Once a month, as a simple reminder to be grateful and to show gratitude, I will include a post about things (that really aren’t things at all) that have given me reasons to be thankful. “Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” Marcel Proust

Lately I’ve been thankful for:


Flying together as a family and flight attendants who are kind enough to give us an entire row of seats to ourselves.


Flowers that brighten a gloomy day.


Gifts from friends that echo appreciation for natural toys and imaginative play. (Not pictured: Friends that leave gifts of bone broth on your doorstep, fueling your inner hippie.)


This swing, which was gifted to us from my sister and her family after 6+ years of use.

What has given you a reason to be thankful in the past month?





This post has been inspired by Today’s Letters, where Emily Loerke shares “Gratitude Lately” on her blog.

One thought on “Week{ender}

  1. I am thankful to God for giving me a wonderful husband of 34 years, such fabulous daughters, son-in-laws, and beautiful grandchildren!!! I am grateful that both my girls are raising their children with outside activities vs electronics and screen time, healthy eating, and a great foundation of love!!!
