Tonight is a harder one. A wonderful day but it's definitely a harder evening emotionally than I've had in the the last handful of days....so maybe listing some gratitudes will be a good thing?!
Today I'm thankful for:
---Attentive dogs who read me like a book
---Mom's presence in the house these last few days, especially in the evenings, and her ability to alter a few of my freebie shirts
---Enjoyment from cooking up another new dinner combination--most of which was from locally grown veggies and healthy options
---Breakfasts of fruit and coffee
---A trip out to Sauvies Island for sunshine and farm goods with two of my cousins
---A quick peek at adorable farm animals
---Backroads and country music, especially Little Big Town's Pontoon song :)
---Fitting in a quick Insanity work-out in the garage
---The delicious taste of yesterday's applesauce
---The ability to honestly write an email last night from my soul
---Trying to trust in God's hand over my life
---Prayers for grace at the dinner table
---Feeling my muscles becoming leaner and stronger
---The feel of sunshine kissing skin
---Great news of baby #2 on the way for my friend Heather!
---Getting a box of free pears from my aunt & uncle
---Reading blogs of like-minded individuals
---And hitting the hay early to hopefully be able to sleep off these emotions!
I'm grateful for each one of you readers :)
