.:Beauty and simplicity surround us all the time and are things that I try to embrace as often as I can slow down to see. Every Monday I will postâ€¦a â€śgrowing gratitudeâ€ť post. Basking in our own state of gratitude as well as the gratitude of others always seems uplifting to me. Plus, I always love a good positive start to the beginning of each week. I will put a Mr. Linky at the end of each weekâ€™s post in hopes that some of you may want to join in this mindfulness journey with me. You can formulate your own posts however you want toâ€¦lots of pictures, or none; lots of thoughts, or maybe just one profound one. The main gist is to share whatever you are feeling grateful for in your lifeâ€¦right now; here and now; in the present. Iâ€™ve included a button as well, so if youâ€™re interested, you can grab a button and link back to each weekâ€™s post. So letâ€™s begin, shall we?:.
…admiring the strong connection animals and children seem to innately have.
…loving where we live more and more each and everyday.
…reminded of how important and connective explorations with my children can be.
…thinking I won’t be able to s q u e e z e into my “normal” clothes for very much longer.
…grateful for several long-ish stretches of knitting time over the past week.
…excited about the local farmer’s market and some people I met who are willing to mentor me in areas I would love to learn.
…feeling the deep sense of promise that this spring is happily handing out…and breathing it in as deep as my lungs can muster.
