Today I appreciate fans and curtains to keep our home cool in the summer heat. I appreciate time to reflect and type, intentionally open my heart and feel my feelings, brainstorm garden details, finish big projects, and prepare for upcoming projects.
I am grateful for this space between big projects, this quiet space in which to think and rest. I appreciate a dinner date with my husband. I cherish my children having such a great time with an energetic intelligent creative young woman while I run errands. Watching them run and joyfully shriek, yeah, that's good too.
I am thankful for patiently talking with my children about tools to use instead of whining or fighting. I appreciate sun and rain to help our garden grow. I love thunder and lightening and laughter and anticipation and untying knots. I appreciate my daughter's excitement each time she goes out to see her garden and each plant she has grown from seed. I appreciate craft time with friends, food time with friends, play time with friends, feeling such love and appreciate for our friends, feeling at home in our community.
I appreciate being so in love with my home and land and cherishing the fruits of our labors. I appreciate this blog as a creative outlet. I appreciate sharing this daily list with you, Dear Reader. I enjoy knowing I could go on forever with this list, and knowing I GET TO pause whenever I choose.
What's on your list today?
