- I am grateful for finding when I seek. The internet is full of beautiful souls pouring themselves out for us to soak up and I am grateful for being able to follow one link after another and find balm for my soul, kindred spirits I may never meet or ever read again, for that matter, but for that moment, we’re one in the same, in the same place. I’m overwhelmed by the wealth of Lenten posts, such as this one from A Holy Experience.
- I am grateful for my extended family. I was able to see my Gran (dad’s mom), Aunt Annelle (dad’s sister), Uncle Johnny, cousins Charlotte Anne and Huston and Huston’s girlfriend this evening at the farm. Nora loves going out there and loves hanging out with her relatives. She’s very into the interconnectedness of it all and likes to have the relationships described several times so she can fully understand and repeat who is connected to who in what way. We are lucky. Driving home last night, I was listening to Kenny Loggins’ Danny’s Song. It’s one of my favorites, especially since my pregnancy with Nora. Now I see a family where there once was none, we’ve just begun, now we’re gonna fly to the sun…
- I am grateful for Fridays. I know these are my Thursday gratitudes, but I felt like it was Friday all day and it wasn’t… So instead of being upset about the unfairness of it all (it is totally unfair), I will be thankful for Fridays in general. Hopefully the weather will be nice and we go for walks. Nora is begging to go on a walk and play outside, she is so her father’s daughter. I like to look at outside from a window or sit in the sun and read a book… She is full speed ahead doing ALL THE THINGS all the time. Love it, love it, love it.
