always been grateful for memories. Some mock; others point fingers. But today I am grateful for memories, even those that mark my serpentine journey to right now. I don’t feel mocked any more, or guilty. I feel complex, diverse, growing, evolving.
This is a beautiful thought!
