Gratitude is an ongoing practice in my life. LIke many things there are times when I am dedicated to it and try to see all of the blessings in my life and other times it goes by the wayside and gets buried under a pile of unwashed laundry and dirty dishes. As I put my children to bed tonight, we talked about the blessings of the day. I walked a way smiling and wanted to share with you some of the things that we are grateful for.
Right now Lil’C is grateful for…..
cider donuts, apple picking with friends, her new MOPS class with her good buddy, a letter from a lake friend and a special dinner play date where she got to play princesses.
Right now Z is grateful for…..
seeing so many friends today, playing Minecraft Kingdom with his friends tonight, his new MOPS class (so much more fun for him than last year and he has his good buddy), apple picking and his stuffed penguins.
Right now I am grateful for……
a friend who interrupts her “regularly scheduled programming” to invite us over for supper and chat time, the pizza man for delivering our dinner tonight, a new intimate MOPS group with wonderful women and an incredible theme for the year, pumpkin custard, a certain CNN video and my husband who has such passion for his work, loving homeschool friends to share this journey with, fuzzy slippers, a note from a former students mother thanking me for making such an impression on her in third grade (she is now 21!!) and friends who are understanding when you have to back out of something because there is too much on your plate.
I enjoyed our little gratitude moment at bedtime and hope to make it a regular part of our routine. What are you grateful for right now???
