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

  1. This is one of my favorite posts. I love the hands! Thank you for hosting an awesome gratitude party. I am deep in Thanksgiving. What a perfect way to start the holiday.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
