I think about writing a post for Molly’s new blog almost daily. Why? Because I am grateful for so much, every single day. I let life get in the way of expressing that gratitude. So thank you Molly for reminding us to put the word to paper.
Recently, I attended another artist retreat. That makes two for this year. Am I grateful for that? Yes.
Am I grateful that our son opened up his home to us for four nights, so we wouldn’t have to buy a hotel room? Which allowed me learn and play? Yes.
Am I grateful that our two grand daughters got to spend three of the four nights with us at his apartment? Yes. I can never get enough of them.
Am I grateful that we were all able to have fun and party in this one bedroom apartment, with the girls sleeping on a blow up mattress in the living room, and our son on a cot in the kitchen? Yes. Feeling guilty, but grateful!
Am I grateful they love dogs and Maddie was not only welcome, but was played with and loved on constantly? Yes.
Small gestures reap huge rewards. I am so grateful we have that kindness that runs so freely in our family. I never take it for granted.
Hugs to all,
