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:

A place to live: A week ago, I wasn't sure where I was going to be living until the day before I had to vacate my apartment. I am so, so thankful that I have a roof over my head and a new place to call home.

A job: I have at least one guaranteed job this coming January and I am incredibly grateful for it. I have faith that I will have another and I am already grateful for the bounty it will bring me.

Wonderful friends: It seems I cannot thank my friends enough and I'm sure they're getting tired of hearing 'thank you' 10,000 times, but it is so appropriate. I really have the best friends in the world who help me at all hours, dropping their lives to help make mine more comfortable. You people who are my friends: You rock.

My eyes: I've never needed glasses and I can see pretty darn well, thanks to my amazing eyes. I'm grateful for the work they do every day, for letting me see my children, the food I'm making and the beauties of the Earth.

My drying rack: Never before have I ever been so grateful for my drying rack. At the moment, I do not have a dryer so drying space for my clothing/diapers is at a premium. I'm glad it affords me some space to hang things even if it isn't hardly enough.


  1. I love reading your gratitude posts every week. I'm glad things are falling into place for you!

  2. Another week of gladness for doing this post with you. Every week, I have such resistance to writing these until I get into it. Then, it all melts away and I feel happy.

    I love my drying rack, too. And my clothes line-like I giggle sometimes looking at my clothes drying in the sun.

  3. I'm so glad you're getting settled into your new space and things are coming together. Having good friends to help along the way is a wonderful, wonderful thing!

  4. Thank you!!

    It's the little things that make all the difference!

  5. I'm late, but I'm leaving you my link anyway.... http://momgrooves.com/2011/11/gratitude-111911/

    This is another wonderful list. I feel like I can have my friends every week too! Sometimes more actual friends and sometimes I could specify blog friends.... including you.
    Do you like inscense? I didn't "get" that you were moving, but I just came across a nice little set of "house blessing" inscense. I'd love to send you a little housewarming thing... It would make *me* really happy.
    Let me know.
