This morning, it’s the second cup of tea and the roasting peaches in the oven and the patched jeans. It’s the birch trees out my window that blow in the breeze and show hints of autumnal yellow. It’s the shuffling of my kids in the other room, the clearing of her throat. It’s the whir of the washing machine.
Yesterday, it was working on a literature essay with my daughter and talking Physics (well, listening on my part) with my son. It was the long walk in the morning and the Pilates that followed. It was the sausage sandwiches for dinner. It was the quick rain shower which cleared in time for my son’s soccer practice.
Tomorrow, well, I don’t know what tomorrow will hold but I know there will be bits to tuck into my heart. Every day there are bits to tuck. Bits to acknowledge and hold tenderly. Bits of this and that…bits of gratitude.
For several years now, I’ve hosted an annual Gratitude Week. It’s almost time again. You can read full details on the special page I’ve created (click the image below) but, in a nutshell, we’ll be holding gratitude at the forefront of our minds (our hearts) for that week. Together. The community aspect – whether you’re joining online, or playing quietly at home – is my favorite part. Knowing we’re all walking that week with a greater awareness comforts and inspires me. I love Gratitude Week.
As always, it’s FREE. Each day, I’ll be sending Gratitude Notes…a simple reflection on gratitude for you to read as you begin your day, or as you pause somewhere in the middle, or as you wind down. Wherever and however feels right for you. Please join me and us…
Sending a little love your way, m
