"Let's have a merry journey, and shout about how light is good and dark is not. What we should do is not future ourselves so much. We should now ourselves. "NOW thyself" is more important than "Know thyself." Reason is what tells us to ignore the present and live in the future. So all we do is make plans. We think that somewhere there are going to be green pastures. It's crazy. Heaven is nothing but a grand, monumental instance of future. Listen, now is good. Now is wonderful." ~ Mel Brooks

Weekly Gratitude :: May Fair

Welcome to Gratitude! If you feel called to join along please link up in the comments section below with any post that expresses your gratitude and reverence for the "little things" in your life. Share on your blog, spread the word on Facebook or any other social outlet. Let's slow it down and enjoy our time and remember to be thankful for all the moments that make life worth while! 

This week was one of those weeks where stopping was not an option. Every moment was full! Monday, the lady I care for moved into the new Camphill facility in our area. It was such an exciting day, however emotional stressful, the space is beautiful, the people are amazing, the view from her new house is breath-taking. It was a long day of unpacking and meetings but a happy day, nonetheless. The whole experience has been so wonderful and for that I am truly grateful!

The rest of the week consisted of being with my Mother who is still recovering from her surgery from 12 weeks ago. I am very thankful to be able to give her my time and to spend good quality time with her. It isn't easy some days but I wouldn't change anything (except it would be nice for her to be well again!).

Then came preparing (mentally) for a friend who had asked me to prepare several dozen baked goods for a Celebration of Life she was holding in honor of her Father. I felt honored she had asked me to provide the treats but had become overwhelmed at the amount that was desired. In the end, we decided that we (our family) would ignore the tasks at hand in lieu of some FUN! I am so grateful we did......it had been weeks since we had all been together (sadly our son was not able to join us so he was missed very dearly), outside, laughing and enjoying every single second.

We left nice an early and went to our local Waldorf School to take part in their Spring Fair. I will let some of our photos tell the rest of our story. There was so much more we didn't get to photograph......Bella on the zip line, the Kindergarten space and puppet show, children walking around on stilts, the girls jumping into hay bales, the St. Michael and the Dragon wagon ride! It was all so thrilling and wonderful.

Wishing you all a lovely week full of the most wonderful moments that you will cherish for a lifetime xoxo
