gratitude always....


I thought I'd start this week like I start each day, thinking about what I am grateful for:

Last week was a bit rough in a few different ways, one being health

Alex and I had food poisoning that knocked us for a loop for several days

to feel even remotely better was a source of pure joy for us both!

So grateful to be feeling good again

The second rough spot was all of the nastiness floating around the

internet after the election.  I don't like to talk politics but I do applaud

and respect everyone that got out to vote regardless of which side of

the fence they were on.  I for one am grateful to live in a country where

we have so many freedoms that are not allowed to many others in other

parts of the world and for that I am so very thankful.

Kindess is essential in life - there is so much

bitterness in people at times, and chipping away

at them with a smile or a sweet word eventually

will soften their hard shell.  I have seen it in action

so many times in my life!  

Grateful to the people that spread joy naturally.

So looking forward to seeing my kids next week,

Grateful that they are healthy, happy and loving

and caring human beings, as a parent what

more can you ask for?

Grateful for spending the day with a girlfriend,

no one understands you like your girlfriends!


Cheers to a wonderful week ahead practicing
the art of kindness in every part of our day!


Life is good!

How awful to hear about the food poisoning!
It's always a good idea to take a moment and reflect on the things one is grateful for.

Glad that you have that spring back in your step. I tend not to talk politics but some people are really passionate about it and make their feelings heard ~ yikes! Love your list of things you are grateful for Cathi ~ seeing the kids on the week-end will be a big bonus for you. Enjoy your week. xo
