The Gratitude Post

I'm writing a weekly post to express gratitude for everything I have been blessed with in my life. Will you join me in sharing just five things you are grateful for this week?

This week I'm grateful for:

Decisions: I made a significant decision about my life this week and I'm very thankful for it. It feels good and right. I'll let you know later.

Support: I'm eternally thankful for all the support that I have in my life, no matter who it comes from or when or where. It would be difficult for anyone to go through life without any support whatsoever and I am so glad I don't have to.

Using the Potty: Yes, I've been using it for some time now, but Heidi finally did it on her own, without any prompting or guidance whatsoever! (She has done it once or twice before, but this was the first time she actually sat there and emptied her bladder, rather than just a spurt or drop.) I'm so happy that the end of her time in diapers is actually in sight! I cannot even begin to describe the sigh of relief I feel at the prospect of not having to cart diapers everywhere we go anymore! Yes!!!! Thank you, Heidi!

Peppermint Tea: I love it. I've been drinking it more lately because A. it's getting colder and B. I put the tea bags around in hopes of deterring the ants who continue to invade my home. It hasn't really worked, but I'm enjoying it anyway.

Frozen Soup: I've been freezing good size portions of most of the soups I made this month in preparation for days when I don't feel like doing anything. After eating out for 5 days straight this past week while some in-laws were visiting, I needed my own food. I'm so grateful to the giant bowl of soup plus brown rice I had because it made me feel like a real person again. Ahh.


  1. Freezer soup is a brilliant idea! Also, go Heidi! I definitely feel a great deal of gratitude for support as well, so I feel you on that one :)

  2. Can't wait to hear what the significant decision is! My guesses: You're becoming a shark trainer or you are starting an etsy shop for all of the amazing things you make.

  3. Thank you again for creating this weekly practice. I'm looking forward to hearing more about a decision that has turned out well for you. Your third one made me laugh. I almost work the baby. I'm working on my post right now and plan to schedule it for tomorrow morning (hopefully I'll remember to link up in time)

  4. Yes, Charise. You know me too well. I've decided to reveal to the world that I am actually a shark. With good teeth. Chomp chomp.

    I look forward to it as always Zoie, no matter when it happens :)

    (Thanks MK :) )

  5. And by "work," I meant "woke." Whoops!

  6. I hope you're okay. Remember I have free incoming texts so all you need to do it texts me and tell me to get on aim/skype/fb and I'm there. =)
