Gratitude Sunday

This week I have felt so grateful for my children. I know that they depend on me for so many things (as it should be), but in the past few weeks I have begun to realize how much I depend on them as well. It's nothing short of magical to watch children learn and grow, and I am feeling pretty lucky that I get to join them in their journey.
I am also feeling so grateful for the place in which I live.... In the past couple of weeks alone I have been to the ocean and in mountains, walked through giant tress, and been surrounded by colorful blooms.
And, lastly, I am feeling grateful that summer is just a few short weeks away. I will have a break from work, the kids will have a break from school, and we have quite a few exciting adventures coming out way.
What have you felt grateful for this week?
