Everyday gratitude

I believe that cultivating gratitude can transform not only how we view our (beautiful yet deeply imperfect) lives, but transforms our lives themselves.

Each week I will share with you seven things that I am thankful for.

I'd love to have you join me in your own post or simply here in the comments.

Because taking just a moment to appreciate what we have can change everything.




Today I'm thankful for…

1. My freezer and pantry slowly filling with summer's bounty;

2. Clean fleeces from our spring shearing piling up in my porch;

3. Finding my writing voice and carving out small moments to write once more;

4. A rainbow of paint spattered on my arms from a busy week of transforming ordinary into extraordinary;

5. Watching my children follow their passions and their dreams;

6. Their voices whispering to me after light's out about the small business ideas they have for tomorrow;

And 7. Simple abundance of every sort.

Link up to a post of your own in the comments, or simply leave your list there. I look forward to seeing what ordinary, extraordinary blessings you're counting today.

    I am thankful for the rain. The sound. The nourishment and the magic. Thanks for posting. I have found a wonderful calmness in your daily postings.

    I am thankful that you have a family cow. These pictures with you so cozy with that huge animal gives me hope that my flighty girls will someday be calm and give me gallons of sweet milk.
