Gratitude, Round 2

Today I am grateful for...

     • my younger twin sisters who turn 50 today.  They are becoming my support base, my confidants, and are fast becoming my best friends.
     • March Madness basketball - love it!
     • witnessing my dyslexic son succeed in school - yes, with some support, but mostly by himself
     • tulips
     • making deeper connections with my daughter
     • finishing the laundry and the smell of clean clothes
     • finding time to write today
     • my brother who can still make me laugh with his antics - even at our advanced age
     • having food in the cupboards, a roof over my head, money in my pocket, a family surrounding me
     • the smell of a whole chicken roasting in the oven
     • April
     • my upcoming spring break - if I can make it two more weeks
     • the end of the school year and the promise of summer
     • a day off tomorrow - if you don't count the trip to the dentist
     • the smoothies that my husband and daughter are bringing home any moment

Quote of the day:  Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel.

  1. I am with you on being grateful for the basics and the simple beauty that surrounds us. I LOVE that quote- that is going in the books for sure. ENjoy spring break. This is my first weekend, tomorrow my first Monday off and I was soooooooo ready. This is how we put energy into the last push of the school year:)

  2. Small things add up to big moments in our lives.It's great to step back and notice what we are grateful for, we have so much.
