Gratitude * Sunday

G r a t i t u d e * S u n d a y

{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.}
Today I am joining Taryn Wilson from in a list
of my own gratitudes.

This week I have felt grateful for...

* A flexible work schedule. I am still able to get quality time with my kids and myself while working. It is quite a balance for family and work, but I feel my two jobs support my desire to be here for my family too.

*My parents as grandparents. My kids are so lucky to have such cool grandparents. They go out of their way to make quality time for my children. This is truly a gift for the whole family.

*A husband that is great at making me laugh out loud. I love to laugh! It is so uplifting and Tres can really make me crack up. Thank goodness for a great sense of humor.

*Garden delights! I am planting seeds, preparing beds, weeding, and water starts. Now I am harvesting beets, carrots, parsnips, chard, chives, and celery. I all of this in dinner and lunch today! What a treat to harvest veggies that have wintered over. I also just love making use of the garden in each season.

*Changes in weather. It is just magnificent to feel that sun and warmth. Less clothing, no shoes, eating outside, playing until dark. The changes in the weather really brings some wanted change around here.

*A book that I have come to pick up almost daily now for a source of great information. Prescription for Nutritional Healing. This book is one that I refer to so often, just to know more. It is so great to have a very dependable readable resource.

*Time on my bike. It is not always easy to find the time, but when I do I am so grateful. I love  that time to get my heart beating fast, feel the air, listen and smell my surroundings while riding.

*Friends! oh thank you friend. It feels good to know my friends enjoy and trust me as much as I do them. Woman friends are a powerful source in this life and I am so glad to have them.

*Phone calls from Jake. He is great about calling me. It feels so good just to hear about his day and hear his voice. I miss him a lot of the time, but I am so proud of him and I know he is just where he wants to be.

*Ruben with the chickens. I could just sit and watch him with the chickens. I get to see him be so  nurturing to them and curious about them. He has really created a bond with the little feather girls. He is also having so much fun with them.
