gratitude sunday

gratitude — the state of being grateful : thankfulness

  • A week-long birthday celebration helped ease the mixed feelings I had about my 45th
  • A visit from my brother’s family
  • The burst of blooms from the magnolia tree; it seems like we had to wait forever this year
  • Warm wishes from faraway friends (who we always keep close in our hearts)
  • Major thrifting scores at the Goodwill and Salvation Army
  • More seeds sprouted and planted — the early garden continues to grow
  • One cottontail rabbit has been trapped and “relocated” several miles away, far away from our peas and beans
  • Egg salad sandwiches
  • Being reminded to “Look for the helpers. You’ll always find people who are helping.” — (Mr.) Fred Rogers, on what to do when scary things happen.
  • Superfun evening with my husband Friday night at the Musikfest Cafe
  • Where we enjoyed a great comedy set by Marc Maron, who succeeded to make us all laugh when the week’s events seemed determined to do otherwise. For that we are so very grateful

  1. A beautiful magnolia–I used to wait all year for mine to bloom and hope for the right weather so it would be in its full glory. And your next picture–daffodils! We used to have a bed of them beneath the tree. I’m grateful for the lovely memories you’ve brought to mind of springs past, I live in an apartment now so have to go out and search for the beauty. BTW–I always called my magnolia “my blessing tree” because it always made me meditate and pray. Thanks for the memories.
