~ I’m once again joining Taryn over at Wooly Moss Roots in her Gratitude Sunday tradition. ~
Gratitude Sunday is a time to slow down and remember those thankful moments that graced our week. One reason I love keeping a daily gratitude journal is because it helps keep things in perspective for me. Each Sunday, I open my journal and share some of those moments with you here. If you’d like to join in, just leave a comment!
Gratitude is powerful energy. I love hearing others’ gratitudes!
– Cool, fresh night air after a rain storm.
– Crickets close to the open window.
– A bath.
– Finding freshly fallen apricots on the sidewalk to satisfy my hunger during an outing.
– Slow mornings when I need them. Sometimes it takes a while to get my energy going. It’s so nice not to have to force it in order to show up at a job.
– Stumbling upon a fascinating documentary on PBS called “Summer Pasture” about a young, nomadic Tibetan family with an infant daughter. We were riveted.
– A nice week. Fairly chaotic with all the packing and details associated with moving, but still a nice week.
– Making good headway in packing up everything and cleaning this place. I’m especially thankful for the coincidental discovery of a bunch of good moving boxes and packing material in a nearby alley, and my mom for transporting it to our apartment. Thank you Mom! They have been invaluable.
– My garden and how it’s doing so well…
– Those incredible garden tomatoes! Sliced garden tomato, organic avocado, sea salt. OMG!
– Seeing, again, a family friend from New Zealand who my mom has known for 40 years. It was so nice to see him again, even for just a short time.
– Birds singing. It was eerily quiet this morning when I awoke, and I realized how much I cherish the constant background of birdsong, even if I’m not always consciously aware of it.
– My family’s great appreciation of my garden produce. It warms my heart that they all love it so much.
What about you? What has been on your gratitude list this week?
