Gratitude Linkup - Week of 6/8/14

3 years ago

One of the best ways to have perspective, for me, is to remember the things I'm grateful for. There have been times when I've gotten stuck in negativity that I've done a quick gratitude list (in my head or with another) and started on the path of releasing that negativity. Gratitude lists help me to remember what's beautiful and to remain present in my life.

Each week, Laurel Regan's Gratitude linkup over at Alphabet Salad is a way for me to share a few of the things I'm grateful for with others.

A few of the things I'm grateful for today are:

  • A great day spent with my dad and mom.
  • Baby Boy recovering from his fever (and that it was only teething).

  • The continued emergence of Baby Boy's language skills.
  • Allowing myself space and love, even in the midst of busy.
  • Growth. As a woman, mother, and blogger.
  • Tasty, cold, fresh cantaloupe!
  • Accepting compliments and recognition.
  • Lovingly, willingly, and freely giving love and support to another.
  • Learning to sew on Hun's great machine! And creating these diapers!

  • Lists. And Planning. And Dreaming.
  • Clean, purified water!
  • Baby Boy's toy mess. It tells me he's learning, occupying himself, and having fun!
