In years past, I’ve blogged daily for Gratitude Week. This year, however, I’ve decided to post just once as we begin our week together. I’m sending out Gratitude Notes each day and I’ll be posting daily on Instagram, but here I’ll post just once. I encourage you to leave comments and/or links to your own blog posts and/or links to Flickr shots or Instagram shots on any day of the week! If you share your thoughts and links, we can visit and share your gratitudes with you. xo
Here is some of what I’m grateful for, some of what fills my heart…
For the birch trees and the winds that blow through them. For their yellowing leaves and the graceful way they fall to the ground. For the swing that hangs from the leftmost birch tree and for the (still sort of little) girl who swings there.
For the garden which I’ll soon put to rest. For the patience it teaches me. For the blueberries. For the onions. For the cantaloupe.
For my desk, from which I write this. For its worn top and warped legs. For the support it offers as pen moves across page. For the haven that it is.
For my children and my husband. For our pup. For my sisters and mother and step-father. For Daddy too. For friends. For kindreds. For humankind. (we are a complicated species, are we not? but I love us, have faith in us.)
For cookies and sourdough bread. For tea. For coffee. For love biscuits and lemon pancakes.
For photography. For words. For art. For love.
For those of you with whom I connect here, on Instagram, and in my e-courses. You are part of my journey.
Sending so much love today and this week, m
And you? What are the gratitudes of your heart right now?
