happy friday! love <3
in a list form
Thank you so very much for this unexpected heat wave. Seeing the 50s at the end of December is my weather dream.
I’ve loved walking the dog in the warm evenings with light drizzle and am certain that this sweet reprieve will help me get through the coming months of cold.
While I know this weather can’t last and we’ll be back to cold days and freezing nights sooner than I would like, I appreciate this break more than you’ll ever know.
All my best,
while the list of things to thank you for has no end, today i am really grateful for the way you are with me about Christmas.
thanks for driving around with me to look for awesome Christmas lights while we listen to cheesy Christmas music. i know there is no chance you enjoy this activity as much as i do and the fact that you love me enough to enjoy it with me makes it twice as fun. you’re the best.
p.s. i like how you get so excited about each present you’ve wrapped that you require me to stop, inspect the wrapping job and compliment your abilities. it’s hilarious and adorable. good job.
sometimes it’s the small things and my love for lists. today is one of those times. :)
We raised $1,908!
That means clean drinking water for 95 people. Woo!!!
the ability to customize. yeah, i feel like a total jerk ordering my triple-grande-soy-skinny-peppermint-mocha.but! it’s delicious, they don’t seem to mind and i walk away with a perfect friday morning treat. thanks for that, starbucks. i appreciate it.
Summary of Findings from a UC Davis study on the correlation between gratitude and well-being. So interesting!
My work is doing a social media series (on Twitter and Facebook) of daily gratitude under the hashtag #Grateful4. It’s been amazing to see the things people have posted- and to remember how much we have to be grateful for in our lives.
For being so awesome at living.
I just started back to the gym (people can read more about my gym and food life here. I write about it a lot.) and wow, body. You are amazing. The way you love to exercise, how you get stronger and can do more than I expect- you blow my mind.
I am so grateful that you are healthy. And will keep working to make you more that way because I appreciate the benefits in more ways than just feeling physically great.
this week has been hard, i’ll be honest.
but here’s the thing about hard weeks- there is so much to be grateful for in the middle of hard days.
-grateful for a job that is constantly growing and changing
-grateful for friends who make me laugh and are lavish in their encouragements
-grateful for my sweet husband who puts up with all of my crazy with a hug, a kiss and a silly joke
-grateful for early grey tea lattes (sugar free, of course) and the comfort of really simple things like a delicious fall beverage
-grateful for my little dog who matches fall and loves to go jogging with me
-grateful for all of the reminders that a hard week for me isn’t that hard at all. i have a home, a family, a job, friends and a really great life. i’m a lucky girl.my world is unimaginably full of love.
-most of all, grateful for the ways i’m growing. the places where i’m learning again what it looks like to trust God with myself and my future. the places where i’m realizing that my approach now is very different from my approach before, hopefully more honest, more sincere and much more mature.
my sweet friend ali posted this on her blog (you should read the whole post), such a great verse from an amazing hymn:
O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.
