Give Me The Grateful Life - Monday

The last two weeks have sucked the big one for a myriad of reasons, some huge and significant, some small and merely bothersome.  But the thing about life is that each new day, each new week, is an opportunity for improvement.   At least that's how I'm choosing to look at it right now.

So let's focus on some gratitude!

  • I am grateful for a new week: one where I won't be wasting away in bed.
  • I am grateful each day my daughter peforms better in school.
  • I am grateful for the giggle I just had when my daughter fell in the pool fully clothed (while playing fetch with my dog).
  • I am grateful for the beautiful flowers blooming in my yard.
  • I am grateful for gouda cheese.

What are you grateful for this week?  Please share.

Beautiful post. Reflecting on what we have to be grateful for can be so refreshing.

I'm grateful for my daughter and her cheerful smile (even when she has a cold). I'm also grateful for the beautiful weather and beautiful spring flowers.

I'm grateful for all variety of cheese and I've got the big arse to prove it!

P.S. Hope you turn the corner over the next two weeks.

I'm grateful that this heat will not last the week. Inland it has SUCKED!

I am grateful for red wine, impromptu parties, and new friends to share both with.

I am grateful that Andy ended up not traveling to TX.

I'm grateful that just the thought of him being gone for a whole week makes me miss him like crazy.

I am grateful for my children. I am grateful my daughter is such an amazing person, and my baby boy is such an inspiration to others.
