"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

Gratitude: A Season of Mindfulness Day 3

Gratitude Sunday
I've decided to join up with Taryn at Wooly Moss Roots for her Gratitude Blog link-up. (thank you, Momto5 at A Family's Journey for introducing this blog to me through your lovely blog!!)
G r a t i t u d e * S u n d a y
{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.}
I had begun my own Gratitude link-up a while ago, not knowing that this one existed. Sharing gratitude is so much more inspiring when it's captured with others........I'm thankful to be joining up with others today xo
* Angels, seen and unseen
* Walking away from what could have been 2 really nasty car accidents (in one day)
* Waking up early with Seraphina and being grateful for waking up at all
* Having lots of special, alone moments with each of my children this week
* My continued work for finding ways to not feel less than when I'm surrounded by people who live very radical lifestyles
* The steadfast love and support of my Dad and Sister
*Apologizing and meaning it
*Being excited about change
* Knowing I have time to just be this week and focus on cleaning and our continued Advent preparations
* Knowing deep down that some days, it's OK to resign.
* Friends! Friends are amazing nourishment for the soul.



  1. love that picture of the kids at the end. <3 i am working on that one myself.. the one about feeling like you are less when around other who do so much. you are doing enough, so am i. :)

  2. We are doing enough! You just made my day by saying that xo

    It is no matter what others are doing, what only matters is what we're doing (or not doing). We are all happy, fed, loved (lots and lots), we smile and dance and sing and have absolutely nothing to prove.

    How are you today? Blessings to you, my friend :)


I very much enjoy connecting with you in this space. If you feel inspired to leave a comment, please do!
