Gratitude Sunday

Can you see the heart? I love finding hearts...they just appear naturally.
I'm joining Taryn Wilsom from Wooly Moss Roots for
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.}
If you would like to join us, see below.

Our gratefulness feeds one another.


  Throughout the week I've felt grateful for:
* A little extra time this week to ride my bicycle, more than I had planned.
*My Mom unexpectedly accompanying me on a day trip to Eugene. Just the two of us! So rare. Shopping, lunch, and just a nice time to be together.
*The little animals that lend themselves to the excitement, love and handling from my little boys. They just love those little critters...snakes, salamanders, birds.
*The beauty of birth, My friend April had her baby girl. Tessa Amber. I feel so incredibly honored that her parents chose my name to be part of their daughter's name. Blessed be.
*My dad letting me borrow his motorcycle for me to have a chance to ride with out owning a motorcycle. Wow that bike is fun to ride...I am just dreaming of a long, long, ride. Exhilarating!
*My friend Fuzzy giving me an abundance of fresh produce from his garden. Oh those fresh greens are such a delight. Real wholesome food is so nourishing.
* You tube. Yep! You tube has been such an awesome resource for me to learn how to sew. I have been watching it like crazy, over and over again, then straight to the rotary cutter and sewing machine, so much fun!
*Tres' efforts in continuing to make the chicken pen better and better each week. What is even more awesome is he seems to find materials laying around our place. Not one piece of material has been purchased in building our chicken coop and fence!
*Lunch with two friends this week. It was so fun to meet my two friends together for lunch at her house. Time to catch up, get that serotonin flowing, and get reinvigorated for the rest of the day.
*Going to bed an a little earlier than normal. It was a good change for me and felt great to wake up not tired! Gee what a good night's sleep can do for me, amazing.
* friend Stephanie went to Moldova for school/internship, before she left we held a blessing way for her. To support her efforts, ease fears, help to embrace the unknown. Being a part of the ceremony is powerful and I could see the worries and fears fly away from her by the end of the time together. Ceremony is a beautiful and precious way to support one another and I feel so grateful for those whom I can share ceremony with.
