{Gratitude} Lately

Tuesday, August 21, 2012



Thankful for memories made with my wombmate.



For shaky legs after a ride at the lake.



For road trips that begin before the sunrise.


For unexpected flight vouchers that keep far away friends close.


For mid-day coffee breaks at Crooked Tree.


For mango nectarines that taste of summer's end.

For this dude who I get to kiss every day.


For the excuse to stop at roadside fruit stands.


For fishing waders worn in the house.


And for good food and even better friends. What have you been grateful for lately? Learning gratitude turns everything into enough. {Still learning}.

Gratitude - for the educations that me and my girl cousin V are blessed with - in some countries we wouldn't have the opportunities that we have here in the UK.

She's going to Uni in like four weeks to study Psychology! Rock On!!!!

I'm grateful for

...having friends that let us stay for 2 weeks (and counting)
...feeling the sun shine on me every day since we got to the south of France
...for having music to keep me working when it feels to hot and humid to
...for having a home city as amazing as London to miss thoroughly

and for your blog which always makes me re-examine my priorities and perspective a little,

oooo, i needed this perspective shift this morning!

i'm thankful for lazy summer days with nowhere to be. which is all about to change when school starts for my first grader next week...trying to savor these last few days.

Lovely post! Today I'm grateful for sore legs from my run, birthdays, and my avocado buffalo chicken wrap for lunch (among other things)

For an unexpected visit from Ashley last night that allowed us to sit on the front porch and talk about the days the three of you grew up on the block. She thanked us for the freedom we gave you three girls to live freely, and sometimes without swimming suits, as that apparently prepared her for living in Europe.... We are such prudes here in the US! She is still such a joy in our lives.

Grateful for a little girl that makes me laugh, think, and practice patience daily - a little boy who loves fiercely ( insert kisses with baby bites) - a husband who loves me no matter how fussy I am - and an extended family that supports us!!!

The baby flutters in my belly I just got to feel for the first time the other night, celebrating our one year anniversary, a free 20" macbook desktop computer (my first computer of my own ever!), and a purchased flight to see my TU girls for girls' weekend in Dallas in October!!! Woohoo. So much good. :)

today- grateful for my sweet hubby, who loves me much more than I could have ever hoped for (save from Christ), and for the wonderful memories of our wedding 10 months ago today. so good. we are so blessed.

btw, your last blog on gratitude lately inspired me. I am blogging one thing I am grateful for every day for a year. Thank you...it's already created a much needed shift in my focus throughout each day.

Roasted carrots, two little ones that make me smile everyday, a good man that takes walks with me after dinner, & friends that stay close even when they're far away.
