gratitude sunday


gratitude — the state of being grateful : thankfulness

On this Gratitude Sunday, I am grateful for:

  • A wonderful Memorial Day spent with my whole family — such a rare treat to have everyone together and the weather could not have been more perfect
  • The weather also cooperating with my weekend to allow me some quality garden time
  • Another reminder of the importance of being a forgiving person
  • The rich vibrant colors of spring that are so inspiring and uplifting


  • Nieces!
  • Cones of dutch chocolate ice cream
  • Finding the (very bad) kitty safe and sound after he escaped outdoors during a thunderstorm
  • Each and every day we have with our 15-year-old lab/chow Bayliss (who is beginning to show early signs of congestive heart failure 😦 )
  • A new issue of Taproot magazine
  • Getting out the paintbrushes for the first time in way too long
  • The first birdsong, just before sunrise
  • Celebrating 17 years of togetherness with my husband ♥♥♥
