Gratitude Sunday

Good morning! I'm joining Taryn today, over at Wooly Moss Roots for

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.}

This week I have been grateful for

- The rain. It's been so peaceful and dark around here with rain pretty much constantly all week long. I missed the rain so much when I lived in Arizona. It's wonderful to have it now.

- Going on walks in the rain with the kids. We put on our rain gear and truly enjoyed the wonder of rainy days.

- Making this beautiful craft with the kids on a day that truly felt like winter. Candle holders out of clementines, cloves, and cranberries. They smelled wonderful too.

- Having had a car to drive this week. I've been riding my bike everywhere since April, and it's been such a blessing to have been lent a car these past two weeks. I was grateful to be dry throughout the day.

- Some wise words from a teacher, about how we all try to be so small. We should let that go, and be the biggest versions of ourselves. 

- A trip to the ocean. This always refreshes me. This time in particular, e.e. cummings words were strong: "as small as a world and as large as alone."

What have you been grateful for?

Beautiful list. We used to live at the ocean before my sons were born. It definitely fed my soul. Glad you got to make the trip.

What a lovely list. The sea is a special place one which I don't visit that often it has an energy that refreshes.
