Gratitude


~ for a little man who loves being outside as much as I do

~ for "I love you" whispered into my ear frequently throughout the day


~ for hints of spring

~ for the beauty of snow, it really is beautiful...yes, even in March


~ for trusting my gut in a society that often pushes too much, too soon and too fast

~ for the very best teacher a mother could ask for


~ for our home, a place where my soul feels at peace

~ for this life and the people I get to share it with

What are you  grateful for today?

  1. What a wonderful list... This is my favorite and I'm grateful for it in my life as well : "for trusting my gut in a society that often pushes too much, too soon and too fast"... We are going through major sleep issues with our youngest and so many tell us to let him cry it out. We can't do it. We don't believe in it. Babies need love, not someone that will leave them in the dark in distress. So to my gratitude list, I will also ass : for a husband that shares the load equally and without question.

    Have a wonderful "day-after-the-storm"!

    1. Thank you. I hear you on the crying it out, we couldn't do it either, deep inside it just didn't feel right. Hope he is sleeping better soon.

      I will certainly try, you too!

  5. That first picture is just wonderful! These are such heart warming things. I smiled through reading the whole post.

    Right now I am grateful for our puppy who is still potty training and since she still pees on the floor I have to mop every day thus keeping our floors very clean.

  6. The snow is pretty even in March. I'm so ready for spring! I'm grateful for my 3yr old taking a nap on me as I type, healthy children, being content with what we do have.

  10. Lovely heart warming list. I'm grateful for so many things, but at the moment, particularly sunshine and light and colour, and always being a Mum and all the love that brings every which way.

  11. Always listen to your gut, I did and it never ever steered me the wrong way. I raised my kids against the tide as well and we never fit in with the "in" crowd but my kids were happy and in turn I was happy today!!
