Gratitude Week 2015 :: Sunday

One special week of practicing daily gratitudes...with you. For the birch trees out back and the way they move in the breeze. For Nature and the way she makes me gasp time and time again. For our pup and the way she loves. For second (and third) cups of tea and/or coffee. For the people [...]

Gratitude Week 2015 :: Friday

One special week of focusing on daily gratitudes...with you. For the lessons (so many) my children teach me. For the quiet of the house, in the middle of the night, when I can’t sleep.

Gratitude {feeling} and {getting ready}

For the sunshine.  And the drizzle yesterday morning. For the hug I got.  After a conversation that brought tears. For my friend.  And the cookies she bakes and shares. For camera, pen, paper.  And the way they help me see this world. For people.  Who sometimes perplex but mostly inspire me. For a roof over our heads. [...]
